    Hi all,

    Trying to figure out if my Model X 2018 will come with a 72amp or 48amp charger.
    Its a 75D, on the spec sheet it says:

    CHARGING
    High Power Charger Included

    But unable to find out what that means. From the looks of the forums its going to be a 48amp, but this is a car going to Australia so it might be different to US orders.

    Any ideas?

    Where does it say ‘high power charging’? All new S and X are 48 Amp unless 100 kWh then you get the 72 Amp. And it’s no longer an option.

    If this were a used car, there may be something to discuss, but that ‘high power’ text is weird.

    Edit: Arg, all that is for USA, lol. For non-single phase, it def is different.

    Here you go. By going to Tesla.com and changing the country to Australia, I found this. Clicked on charging, home charging and it comes up with:

    Tesla vehicles are now equipped with the High Power Charger, capable of 16.5kW. Your Tesla may have other options of on-board chargers.


    For a 75, pretty sure that’s what you getting! :D

    Thanks!!! Don't know why I could not see that at first.

    So it looks like in Australia its 72amp by default... (unless 16.5kw charging does not = 72amp.... (68amp @ 240v...))

    Pretty close, yeah. In any case, it’s close/equivalent to what the 100 car gets in the USA which is interesting.

    Go on the charging screen when you are parked, see if you can bring the A up to 72

    Don't have the car as of yet. Need to know this information prior to decide if I get a 3 phase charger.
    Got a call this afternoon from the DS and he confirmed that my MX 75D will come with the 72amp charger :)
