Charging at Tesla stations - Model 3 is changing the landscape

Some common sense at last? Maybe?

Tesla announced last month that, in anticipation of launch of Model 3, it will be gradually modifying its destination chargers to take conventional type 2 Mennekes plugs in Australia (& Europe). However superchargers will remain incompatible for non-Tesla EVs.

Model 3 is fitted with type 2 plug, and models S & X are to be provided with type 2 adapters to use the modified type 2 Tesla chargers.

Some caveats on this so please read attached. Make sure you read the notes at end where Tesla comments on the article.

Interesting 🤔?

Having trouble posting links so here is more info. My previous post referred to Mennekes plugs, but should have identified them as CCS plugs for new model 3. Tesla Australia has announced it will upgrade its Supercharger network with Combined Charging System (CCS) plugs, in order to support the upcoming Model 3 sedan (there is a further report that this Tesla statement has disappeared).
“While Tesla owners already have access to the largest, most convenient and reliable charging solutions available between home charging, Supercharging and Destination Charging, we want to expand their ability to charge at third party fast chargers," a Tesla spokesperson said in a statement.
“In advance of Model 3 rollout in Australia and New Zealand, we will be retrofitting our existing Superchargers with dual charge cables to enable Model 3, which will come with a CCS charge port, to use the Tesla Supercharger network."
“Model S and Model X customers will continue to have full access to the network and a CCS adapter will soon be available to purchase, if desired," the spokesperson added

If the Model 3 is as `mass market` as they claim, it would be daft to not have it's charger compatible with the vast majority of fast chargers already out there in `real world` land. Of course it will be noted that the CCS charger will be at optional extra cost to the customer...

How very Tesla-typical... but I s'pose at least it's `optional-optional`, rather than rest of the `optional-but-not-really` of the most of the Model 3 addons...

What's the betting it's added to ALL the cars and the cost for this `option` is buried in the purchasing documents?

I was wondering, would this adapter enable non-Tesla owners to use Tesla super chargers?

NOTHING will enable Tesla super chargers to be used by the great unwashed...
