    Get A Free* Tesla Model S With These Miami Luxury Condos

    To boost interest in their Miami luxury condos, Property Markets Group is offering a free Tesla Model S to penthouse buyers. But as always, there’s a catch.

    Yeah, but does the Model S come with the rear cup holders?

    Since they chose to throw in a Tesla, I watched that robotic parking video expecting to see the charging cable to get automatically connected and disconnected, but they blew it and lost my Penthouse order.

    LOL. That's pretty dumb offering robotic parking with a free Model S.

    In Japan there are some robotic parking manufacturers with slow charging capabilities, but this apparently does not seem like it. :)

    It did seem odd to me that they would pick a Tesla for this offer given the lack of charging capabilities in the garage. A slow charging system would seem to make the most sense. The garage could have a number of EV platforms. Only problem is that the garage system would need to know you're pulling in an EV before you pulled in the car, unless they could generate a strong enough field with a device under neath the primary support platform. That would provide more flexibility.

    Or install a supercharger. You could signal via an app that you want your car in 30 minutes. Robots take it to the SC.

    Not as sexy, but doable now - just install an SC near the entrance to the garage. All manual, but it at least solves the problem.

    I know nobody is actually planning to purchase this condo but hey, we are just interested. :)

    To offer slow charging on these types of parking: actually it's not that difficult. Every tray has censors wired, so in addition to existing wires, add one more power cable to the harness, and mark such trays with power cables for EVs. If an EV owner came to the entrance with its own passcode or electronic ID, the parking system could retrieve empty tray with power cable.

    From the article:

    It doesn't specific the capacity, but I would figure you could get whatever Level 2 charger you wanted at these prices.

    We took a look here recently for investment purposes, we could not justify it for its current price.
