Im just going to buy whatever Tesla offers since it’s guaranteed to work. Ford will probably hire SunRun again to distribute these and SunRun will call you telling you they need to measure your port first before mailing 🙄

Didn’t Farley promise a free adapter to everyone in the CNBC interview?

I’m still waiting on my charge station from a truck purchase in 2022… they say they are working on it…
My understanding is Farley kind of hinted that was the case but corporate communications back tracked so I don’t think it’s certain that it’s free currently.

In the Twitter spaces announcement Musk (when discussing the adapter) stated "it will not be cost prohibitive... it will be something that is quite affordable... in the hundreds of dollars range".

Watch the 14:10 to 16:10 mark of this video.

In the CNBC video (below) Farley says "We're gonna ship an adapter to everyone that has bought a Ford EV " in this interview. It does not say "ship for free", but I agree one could easily construe it that way. Since I heard Musk's comments first, I figured Farley simply spoke a bit clumsily during a live interview.





So my understanding is Tesla is making the adapters and will be charging the manufacturers. The question is does each manufacturer eat the cost, or pass it along to the customer. Hard to say, but based on the way Ford nickel and dime people on the pitiful compensation for deleted items due to missing supply chain items I would not expect them to be so generous on this particular issue.

Great post - sounds like Farley really misspoke there. I think saying "everyone that has bought" implies free. But we all know how Ford works by now.

Well, here it is, 1 week away from February 2024 and not a peep from Ford or Tesla on this subject. One would think that there would at least some chatter about this but absolutely nothing!

Ford said Supercharger access would occur during the first quarter. There are 66 days left.

And they also announced that BlueCruise 1.3 would be rolling out last September. So don't hold your breath.
