Hi folks. Wow, my video about the Model 3 details has taken on a life of it's own and I didn't expect that. I guess that's the power of social media :)

Let me know if you have any ideas of what I can cover in terms of questions and I'll do my best to answer them for you in a burst of short video blogs.

Thanks
Trev

Very helpful videos, Trev, thank you! How do we find your YouTube channel (to subscribe)?

Also, any advice welcome on how best to configure 240V recharging plug in garage. Am getting power put into garage (separate from house) shortly to power new garage doors and want to include set up for our 3/31 reserved M3. (Planning ahead).

Best recommendation is to get at least a NEMA14-50 plug installed. That's 240Volt @ 50AMPs. This way you can use the mobile connector that comes with the car and get level 2 charging. If you opt for Tesla's HPWC (High powered wall connector) which is hard-wired you can keep the mobile connector in the car. The HPWC has the ability to accept 80AMs which is useful for cars with dual chargers like Model S (optional) or a Model X with the optional 72 AMP charger. We don't know what Model 3 will come with but it will be level 2 capable at the very least.

I would suspect they would offer the same single 72AMP charger option as Model X since it's cheaper than the older dual charger system on the Model S. Progress is a wonderful thing ;)

Thanks for the wealth of information and history lesson, it really helps in understanding what went on historically and why verses what could happen with 3.

Like many other companies, Tesla is a creature of habit. If you know their history is helps with predicting what they will do in the future to a certain extent. I have a few other videos of Tesla officials in the Tesla Officials video thread here

Anyone interested in Tesla history should watch them.

Per speaking to my electrician here in CA, it is fairly simple via changing breaker at the panel and installing the plug at wall. NEMA 14-50 is recommended and electrician is very familiar with that.

You can edit your post instead of posting a correction. If you're on a phone tap the "more" link at the bottom to see the edit link.

Thank you, John! A Tesla-certified electrician stopped by yesterday to prep for a free quote and said much the same thing.
