Full Japanese Tesla Model S EU/NZ Conversion
After this full conversion you will have the ability to enjoy all the onboard vehicle features of a NZ New Tesla. This includes Type 2 Charging, fully functioning NZ Navigation, corrected 88–108 MHz radio frequencies and Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB).
Type 2 conversion information
We offer conversions of Japanese Tesla Model S from the factory fitted "US Tesla Plug" to the “Type 2” plug that is standard on NZ new Tesla Model S and widely supported in New Zealand.
Upgrading to the Type 2 plug is a huge advantage as it unlocks the ability to plug in to any charging station with a Type 2 connector-including Tesla Superchargers & ‘destination chargers’. This means charging speeds up to 22kW AC on Type 2 & over 100kW on DC Superchargers.
The “US Tesla Plug” is not compatible with any New Zealand chargers without awkward adapters. It is not compatible with New Zealand Superchargers at all.
This conversion is carried out using only Genuine Tesla parts appropriate to the generation of Tesla Model S that they are fitted into.
Customers who have had this conversion have been extremely pleased with the final results. They enjoy the long distance rapid charging driving abilities the vehicle was designed for.
This conversion does not guarantee Supercharging which is at Tesla’s discretion & depends on the individual vehicle. To date 100% of our conversions are successfully Supercharging.
MCU Navigation and Radio upgrade
This upgrade package sets the radio frequency to the correct 88–108 MHz bandwidth that is supported in New Zealand without the use of a band expander. Post update, you will also enjoy fully functioning NZ Navigation. On arrival to NZ untouched a Japanese Tesla will be able to follow its current location when data is available, but will not have the ability to set a destination or turn by turn Navigation. After the upgrade you will be able to use the Navigation feature both on and offline.
The update continues to run the standard MCU screen, only genuine Tesla parts are used and all other functions remain the same post update.
Do you have a Model X or Model 3 that requires work?
Although we have not started working on Tesla Model X or 3 we do expect some of our Model S experience to cross over to other Tesla models. Please let us know your problem and we will try to offer you a solution.
