Since there seems to be some new additions to the supercharger network coming online, and some from consumer demand. Thought I'd start a thread for those that think a couple planned SC's along I-81 would be helpful to them. Find the lack of SC planned on this route as a big oversight. I am thinking that it would only take two SC's in VA to make the road travelable. Wytheville and Staunton seem to be the best choices, both sit at major highway intersections (I-77 and I-64). This would enable travel from DC and the northeast into Tennessee, West Virginia and Western North Carolina possible. It also enables travel south along I-77 possible. This is a major route to the south for Ohio, Western PA and West Virginia. As it stands now, the Charleston WV SC will not support travel to any of the SC's down I-77, especially over the severe terrain along the West Virginia Turnpike. Likewise, one cannot get from Charleston to the SC planned in Charlottesville along I-64 as planned.
If you are an owner, or interested in these Superchargers for future ownership, send a +1. I know that Tesla reads the forum, maybe this will help gauge some interest for them.
