    If I can't install a wall connector at my parking space, is it better to get the UMC cable instead? Or still get the wall connector then try to sell it?

    I chose the UMC cable as that is what I would use/need.

    Choose? They have you a choice between a public charger cable or wall charger?

    Yes. I was given a choice between a wall connector or a UMC cable.

    Is the UMC cable offered in Hong Kong for use with various standard electrical outlets like the European and North America UMCs? Or is it a Type2 to Type2 cable for use with public EV charging stations as used in Europe?

    Odvalso,

    Do you plan to use public EV chargers with your car, or 100% rely on superchargers? If the former you may need a Type2 to Type2 cable.

    Also consider if there are electrical outlets that are not designed for EV charging that you may want to use sometimes, if so you need a Tesla UMC.

    I would discuss this with your Tesla Delivery Specialist.

    Good Luck,

    GSP

    This is correct. The blue type 2 cable is a standard accessory. Then, UMC in exchange for the wall connector.

    I previously spoke to my owner advisor, the salesman met at the show room.
