Posted the short version elsewhere but here goes: in SoCal, took delivery of a Model AWD and it came with the USB-C wireless charger. Says it was manufactured in Fremont, VIN is 711xxx.

(For another thread, the touchless delivery was 45 minutes of horrendous bad and making me wrong, then 10 minutes of checklist checking while angry, and now 48 hours of owner bliss.)

A friend ordered a long range AWD on 6/6/20.

She received a text text on 6/12/20 that delivery is ready to be scheduled.

Took delivery on 6/14/20 VIN 735XXX and it had usb-c ports in rear, and a charging pad.

I picked up my Model 3 today. My advisor said it was built on 6/5. It came with USB C and the wireless charger.
our 2yr old plug-in minivan came w/ wirwless charging (and ventilated / cooled seats - which Tesla did away with shortly after we ordered grey leather in our Model S - which of course, gray leather was done away with also) . Didn't know old Tech is now a big deal.

Can someone check if my Model 3 will have the new plugs and chargers?

711xxx
I took delivery of my AWD M3 yesterday. Has the wireless charging and usb c plugs.
VIN is 711xxx. Ordered 6/8, got the ready text 6/10, took delivery 6/13.

delivery was great, went through my checklist. Besides some minor alignment issues, I didn’t really think or care to complain.

Got my Model 3 Performance on Friday. Came with USB C wireless charger + USB A port next to it.

Everything was flawless on the car except for a panel on the rear sitting a bit higher and a light scratch on the steering wheel.

The trunk carpet cover of my Model 3 (2018/10) is made of a single piece.

But I noticed this Model 3 having two pieces, where the rear sub-trunk and the liner behind the rear seat are independent.

- Does any one noticed this difference, and when did it occurred?

The $125 wireless charger part Tesla is selling sends 5 watts to each dock.
That is fairly useless to me, and most certainly not worth $125. Is the OEM any better ?

Does anyone know what max power these usb-c ports provide? Easiest way to measure is probably plugging in a Mac using the native apple power cord and running "pmset -g ac" on command line

Model Y is 9v * 3A = 27W. Presumably the new Model 3 is the same.

Thanks! Odd that it does not use 12V/3A max since that would not have required any step-down conversion from 12V power on max.

Most automotive 12V systems are actually 12.7V - 13.2V (probably too high for 12V USB-PD) and are not nearly stable enough to directly use as a USB-PD output. It is possible that Tesla is different, but I doubt it.

So to get a nice clean 12V for USB-PD, you are going to need a 12V power supply. And most 12V power supplies require more than 12.7V input. To get a quality 12V output, you would have to boost the 12.7V up to 16V, and and then drop it back down to 12V. Much easier to just use a 9V power supply which will gladly accept 12.7V as input.
