Just noticing that there hasn't been any new supercharging locations announced for about 4 months now.
I thought Tesla was supposed to have around 100 stations in place across the USA in 12 months?
If they are to reach this goal they need to be adding roughly 8 supercharging locations every month.
Not sure what the hold up is? I figured they would have covered the entire eastern seaboard by June of this year.
At only $250,000 per station its just $25 million for the 100 station network. Not a great deal of money considering that they are spending $400 million per year on R&D, new stores, etc.
At this point I think the supercharging network is more important than new stores. Seems to me that most of the world's major cities are already covered.
Anyway...hope to see more supercharging stations soon!
