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
