A rare Tesla Model 3 was spotted in Germany this week. It’s an interesting
sighting for a few different reasons.

Of course, Model 3 vehicles are rare anywhere these days, but especially so
in Europe since the new electric car is not expected to enter any European
market until the end of next year.

Yet, the first Model 3 in Europe [
https://electrek.co/2017/09/08/first-tesla-model-3-spotted-in-europe-a-year-ahead-of-official-launch/
] was spotted in the Netherlands in September. It appeared to be operated by
Tesla.

Now another Model 3, apparently not the same one that was spotted a few
months ago, was spotted in Germany this week.

The vehicle, which appears to have plates registered in Munich, was spotted
at several locations around Germany, including near Ingolstadt:

When a Tesla vehicle ends up in Europe before its official launch, it has so
far been mostly about German competitors acquiring the car in order to
reverse-engineer it or benchmark it.

For example, Audi bought an early Model X to bring to Europe ahead of the
European launch.

Interestingly, they didn’t know that European Tesla vehicles don’t have the
same plugs as North American vehicles, which led to them being hilariously
stuck at a Supercharger station in Germany [
https://electrek.co/2016/04/19/audi-charge-tesla-model-x-reverse-engineering/
].

But the vehicle is apparently not in the hands of German automakers, which
leads us to another reason why this sighting is interesting.

Tesla doesn’t make the European version of the Model 3 yet, but it is not
expected to have the same plug as the North American version, like Tesla’s
other vehicles. Therefore, it shouldn’t be able to charge or Supercharge
directly on European charge points.

Yet, a member of the German Tesla forum [
http://tff-forum.de/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=11112&start=3160
] spotted the same Model 3 at the Braak Supercharger and that the vehicle
was actually Supercharging. We were able to confirm the sighting with the
only picture that they allowed him to take of the encounter – at least
confirming that the encounter actually happened.

He said that the Model 3 was being driven by American Tesla employees and
that they had a special adapter in order to charge at European Superchargers
with a standard Tesla American plug.

It would be the first reported use of such a Mennekes Type 2 to Tesla plug
adapter.

If you are in the region, be on the lookout and maybe you will have the
chance to catch a glimpse of Model 3 almost a full year before its official
launch in Europe.
