With your help responding to the EV survey sent around in November, I’ve been hard at work splitting electric vehicle chargers into different categories and detecting devices in each category. This week, we are releasing the first EV devices for the Tesla Model S! Most but not all of the Model S cars from the past three years fall in this initial category.
Sense may take up to about a week to find your Model S. If you have a Model S that Sense is not detecting after a week, it might fall into another category that is coming soon. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be releasing device detectors for other categories including other types of Tesla Model S, as well as Chevy Volts, BMW i3s, Nissan Leafs, and other EVs.
Thank you for your awesome support! If you have general feedback about EVs feel free to post here, or if you have specific issues that should be tracked down for your home, please send to customer support - they will be sending me EV-specific issues that they hear about.

P.S. There is a pending update to the Android app that changes around the icons. If Sense finds an electric vehicle but it shows up without a car icon, you should receive an app update in a few days that fixes the icon.
