Where would you like to see Tesla set up Super Chargers?

I have a couple long drives I undertake and came up with a list that would be convenient for me. Somehow I think Tesla will take a wider array of people into account :)

Here is where I would like to see them (for my personal convenience of course :) )
North Bay, ON
Barrie, ON
Stratford, ON
Niagara, Falls, ON
Erie, PA
Morgantown, WV
Beckley, WV
Charlotte or Statesville, NC

I actually anticipate Tesla will concentrate their super chargers in/near their hottest U.S. markets (at least initially), but I can dream about them being in more out of the way places.

Where would they suit you best?

I'd also like to see some superchargers along CA highway 395 east of the Sierras. South Lake Tahoe and Yosemite are some other places. Maybe Monterey or Carmel for those trips through Big Sur. While 150 mile intervals is good I think it also makes sense to place them in tourism spots where people may be staying at a hotel.

150 miles. It would take at least 50% more to get 75 mile spacing.

If you're staying overnight at a hotel you don't need a supercharger. We need hotels to put in Level 2 chargers. There's already a level 2 charger in Yosemite Valley.

@BrianH - 75mi in each direction out of major cities, which is 150mi spacing. Ie, driving up 75N through Atlanta, you could charge at Macon and then regardless of which interstate you took out you would hit another Supercharger at about 150mi from the last one.

@gregv64 - yes, the hotel I am staying at next week has two L2 chargers. I could probably make do without (it is 110mi away), but it means I don't have to worry about it at all.

We drive New Jersey to New Hampshire frequently, 330 miles, along route 684,84,Mass Pike (90), 495,3. Somewhere along 84 north of Hartford CT south of Sturbridge MA would be perfect.
The Supercharger in Milford CT is along route 95, and most of us who live on the east coast would rather have our teeth drilled then sit in that parking lot of a highway on the way north.

San Diego

Definitely need the Chicago-NY corridor taken care of. This links Clevland-Pittsburg- and Philly as well.

There are 12 million people in the Texas triangle. We need superchargers here!

Along all interstates at aproximately 150 mile intervals. Also at major rest stops. All of the Superchargers should be near easy on-off access to the freeway.

Along Route 13 or 113 from Delaware to Virginia. This is a major route from NY to the Outer Banks.

Garden State Parkway in New Jersey.

Dunno if already suggested.
I live in NC.
I would love to see superchargers along highway 40, running east/west. Raleigh to Asheville.
Also, would love to see them running along highway 70, to the coast: Raleigh to Atlantic Beach.

@MrB +1
Somewhere on 101 in California between Gilroy and Santa Barbara, say Paso Robles, King City or San Louis Obispo.

San Luis Obisbo and Camarillo will get you to Hawthorne.

Get us from LA/Barstow to Phoenix please - Telsa to pick the spot. And could use something between LA & San Diego.

Vail Co or Glenwood Springs CO, Grand Junction Co, Green River Ut, Ritchfield Ut, St. George UT. (Then we can make it from Denver to Las Vegas)

Who dat? :D

How about Tesla places one in every town where a Model S resides? Consider it customer appreciation!

San Diego

Reading the thread, i like:
1. San Diego (Carlsbad?)
2. The triangle in Texas
3. A site west of Denver so people can ski/charge/and return home (Dillon?)
4. DC (I- 95) for points North and South
5. Coastal Cal--Paso Robles/SLO

Instead of someplace useful to long-distance travellers? City A & City B, 300 miles apart. 2 SCs, no travel between A & B. OR 1 SC halfway between, easy travel. You choose.

Truckee, CA.

Lots of Teslas on the roads here in Northern CA. Lots of Tesla owners also fit the demographic that likes to head up to the mountains at Lake Tahoe. Drop a Supercharger in Truckee and one in Tahoe City so that we can leave our ICE beasts in the garage and head to the mountains in style.

At all Indian reservations w/24x7 casinos
In particular, Warm Springs Oregon, good spot between Portland and Bend and Klamath Falls.

The marketing plan should include a multi-outlet Supercharger in the parking lot of every mall where they've opend a Tesla retail store. The parking lot should have a big TESLA sign and a smaller sign informing people that the charging station is solar powered and free for Tesla owners. Tesla owners should feel confident that if they know where a Tesla store is, they'll find a charger there.
I personally would also like to see Tesla license their proprietery plugs so that every gas station or strip mall can install an outlet. Why do we have to wait for Tesla to install a charger? Let's go open architecture.
Charges should be in every rest station on Rte 95 (and whatever is the equivalent on the west coast).
They need to think of the chargers as part of the marketing plan. Put them where your customers (or potential customers) are and where they're likely to travel to, i.e., major matropolitan areas, their tony suburbs and major vacation destinations, like Cape Cod, Hamptons, Outer Banks, Orlando, etc.
I'd like to see at least a 240v outlet in every McDonalds, too. I realize that lots of Tesla owners would rather walk than be seen pulling into Mickie Dee's but the point is to make charging a Tesla as easy as charing an iPhone. No more range anxiety = tipping point for EVs

Madison, WI - this would allow driving between Minneapolis/St Paul/Rochester and Chicago (nearest Tesla service center)

The SC network is indeed a marketing push. It is intended to remove a major barrier to acceptance/purchase. Once the basic n/w is in place, the kinds of "side arrangements" described here make sense.

I-81 and also at my restaurant in Ashburn, VA

On the TransCanada highway, particularly from Vancouver to Calgary.

Along I90 or I80 from coast to coast. This would give the best access for those who would like to be able to travel across country. Commercial charge stations would give access to either of these corridors until more SuperChargers come on line.

Ontario Canada

Half way between Toronto and Montreal on Hwy 401
Half way between Toronto and Detroit on Hwy 401
Hwy 401 east of Windsor
Hwy 11 at the South End of Gravenhurst


Interstate Hwy 75 every 150 miles from Detroit to Sourthern Florida

Amarillo and Shreveport MUST for lower east west travel
