Japanese Tesla Model S EU/NZ Charger Conversion
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 on Type 2 & over 100kW on Superchargers.
The “US Tesla Plug” is not compatible with any New Zealand chargers without awkward adapters, and only supports single phase charging. 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.
We used to do Navigation conversions as well, but Tesla NZ will do the Navigation conversions themselves now, so we no longer offer those.
Do you have a Model X, Model 3 or Model Y that requires work?
We have converted the Model 3 as well, so get in touch if you have an imported Model 3 that needs a charger conversion and Navigation update. Although we have not started working on an import Tesla Model X, we do expect some of our Model S and Model 3 experience to cross over to the X (and Y when they get here). Please let us know your problem and we will try to offer you a solution.
