Tesla Motors spokesman Alexis Georgeson told International Business Times this via email:

"We don’t currently make CHAdeMO adapters for Model S.  However, we plan on offering these in the future in markets where there is demand."

This isn't the first time Tesla discussed CHAdeMO and it probably won't be the last.

Does this mean that we won't see Superchargers in Japan?  Would there really be a need?

Tesla now has most of its bases covered with this CHAdeMO adapter adding to the CCS adapter the automaker has been working on.
