Winter 2013, which I'll assume is March of 2014 shows over 100 Supercharging locations. Currently at 20 something, can they really meet their goal ( or at least come close) in the next 5 months?
Can they? Yes. Will they? Nobody knows, maybe not even TM.
Slow and steady wins the race...I'd rather they get them in quicker, but if things take time, so be it...Its still a fine infrastructure they will have in place for the model S, X, and E or whatever comes out...
Amazing plan - by the time Gen 3 comes out, no customer will have to say they don't know where they could charge up in a pinch when out and about...
It just takes time...
I believe negotiations with landowners and permitting takes far longer than the construction. An agreement with a regional or national chain covering multiple locations could put Tesla back on track.
One of the recent installations described exactly such an agreement. Forget which.
Supercharger station under construction in Springfield, Oregon (next to Eugene).
Three others in Oregon and NorCal ready to go but not announced yet too. ;-)
We're going to see an explosion of Superchargers now!
There's 6 in OR, CA, and AZ that should be on-line in a couple weeks.
