Tesla debuted its own CCS Combo 1 Adapter back in September 2022, priced at $250 USD.
Fast forward five months later, the worth of this adapter has been slashed by 30% off within the US, right down to $175 USD. In Canada, prices dropped from $325 to $240 CAD (26% drop).
“Expand your fast charging options with the Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter. The adapter offers charging quickens to 250kW and may be used at third-party charging networks,” says Tesla.
Not every Tesla vehicle will support the CCS Combo 1 Adapter, and may have a retrofit, which the corporate says it should start offering in “early 2023”.
You may check whether your vehicle supports the CCS Combo 1 Adapter by going to vehicle settings: Controls > Software > Additional Vehicle Information and also you’ll see if CCS is “enabled” or not.
Tesla says the CCS Combo 1 Adapter will start “shipping inside two weeks of order placement.”
Earlier this week, Tesla announced it might start opening up select Superchargers within the U.S., as a part of an agreement with the White House to impress major highways within the country.
