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...))
