Tesla Model 3 in Europe with CCS

Recommended Posts

Description:  In Europe, the Tesla Model 3 will have a CCS adapter instead of the Type 2 which is used in Model S and Model X. So in the planer it should be possible to select CCS as power adapter

Use Case: Tesla Model 3 in Europe will be delivered with CCS adapter

Many thanks!

It is indeed possible to select CCS as a power adapter for all Teslas now (Settings > More Settings > CCS), though it is not selected by default.

Sorry, my request was not clear enough.

It's correct that it's possible to select CCS in the Settings, but I miss it in the 'Slow Charger Filters'

Ah, I see.  I suppose we ought to include the fast chargers on that display as well, but would need to differentiate, as we won't include the slow (destination) chargers in automatic planning.

Is there a way to default the Fast Chargers settings to CCS (as seen in the screenshot above) for Model 3 in Europe? Or remember the last setting used?

I'm planning on buying a Model 3 but have not decided which version yet. So I'm playing with different versions and routes to find out what I need. But each time I switch to a different version the Fast Chargers setting gets reset to “Supercharger” without CCS.

Defaulting the settings to Tesla CCS instead of Supercharger would also benefit new users who do not know that there's a setting they have to change in order to get accurate results (as long as not all superchargers have been converted to CCS).

Each time you do a plan your settings are saved.  On my to-do list is to make this more apparent to you as a user, perhaps by offering a "save settings" button.

Our eventual goal is to remove the "Tesla CCS" setting entirely, since it's only a stopgap while Tesla rolls out CCS to all superchargers.

Concerning the currently possible selection Tesla CCS. I still think it necessary for the following reasons:
- Tesla CCS have a faster charging speed than most normal CCS, especially with the upcoming V3 Superchargers as well as with the software update of the V2 Supercharger
- There are also Tesla Model 3 drivers who can charge them over a certain amount of time or a certain amount of power for free

To clarify - Our intention is to leave them available for planning, but since they're just the new style of Supercharger plug, selecting "Supercharger" would be the same as selecting Tesla CCS, so no reason to have two buttons with the same function once Tesla CCS is available at every supercharger.

Love ABRP but would like to know how to save a route so that I can find it again the next time I use the program. Yes, it saves but then if I shut down my computer or iPad and then go back to look for the route, it says I have no saved plans. Is there a logon that can identify me with my plans?

Yes indeed! Show More Settings > Synchronize Settings > ABRP Login, this will save your settings and plans across multiple devices.

Yes, the settings are saved (which is great). But two settings will be reset each time you change the car: Fast Chargers and Max Speed. And also Reference Consumption but that is to be expected. 😉 

So say I plan a route for the Model 3 LR RWD with CCS and Tesla-CCS selected and then I want to plan the same route with the Model 3 MR RWD for comparison. After I changed the car I now have to select CCS and Tesla-CCS again.

One possible way to implement this: when changing the car select all Fast Charger options that have been selected and which the new car also supports in addition to the defaults of the new car.

That's good feedback, I'll think about a good way to implement.  What would you think about a "saved cars" option, kind of like "saved plans"?

Thanks. Got it. Wish the sign in for ABRP was up at the top. Oh well, I can manage for now.

It's not what I thought of in the first place but it should work. That way it might be even more useful for other people since my needs are probably a bit specific at the moment.

Actually now that I think about it a „saved cars“ option opens up many new possibilities. Yes, I think I'm going to like it. :)

Yeah, that's where it ought to be, or somewhere more obviously accessible anyway.  I'll get to that soon.

There's probably merit in also remembering charger selections where applicable.  The complicated part is determining "where applicable" applies.  For example, we could have the Model 3 remember CCS, but then switching from a CCS car in North America to the Model 3 would return an odd result, since there is no CCS adapter for Model 3 yet in NA.

Yeah, I know what you are talking about. You would need to somehow differentiate between US and EU Model 3’s, either by duplicating each of the already many Model 3 variants or by some form of geolocation detection which has its own problems.
