As soon as my wife has been persuaded, I am going to order a Tesla S 85kwh. I will get there soon.
However, I can not quite figure out the charging options and what to buy.
Basically I want to be able to charge the 85Kw battery in full in about 10 hours overnight. I also want to top off during the day as I have a large solar panel installation.
I have a standard Danish 220V installation in my garage. When I testdrove the Tesla, the rep said I could charge from this outlet. However this article http://b.bilen.dk/biltests/2013/07/i-elbil-paa-langfart/ says I can not charge from the standard 220V outlet. I can install 380V kraft or whatever else is needed.
So my questions are:
1. Can you charge from a standard Danish 220V outlet, yes or no. This could be ideal when visiting a friend.
2. If yes, at how many kwh/hour or how many km/hours?
3. I can install any kind of "ingoing" power in my garage. Do I need to buy anything special from Tesla for the car? the HPWC or double chargers or whatever in order to charge the battery in full in about 10 hours?
Has anybody with knowledge of Danish gas prices, import taxes, car depreciation etc made a spreadsheet that calculates the cost of driving a Tesla compared to a regular ICE ? (Yes, I need a little more ammo for the wife discussion...)
