It turns out that, in a pinch, a Honda EU6500iS generator can charge a Tesla Model S.

"It's typically very hard to get the Model S to charge from a portable generator (they don't produce clean enough power) so this was mostly to prove you can do it with this particular model if you absolutely needed to."

Honda lists the EU6500iS with an MSRP of $4,499.95
