Tesla no longer including mobile connectors with its new vehicles

Tesla said it will no longer include its mobile connector with the new car purchases. It will instead sell the Gen 2 (level 1) bundle separately.

The update was first spotted by Twitter user Tesla_Adri. According to Twitter user Tesla_Adri, Tesla revised their support website to explain that the mobile connection bundle, which was previously described as an accessory that “comes with vehicle,” no longer comes with the car.

Musk acknowledged in response to a user’s reaction to the issue, confirming that the business will no longer provide the Gen 2 mobile connector with new car orders. Tesla CEO Elon Musk in a Tweet explained, “Usage statistics were super low, so seemed wasteful,” adding that Tesla “will be including more plug adapters with the mobile connector kit” in the future.

The attachment, which is presently priced at $275 on its website, allows you to connect your Tesla to a wall outlet and receive around two to three miles of range after an hour of charging.

Later, Musk tweeted that Tesla will lower the price of the mobile adapter to $200 and make it easy to buy it with a new car. He also made the point that you don’t need an adapter to charge your Tesla at one of the company’s Superchargers or with a Tesla Wall Connector installed in your house. The charging package is currently listed as out of stock on the Tesla website.

According to Electrek, this isn’t the first time Tesla has removed a charging wire. Previously, every new automobile came with both Level 1 and Level 2 connections, however, the latter adaptor was eventually dropped. Electrek further points out that the Kia EV6 does not come with a Level 1 or Level 2 charging cable.
