Linuxluver:

 

 

 

They also have to locate them where there is electrical infrastructure sufficient to power them. 

The Superchargers in Hamilton have a couple of fairly large - what I assume - are battery storage units...so they can deliver 120kw DC to a Tesla while charging the battery storage at 50kwDC (or 63kw - whatever is locally available). 

They don't install this level of power reticulation by the road side in NZ. That limit the selection for locations........unless you want to spend a huge sum of money building a new high tension power network to random roadside locations.  NZ isn't that well wired. :-) 

 

 


I agreed regarding electrical capacity. The supercharger installation at the base would need around 400 Amps of three phase, the chargers nameplates recommend 500A of breaker capacity to feed it.

 

I think you are misidentifying the boxes at hamilton (I don't see any battery storage).

 

 



The way I see it is that the box on the left of the above photo is some kind of distribution board. The matching boxes at the rear are the two charges. Their nameplates are below:

 

 



I didn't take any photo's, but they have some seriously large cooling fan exhaust at the rear of the units.

Grand opening of these Superchargers is tomorrow from 11am! Looking forward to seeing a model x in the flesh and possibly having a drive of the model S... Hopefully

I can confirm there is at least a model S p100d around in Hamilton  :) (seen it twice)

Went down to the grand opening today. Met some cool people and got some up close inspections of both the model S and X. There were two P100D Xs, two P100D S and a 75D model S.

Opening aside, got to go for a drive in the Grey 2017 P100D with Ludacris mode. Only a short drive and we weren't allowed to drive ourselves. The zero to one hundred Ludacris mode is insane. I've watched plenty of YouTube videos of this launch mode but experiencing first hand was awesome. Like the Superman ride at movie world in the gold coast. Instant torque throwing you back in the seat.

Quickest production car in the world.
