    Indio Ca. is a better half way point between the coast, LA or the beach cities (OC)and Phoenix. Blythe is 150 miles from Phoenix, which leaves almost 250 more to go. Using A/C and a speed that doesn't get you shot by other drivers i.e. 75 mph (which is the posted limit on the I-10 in Arizona), you could be out of juice if Blythe were the SuperCharge Point. Does anyone really plan on driving there Model S at 55 mph on the Interstate? Not Me!

    You're listing cities. You misunderstand SC. It is not for urban use. It goes BETWEEN cities, to facilitate long hops.

    It would be great to have one in Silverthorne\Dillon in Colorado so going from Denver to any ski resort would have a nice middle stop for any range battery (plus dealing with the significant elevation change with the mountains)

    I drive a couple times a year from SF Bay Area to the Palm Springs area to visit family. I'm pretty sure that I can get from the Tejon Ranch super charger to Palm Springs, but I do worry about going from Palm Springs to Tejon Ranch because there is a big hill to climb towards the end of that route before descending to Tejon Ranch (and I tend to have a lead foot). Looking forward to trying it early next year after my vehicle is delivered, but would love to see a super charger along the route on I-10 to reduce range anxiety.

    I think a location at the Ontario Mills Mall in Ontario, CA would be great. It is right off both the I-10 and I-15 freeways, very convenient location for both East/West and North/South travelers.

    They are already planning some along I-5 between Seattle and San Francisco. I would also like to see them along I-90 heading east from Seattle, preferably all across the country, but at least into the Rockies and then south into Yellowstone.

    Looking at the plan, the first SC on I-90 is in Spokane. A bit far from Seattle to make it on a single charge. So another SC between Ellensburg and Moses Lake would be in order.
  • BrianH.......My locations would be on H401 rest areas near those cities.

    Blythe, CA & Casa Grande, AZ. So I can get to Tucson from CA without sweating it!

    DavidM hit the nail on the head with his list of Interstates.

    I95 alone takes care of 1/3 the population of the US.

    +1 on 101 corridor in CA -- SLO & Santa Barbara

    In NC, I95/US64 interchange. 230 miles from DC, 240 miles from Charlotte and a convenient midpoint in a 280 mile round trip from my house to Raleigh and back.

    Duluth, MN to cover a lot of northern vacation/camping spots. Rockford, IL to cover those who are bypassing Chicago on I39. Milwaukee is really not convenient for most east-west road trips in the area.

    tharasix unless you take the ferry east out of milwaukee.

    stephen;
    proper locations would be as far from those cities on H401 as possible.

    @ Satterlund - I cosign on DC to NYC. Baltimore, Philadelphia Wilmington on The I-95 corridor (NJ Turnpike).

    I wonder if some of the service centers will be part of the supercharger network. Saves on land fees, and makes sure you have a full battery for the trip home.

    Vawlkus, that would make a lot of sense. From what I've heard, the criteria for the placement of service centers and super chargers are very similar: They should ideally be placed in the middle of nowhere, where land is cheap, with a large highway intersection near by, so that they can conveniently serve the metropolitan areas in a relatively large radius (within the range of a 40 kWh Model S).

    (And no, this concept does not mean that you're expected to drive your Model S to the middle of nowhere to have it serviced. The idea is that your Model S is collected, serviced, and delivered again.)

    The I-85 and I-75 corridors would be a help to the Southern States.

    @up north: True, but who would want to sit on a ferry with their S when they could be driving it?

    In all honesty, I didn't even think about the ferry because I have driven Minneapolis to Indy so often, and that gap between Tomah, WI and Champaign, IL in their plan is annoying. I could drive to Tomah, then take state highways down to the Quad Cities, then follow I74, or go directly down to Des Moines then east. Neither way is ideal.
