At least it's a beginning:
Do you have this already? Awesome.
No, it's someone on the other forum.
I heard this was in a Europe Model S.
Anyone yet in Canada or the US?
Can't wait - I've been too lazy to plug in later at night during off peak hours so this will cut my energy costs by at least 30%.
Please post a link (especially with borrowed pics). Thanks.
Here's the link for the discussion and pic on the TM forums: 43-scheduled-charging-does-anyone-has-yet
It was seen on a demo car in Europe. No reports of it in North America yet.
Cool. I hope this feature is disabled for Superchargers.

From reading the full thread I suppose this is in Europe and they're on the 24-hour clock, which makes this noon, but seems like an odd start time.
There's a long history of electronicky (it's a word now... ) things defaulting to 12 (AM or PM) when they don't know any better (wall power pulled, etc.). At least on the Model S, the 12 isn't blinking.
I demand that it blinks!!
Remember that these settings are stored PER CHARGING LOCATION so as long as you don't set a charge timer at a given location it will charge on plug-in. The Roadster works this way as well.
This would be exactly how our Leaf works, fast charging doesn't follow the charging schedule.
I need this feature. I arrived home at on-peak hours and was supposed to plug-in before going to bed. Guess who forgot.
Colin, I plugin as soon as I get home but, stop charging (either from the touchscreen or from the mobile app). I start charging again just before I go to bed using the mobile app.
I really want this too. My method isn't that bad but I still have to wake up at 5 after 11pm to set my car to charge.
My current method:
Plug in the car every time it is in my garage. I do this immediately.
Stop charging via touchscreen, or phone app (if not during super off-peak time).
Set daily alarm on phone for 11:03pm. "Charge Car"
Open phone app, press 'start charging' button. Wait to see car is charging.
Go to bed.

I am too slow.
If you have some facility with computers, you can set up your PC to start the charging at a preset time, using CRON. See Model S REST API
I think i am bit lucky here, i got Blink charger (free) when we purchased nissan leaf 2 years ago. This charger has a timer built in . I am using this timer for late hour charging .
when i saw this option 2 years ago , I thought why would anyone need this feature .. Now i know why !
hopefully tesla will release the new firmware for Timer Charging .
Roadster owners will recognize it. At the can-bus level, the charge time is minutes past midnight (less one) in local time zone.
