Charging unit in The US and Europe

I would like to know whether the supercharging plugs in US and Norway are different. I was thinking of importing a Tesla from the US. Could anyone from Tesla Motors answer me if it is possible to use a Tesla's supercharger in Norway to charge a Tesla bought in the US.
Regards Mathew

They are the same.

Wrong. They are completely different. The European Teslas use a Mennekes connector.


Check post number 19 in this thread for photographic proof:


So if we import a Tesla from the US to Norway we wont be able to use the superchargers here? How about for model X?

@Mathewsa - No you will not. Unless they make an adapter. Which I think is unlikely.

Thanks Brian! I tried doing that but couldn't make it work. I was trying on a first gen iPad though. ;-)


Here's the US version for comparison:

Sorry. On the iPhone now and can't seem to link a photo directly. Maybe Brian would be so kind as to post directly again for us. ;-)

Thanks Brian!

Yup. I've saved the HTML code now but can't seem to be able to copy and paste the URL using my iPhone or iPad.


It's not copy-paste, exactly. Rt-click and select "Copy image location", and use that in the HTML.

Right click on an iPhone or iPad? You might have to show me that in person. ;-)

Context menu. If you can manage it.
