WIll TEsla be adding I25 Superchargers as promised?

I have heard that Tesla may not be building I25 Super chargers. I have contacted the company but have not received a response. Right if you have to go through Kansas if you want to drive to Albuquerque. When I bought the car I25 super chargers were going to be built.

At the end of 2016 or early in 2017 there will be more than 400 Supercharger stations in North America (according to the 2016 Supercharger map). Many of the new ones will be realised in Q4 2016.

You "HEARD", that is a great source of information.

Current NA count is 209. WTH are you talking about? Did you write 125 or I-25?

I think "Trinidad, CO" and "Las Vegas, NM" are planned for I-25. Sounds like Trinidad has been removed from the "coming soon" map because of some permitting issues, but is still planned for this year.

There was no "promise." There were no "superchargers that were going to be built."

There was only a rough, ever-changing plan of what Tesla hoped to do. Specifically:

"The map above is a representation of the corridors we plan to enable and the timing thereof. Exact locations and timing may vary."

There are also rapid periods of supercharger installations interspersed with slow periods, so no instantaneous snapshot of build rates can provide useful predictions for what will happen months or years down the road.

Based on other writings in this forum, many slow-downs in the process are due to siting or permitting issues. So if there is a location you'd like to see get a supercharger, you may be able to speed up the process by talking to local governments and businesses and getting them on-board to set up a dialog with Tesla.

Or if not then, "soon"!
Meaning that we don't have a clue about when the number of SCs in North America will reach 400.

EQC;
Tesla has noted that it particularly appreciates contact info for site owners prepared to host the SC. It saves much time and money!
