    Hi all,

    Ordered a Model 3 today and got thinking about supercharging etc.

    After some digging around on TMC and tesla.com, I'm worried.

    This is on-topic as the Tesla site is now closed for maintenance, and I was wondering if it had anything to do with all the new products they put on there in the last couple of days.

    Besides the changes to the Model S, people on the forums were saying the Tesla Wall Connector was no longer available in the store. I checked (Europe) and there IS a wall connector available, and it says it's the "new wall connector". Has this item in the store changed? And how is it improved?

    Another thing, and this is what worries me, is that you can now BUY "enable supercharging" for 2500$. I was under the impression that the supercharging network was free for all Tesla owners. (not confirmed for the Model 3, i know, but Musk says "the same will apply")

    Did they sneak this in there? Is free supercharging a thing of the past? Or is this available for purchase for non-Tesla-EV's?

    Thanks for snooping around on tesla.com and helping me out.

    Don't think this belongs here, but anyway.

    There are two aspects to supercharging. One - your car should be able to supercharge, and Two - the supercharger that you will use to charge your car.

    The original Model S 60 kWh did not come with supercharging enabled on the car (One above) by default, and this had to be added as an option at the time of purchase for $2000. If however one did not add it at the time of purchase, they can still enable it afterwards, paying $2500, which is what you see in the store. Once supercharging is enabled however, charging at the supercharger (Two above) is free for all Model S and Model X.

    For Model ≡ though, I think it is going to be the opposite. Supercharging will be enabled (One above) on all cars, as it is, on all Model S and Model X right now. That is what Elon mentioned. Charging at a supercharger however (Two above), I do not expect to be free. This is just my guess though.

    Thanks for the answer. I won't stray off-topic further.

    Tesla.com appears to be online again. (the supercharger map and the store were offline for maintenance for me for about 15 minutes)

    Tesla changed the link in the header of the site from Powerwall to Energy:

    The landing page better feature the Powerpack, on which the company has been increasingly focused since the reveal of Tesla Energy.

    There's also a new "Build & Order" page for the Powerpack: powerpack design.png

    I've got a bug report for the UK Model S order page. (I've reported it to Tesla staff, but no fix yet.)

    It's been broken since the introduction of Slipstream wheels. Replication:
    1. Go to UK order page (Order your Tesla Model S | Tesla Motors UK)
    2. Select a configuration with red brake calipers (P90D)
    3. Select side view with default wheels (Slipstream)
    It tries to access an image that doesn't exist, and fails with a "We're sorry" message and a prompt to reload the page.

    Path of missing resource is /sites/default/files/configurator/MODELS_20160412e/1440/STUD_SIDE__RHD/ms_mi01_stud_side_bc0r_wtas__RHD.png

    If you select another rim type before red brake calipers, or deselect red brake calipers, side view works fine.

    I suspect this happened only in UK because of our market getting summer tyres on all rims; presumably, the code to handle wheels for this market is separate and wasn't fully updated when Slipstream rims were introduced.

    Another Tesla topic: in the "90 second tour around the Tesla Factory" clip you can see the the employees wearing some of those, therefore I'd like to ask if someone knows how to get such a base cap.Thanks a lot! :)

    They must've updated it because I don't see that anymore.

    The Proxy votes have gone out to shareholders via their brokerage systems. I just finished my votes. It was a special meeting with only the merger on the docket.
