At first i want to congratulate everybody in The Netherlands with their Model S, because we waited so long for it to arrive in our country.
I got mine this week, after over 2 years of waiting.
THE car is even netter thsn i expected and i am verry happy with it.
However, i must sent à warming to all of you who are expecting your model 's in the near future
Tesla dilivers the car with a standard loading cable.
You only can plug that cable in a normal outlet.
This means that you are charging your battery with maximum 15 kilometers per hour!!!!!
So if you want to add 300 kilometers range to THE battery it Will take 20 hours.
You have to install à special loading station at your home or office, with a so called Mennekesstekker, to charge with 11 kWh.
Using the fastcharging network ,44 kWh,Is not yet, possible, because tesla Will not delivery the nessesary adapter until 2014.
Futher you have to realise that it will take about 5 to 6 weeks before the 11kwh loading point is installed.
In short: if you dont order your 11 kwh loading station 6 weeks before delivery of your model 's, your in trouble.
I am ashemed to tell you i experienced that.
I wanted to share my discomfort with you ,, so you can be netter prepared then i was.
THE car i greater and i am Sire that the charging issue in the neatherlands Will soon be solved.
