Tesla has today unveiled a brand-new home charger compatible with all electric vehicles in North America.
Tellingly, the new Wall Connector features a J1772 coupling, meaning all non-Tesla EVs can use it. Available with a 7.3-metre cable, the new Wall Connector provides up to 9.6 kW (40 amp) power output per vehicle, and can be calibrated for both indoor and outdoor installation.
This marks the first time that Tesla has introduced a charger available for use by all electric vehicles. Ironically, the (essentially) reworked version of Tesla’s Gen 2 home charger means Tesla’s own models require a $415 adaptor to use the new Wall Connector “for the most seamless home charging experience.”
This new charger follows news of the Non-Tesla Supercharger pilot program that was recently introduced in The Netherlands. The 10 Supercharger locations nationwide are step one of a plan to take the program international.
