    Hi,

    Does anyone know if the connector type for the Model S in the UK has been confirmed yet. J1772 or something else?

    The reason I want to know now is that I am planning on taking advantage of one of the free home charger install offers going at the moment. I am keen to get a charger with a tethered lead so its just a case of driving up and plugging in rather than getting a cable out of the car. To do this I need to be sure I have the right connector.

    Thx
    Alan

    It has been announced that the Model S in Europe (and the UK) is a "Type 2" connector, aka "Mennekes" connector.

    Here's a photo of it (a suspected prototype version, but still)
