    According to a post on German Forum, European Model X has a 16.5kW charger, which means 24A with three phases.

    US Model S is using 10kW charging with 20kW with double charger. (40 and 80A)
    EU Model S is using 11kW charging with 22kW with double charger. (3x16 and 3x32A)
    US Model X is using 12kW charging with 18kW secret option. (48 and 72A)
    EU Model X is using 16.5kW charging with no secret option. (3x24A)

    24A is a strange choice, as all sockets in EU are either 16 or 32A, which perfectly matched options on Model S.

    I wonder what will be the maximum current for the UMC. For Model S it was 3x16A, and you had to go aftermarket to use 3x32A.

    What about charging on single phase lines, 24A max as well?

    Seems to be 24A as well.
    Mobile connector + Blue adapter is doing some magic where it spreads the load on all three phases, and then can charge at 1x32A

    Will the European version of Model X have the same type2 charge port as Model S, or will it have a CCS-compatible port?

    It's only two extra large DC-pins below the type2 port.

    It would be convenient to be able to charge on rapid chargers without an adapter. Specially now that some charging providers like Clever are announcing their plans to upgrade to 150 kW charging speeds on their rapid chargers.

    Type 2 port as Model S. No CCS.

    Correct. And also not motorized (!).
