pretty cool!

If you average about 5 per station that is about 20 supercharger stations...

justineet | July 3, 2013

still lot more to go...

Great news!! I hope a supercharger station comes online soon between LA and San Diego (rumored to be near San Juan Capistrano). I need to make make that roundtrip drive in a single day twice this month which will be tough to do via standard charging.

To clarify...the 101 as the the superchargers off the 101 freeway in LA? or 101 total chargers? If so, then I'll defer to justineet's calculations.

This is great. Thanks Tesla! Keep it up :)

Now, when anyone in a 60 does the Gilroy to Atascadero route (going both ways), please post results of range, hills, elevation, etc. I'm guessing I'll be fine but want to know how the 141miles is.

Thank you!

If you MS 60 drivers are concerned, you can grab a few electrons at the 70 amp High Power Level 2 charger at the Rabobank in Salinas to add some safety margin.
