Yesterday I picked up my Pearl White 60 at the new distribution center in Springfield, NJ. Good thing, because it was raining quite hard. It was a great experience. My DS, Nate, did a terrific job during a full 2 hour introduction to this amazing vehicle.
It is beyond description all the thrills you get!
After getting her home around 3 pm, we plugged in to charge up before going out to dinner.
A few minutes later we went back out to the car to get something and noticed the charger had turned red and stopped charging.
We had a new NEMA 14-50 outlet installed last week and the vehicle was plugged into that. It wouldn't charge. We tried a 110v outlet and still could not get the charger to work and turn green. The vehicle then turned itself off. Black monitor.
We called road service and they agreed it sounded like a bad charger.
Fortunately we still had 100 miles of range left so we went back to Springfield to exchange this cable for a working one. I had read about this issue of bad charging cables on the forum several weeks ago. I got stuck with one of them, but fortunately it was an easy fix.(And fun to get to drive again). NO GAS!
Springfield has about 50 Teslas sitting in the lot for delivery. Horseless Carriage trailer pulled in to deliver more while we were there.
They were prepping and delivering all day. Hope you get one soon.
