In Switzerland can I use my existing Tesla (Model X) wall mounted charger to charge a Taycan Criss Turismo or need a new charger?

@Swissbob The Tesla Wall Connector (TWC) is cheaper and if you switch from a Tesla to another EV (like the Taycan) I guess you already have a TWC installed. In this case it doesn't make sense to buy a new wallbox if your fine with the basic functions of the TWC (capable up to 22kW, no PIN/RFID, no logging, no web interface). In other words it's just charging :cool: If you want/need more functions the Porsche Mobile Connector Comfort (PMCC) is a very good option but not the best. There are other 3rd party wallboxeson the market that offer even more than the PMCC. In the end it depends on want you want and what you need.

Thanks @pEAkfrEAk
After 5 years of faithful service my Tesla Wall Connector stopped working. I ordered a new one which has just arrived but haven’t installed it yet. I’ve been using the slow AC charger in the interim which has sufficed due to covid reduced travel. I included the optional Porsche 22KW charger when ordering the CT4, assuming the Porsche wouldn’t run on the Tesla charger and with the experience that fast charging is invaluable, when you really need it. Sounds like I should either just install it and try and remove the Porsche charger from my order, or if this is not possible, I should return it and install the Porsche charger in its place.
