Was thinking about the delays in the SC network (in the US) and how Tesla would not come close to the 205-215 they projected in 2014 (total open in U.S.). However, I was also noticing that there seems to be a real acceleration of SC permits and construction in the last couple of weeks. That got me to wondering if Tesla was trying to get a lot more SC stations open before the deliveries of the Model X begin. Tesla will quickly double or even triple the number of its cars on the road over the next year. The last thing I think they would want is to have any negative reviews or feelings about range or availability of SCs. So, with that in mind, I wonder if it is possible that the delay for the Model X was more about allowing the SC network to fill in some and less about the Model X itself?
