    This was brought up on a Tesla owner Facebook forum, but where is the charge port? It doesn't look like it's in the tail lights, and I can't find it anywhere else.

    This is a prototype. There is probably an extension cord wrapped up in that trunk that won't open yet.

    They opened up the trunk in one of the videos. There was some extra equipment in there, so it's possible it is in the trunk, for now.

    I'm thinking it would be consistently in the rear tail-light.

    Maybe the charge port is in the front fender Tesla Logo?

    Charge port will need to stay approximately where it is on the S/X otherwise the SuperChargers will need to be redesigned; a cost I don't see Tesla volunteering for.

    That's not a hatchback o_O that's a conventional trunk. I thought it was a hatchback/liftback like the S :eek:

    Exactly! I made the same discovery this morning. Looks like I'll be sticking with an S or X for now.

    In one of the videos, someone pointed at the driver's rear taillight and asked if that's where the charge port is. Answer was "yes".
