Just because his name ends in a vowel doesn’t mean he’s Italian 😉

I'm pretty sure he was Croatian. There's a big Tesla museum in Zagreb.

The Belgrade airport is named after him as he identified as a Serb, born in what is now Croatia. He is buried in the Tesla Museum in Belgrade.

However, we will never be able to recharge our electric vehicle benefiting from the maximum power of our meter, since domestic appliances will always play the biggest role (refrigerators, cooking plates, ovens, washing machines, dishwashers, etc.). The best solution - according to the experts - would be that of a 10/16 Kw, three-phased meter: Apart from the dramatic increase in running costs for this type of supply, cars like the Jaguar I-Pace would not profit from it at all. Its designers have chosen a single phase, built-in transformer, which can absorb up to 7 Kw/h all being well ! This particular feature of the Tesla alleged rival sanctions its thunderous failure: in Italy and in Europe there are many 22 Kw charging points (the 50 Kw/h ones are rare birds): while Tesla EVs can fully exploit them, the I-Pace is limited to those absurd 7Kw / h, forcing us to take long stop-overs into account.

In a nutshell, a 7Kw/h recharge translates into an average 30 kilometers per hour. From Milan to Cesenatico, on the Adriatic Sea, you should stop and recharge for at least 4 hours, in order to frighten away the ghost of a tow truck! If we were on board with three other passengers, luggage and decent air conditioning, we would have to stop for the night halfway, probably in a hotel equipped with charging facilities (most probably 22 Kw/h ones, too powerful for a Jaguar I-Pace!)....
Wow that is sad home infrastructure.

In the US typical home has 24kW to 48kW power source and adding a 7 kW load is not a big deal.

Best to have your electrical system evaluated before you buy.
