Tesla’s Jerome Guillen Promises January Arrival Of Model S CHAdeMO Adapter
The Tesla Model S to CHAdeMO adapter will go on sale this month, promises Jerome Guillen, Tesla’s vice-president of worldwide sales and service.
That promise was made by Guillen at the opening of Tesla’s store in Montreal last month and confirmed again just days ago at the 2015 NAIAS.
Tesla has quietly been shipping the CHAdeMO adapter out to beta testers for quite awhile now, but within the next few days or couple of weeks, all Model S owners will be able to order the CHAdeMO adapter directly from Tesla’s store for $450.
The Downside To CHAdeMO Adapter Availability?
As more and more Model S owners get the CHAdeMO adapter, lines will become longer at some of the already-overcrowded CHAdeMO chargers.
More quick chargers will be required at some locations where Nissan LEAF owners report waiting in lines 4-5 cars deep for a quick charge.
