    Juwi seems to be a renewable energy company based in Germany.

    I know the video was uploaded today, but any idea when the event took place? That's VP18 - the car suspected of being "tuned" by Brabus.

    As we learned, the current drivetrain is not ideal for Autobahn driving.
    It can't maintain its' published top speed for long (I think due to motor heat and/or battery current drain limitations), so Tesla may do some sort of drivetrain upgrade someday targeted towards German driving conditions.

    BTW 1 - That's a pretty awesome PV station these guys have.

    BTW 2 - In the video, the Roadster gets plugged into yet another 400V 3P outlet (must be using one of the phases again). Hint, hint :wink:.
