Does J1772 adapter come with a new car?

Does J1772 adapter come with a new car?

Got my 3 last week and I need the adapter. Tesla service guy says it doesn't come with a new car and I have to pay $95 for one. !!!????

Yet on Tesla website, it says it comes with all Tesla. WTF?

The J1772 adapter should come with the mobile charger. NEMA 14-50 is no longer included though.

Adapter should have been in the mobile charging bundle

Just picked up my May built AWD 3 on the 5/30 and it had the J-1772. Didn't have the NEMA.

I got both with mine. Took delivery on 3/30/19

Look carefully in the black bag that contains your mobile connector. The j-plug adapter is small and black and may be overlooked.
The bag may be in the basement of your trunk or your frunk.

Mine was built in June 18. It was a display model.
Only had nema. Maybe I should ask Tesla for one.

@renoal,
Yes, that is most likely the problem. The adapters are usually missing from the loaners I've received.
I assume Tesla's intent was to provide it. You definitely should ask them for one.

I wanted the newer J-1773, but was told, though it was not readily available, it would be in stock "soon".

@billlake2000,
J-1773 are the old inductive 'paddle' chargers from the 1990's. While they had some advantages over today's J-1772 conductive 'plug' charging connectors, they are much more complicated and expensive. There are still a few remaining around California but I doubt we'll see them deployed again.

Earl&Nagin, mystery solved!

I think you have to buy the car separately. I paid $60k for my J1772 adapter and got the M3 free with it.

I took delivery on 05/04 and had the NEMA 1450, did NOT have the J-1772. This was tough since my primary charging source is a free ChargePoint plug in by my place of work. $95 adapter that has basically paid itself at this point in free charging.

@mknewman
LOL. Reminds me of the green $30k baseball cap I bought that came with a free John Deere.

We took delivery a couple of weeks ago and no Nema 14-50 but J-1772 adapter came included. Charger failed after first week and had to return for free replacement. We purchased Nema 14-50 outlet for $10 bucks on Amazon.

Got both with mine, and it was an April 27 build, delivery date May 7. I was pleasantly surprised. Coincidentally, today I had my electrician install my NEMA 14-50 outlet in my garage, with 50amp breaker :)

There is no 'UK' shop and the US site says the adapter comes with ALL Tesla vehicles, I didn't get one and need it to charge with my existing Rolec J1772 charger!

If you can't get Tesla to cooperate, J772 adapters are available on eBay for $50.00 - $70.00.

My car was built in July and it came with a J1772 adapter. The J1772 is included.

We recently got our Tesla 3 in Australia and it did not come with J1772 adapter. Has anyone with a Model 3 has this adapter included in Australia?

NCC1701 comes with a new car

My gf picked up her SR+ and they told her it doesn't come with one and tried to sell her one for $95. She declined and we found one in the trunk charging bag. they probably forgot to take it out.
