They should have contracted the wecasting out - otherwise it would be difficult.

Probably - but unlike the hush-hush meeting with investors, this will be a press event.

Apparently (as discussed in the Tesla forum), Signature reservation holders were invited. But as someone has already pointed out, it will be webcast live. I wonder if they'll have enough capacity though.


Perhaps the Coke Bros are mounting their D.O.S. offensive as we speak? :lol:

I think they'll have plenty of streaming capacity to accomadate people. I'll test it myself at 8pm tonight when I watch the event stream! Exciting stuff!

We'll see soon. ChaDEMO compatibility seems unlikely to me. I expect the same charging interface as the Model S, which goes to 20 kW (80 Miles Per Hour of Charging - MPHC) from 240V, or 14 kW (56 MPHC) from a high power 240V J1772, and Tesla proprietary DC fast charger at 90 kW (360 MPHC).

Me too, I linked from the Tesla Facebook page and I have a Model X screen on the Tesla site, but no link to the event. Then I clicked Refresh and got an hour glass. Oh well, there's our answer as to bandwidth. :lol:
