Per Tesla - Beginning next week, new Tesla vehicles will no longer include a 14-50 adapter as standard equipment with the vehicle. A NEMA 5-15 adapter will continue to be included with the Mobile Connector as a backup for customers who take delivery prior to installation. The 14-50 will be moved to an ‘optional’ adapter in the same way we see dryer outlets (10-30, 14-30) and various other 240 volt plugs as more of a backup option for charging a Tesla vehicle. Why we’re doing this: The NEMA 14-50 outlet is a holdover from the original 2008 Tesla Roadster, when RV parks were the only reliable means of charging outside of major cities. With the Supercharger and Destination Charging networks now covering the vast majority of travel needs, very few customers continue to rely on this infrastructure. As more and more of our customers choose to install a Wall Connector, we’ve decided to recommend the Wall Connector for all newly installed infrastructure and remove the adapter from new vehicles. Additionally, NEC 2017 introduces a GFCI requirement for outlets installed for electric vehicle charging. This requirement increases the cost of installations and can lead to false trips, creating a poor customer experience and increased service visits. With built in ground fault protection, the Wall Connector can utilize a standard circuit breaker and is the more reliable home charging solution.
