I am getting my EU Model S Sig P85+ delivered on Aug 19 and have already installed a 5-pole 400volt 3-phase 25Amp outlet in my garage (tried to get 32 Amp but that required thicker cable and I could not get into my garage using existing plastic tubes).
I was disappointed to learn today (from my delivery rep) that the 5 pole adapter that comes with the car only allows 16Amp (which gives 11 KwH instead of 17.3 had it been 25A). What is the point of double charges in the car (20 KwH) if the charging cables does not support it ?? The contact itself can handle higher amps so the limit must be the cable!
PS: I know i'm in good shape and can fully recharge my car in less than 8 hours - but still I wonder, is there anyone that can actually use the 20KW option from home?
