Although I prefer art nouveau, I am perfectly happy with Tesla's minimalist aesthetic. I have no objection to clean, uncluttered design. This plainly extends to the supercharger sites as well as to the cars themselves. However....
I would think the opportunity to defer cost and likely even make money would engender some thought about allowing and promoting advertisements at supercharger sites. Something decorous yet informative. Perhaps an electronic ad board; obviously something weatherized.
Merchants in sc areas are aware that they have, if only for a short while, a highly-desirable as well as captive demographic. Something as simple as "10% off your bill at (?) if you show your Tesla fob" would, I think, be a good business draw. And variations thereof.
Tesla charges for the ad space, the merchants get more business, and Tesla owners get discounts. Something worth exploring, I would think.
