Tesla, the popular electric vehicle manufacturer, may be introducing new Wall Connectors soon, according to rumors from China. There are suggestions that the company may offer two new options: a more affordable version with reduced features or a more powerful one. It is still unclear whether Tesla will release one of these options or both simultaneously.
A home charging station is an essential part of owning an electric vehicle, as it provides a convenient and economical way to charge the vehicle. Tesla has been developing Wall Connectors to make owning their cars even more comfortable. The rumored new options could add to the existing line-up of Tesla charging products.
Chris Zheng, who is known for his accurate leaks on Tesla, has shared some interesting information about the potential new Wall Connectors. According to his tweet on March 4th (via Not a Tesla App), the manufacturer may release a more affordable version that can be purchased by a wider range of consumers. This new option is said to have some differences compared to existing chargers, with lower power consumption and a loss of some of the OTA (over-the-air) potential. However, it may be more appealing to Chinese consumers who often opt for more affordable wall connector options offered by other companies.
Somethings about the Tesla Wall Connector.- A more affordable Wall Connector, low price, low power, losing some of the OTA potential that plenty of Tesla's Chinese competitors do. Not fun.- Perhaps the next-gen Connector, with Cybertruck-style styling, 21 kW total power. pic.twitter.com/3bpSA4AEkO— Chris Zheng (@ChrisZheng001) March 4, 2023
While there are no official announcements from Tesla about these rumored Wall Connectors, the speculation has generated a lot of interest among electric vehicle owners. As more people switch to electric vehicles, the need for convenient and affordable charging solutions continues to grow. Tesla has been at the forefront of developing charging technology and it will be exciting to see what the company has in store for its customers in the coming months.
