I have a 2013 Model S, now 18 months old. I love the car.
I remain frustrated that I can go south down I-75 with superchargers to spare, north up I-75 with easy supercharger access, and even down I-85 south to Montgomery with no lack of charging opportunities.
But don't try to take your Tesla up the I-85 corridor to the northeast from Atlanta. Raleigh? Washington? New York? Boston? Philadelphia? from Atlanta? No can do. I-85 from Atlanta is a Supercharger wasteland, the next Supercharger from Atlanta up I-85 is on the Northeast side of Charlotte, well out of comfortable range from Atlanta.
I have heard rumors of Superchargers in Commerce, GA, Greenville, SC etc for over two years. But still no infrastructure if you need to travel from Atlanta to the Northeast.
And Atlanta is still one of the top two or three Tesla customer bases in the US.
And so, every time I need to visit my three grandchildren in Raleigh, I am compelled to take my nasty, polluting, expensive Lexus ICE car to travel on the I-85 corridor, leaving my trusty Model S in the garage in Atlanta.
After my 6.2 software upgrade, I entered my son's address in Raleigh in to the nav system. The system directed me to travel 1700 miles, south to Savannah, then up I-95, to have superchargers.
Good Grief! 1700 miles for a 400 miles journey.
Has anyone had success traveling up the I-85 corridor from Atlanta?
