The 26 of October they started construction. Today it is like the photo shows, taken yesterday. Yours truly managed to follow the construction process not from the start but close enough. This find was a great joint effort from lots of people with a great deal of help from UVE, the Electric Vehicle Users Association.
A 8 de Maio de 2016 juntámos 22 Teslas para pedirmos um Service Center para Portugal. O Elon Musk disse OK passados 4 dias. Esse dia da abertura do Service Center está a chegar, teremos finalmente um Service Center próprio da Tesla em Portugal. Queremos agradecer e convidá-lo a vir cá para a inauguração e abertura do Service Center. A mesma equipa do vídeo original está a preparar uma nova mensagem e precisamos de juntar o maior número possível de Teslas. Domingo dia 22 de Outubro às 15:30 h precisamos de todos neste ponto de encontro com coordenadas 38.794953, -9.092149 https://goo.gl/CtVEvp
Someone just asked for the pinout of the 1phase to 3phase converter, useful when charging in places where the conventional plug is the only option. So here it is: very simple to do, just follow the pinout taking into account that Brown is L1 phase and Blue is Neutral. On the Schuko side it doesn’t matter provided your charger is OK with it either way. If your charger, like the Tesla UMC, is sensitive to the L1 being in the right place just unplug the schuko and plug it again turning it 180°, easy. The pictures follow next.
@Bordeaux supercharger, talking to a UK couple, the wife tells me:
– During a Tesla meeting in London, some women, several men, I told the European Tesla guy: we loose the husband before the buy, during the buy and after the buy, you should do something to involve the wifes!
I know at least another wife that agrees 100% with this statement, mine 😉 😉

PoD – Aveiras’ PCR – Santarém PCR – Abrantes PCR – Serra Shopping Covilhã – Parador de Salamanca Dc – Tordesillas Sc (still off) – Burgos Sc – Bayonne Sc – Biarritz, 989.7 km. A long leg, a leg alone, done. Thanks EM for the Supercharger network. Spain is almost a pain…
Driving with family can be fun. Driving with family in the Model S can be funnier. Or slower. Specially if your wife stresses on the charge % and every single stop is the time to wait for a battery topped…
Stress? What stress?! No stress when the goal is the magic number 9, followed by a zero and the symbol %: 90%.
