    Supercharger - Asheville, NC (Whole Foods)

    Asheville is also roughly at the middle of the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC and gets a lot of traffic from that during peak seasons.

    Supercharger - Pigeon Forge, TN

    Great update! Thanks! Looks like the destination chargers by REI are going to become less useful (for a good reason, not a bad one)! Looks like a coffee shop, a candy shop, and a distillery in the same shopping center as the only immediate food options. A deli, a local pizza place, a Honeybaked...

    Looks like price increased 500 just now.

    That's not inflation. That's a screwed up short-term market that was disrupted by a pandemic. Prices will eventually reset because the global auto industry is fiercely competitive. Suppliers will ramp up production, auto manufacturers will ramp their production back up, etc. I will almost...

    Looks like price increased 500 just now.

    I definitely don't like this trend! I have an 11-year old Audi Q5 (~115k miles) that I was considering replacing at some point in 2020-2021. With full-time telework during covid, I have easily made it through 2020. I've been thinking maybe I would pull the trigger on a Model Y this summer...

    Supercharger - Pigeon Forge, TN

    FWIW, the REI in Pigeon Forge has 6 destination chargers that are free and seem to have consistent charging rates. Lots of positive reviews on Plugshare just this week with 10-11kw. Still not as good as a supercharger, but may be better for you than having to drive out to the Knoxville one just...

    Supercharger - Greenville, AL

    Hopefully there will also be some relief provided to the I85 and I65 routes once the new sites in Columbus and Dothan are both online (Columbus is already online, but Dothan will make a bigger impact, IMO). That will pull some of the traffic heading to the panhandle to the east.

    Supercharger - Pigeon Forge, TN

    Yeah, I doubt it will be built quite that soon. I'm curious which direction you're coming from and heading toward? Always along 75 or 40? If on 40, it looks like a Pilot Travel Center near Waynesville is getting a DC fast charger (CCS and Chademo) soon. That could be a nice backup option for...

    Supercharger - Pigeon Forge, TN

    As an Atlanta-area resident who regularly visits GSMNP, I am very happy to see a new "coming soon" supercharger listed in Pigeon Forge. Supercharge.info does not yet have any information about it, but Tesla is estimating Q3 2021, so more info should certainly be out on location and permits...

    Trade-In: What Pictures Do I Need?

    That is true in most, but possibly not all, states.

    Supercharger - Buford, GA

    I wonder if they will do deliveries here or if people will still have to go to Decatur (at least I think everyone has had to go to Decatur, right?)

    Have we all been played by Tesla?

    Clearly the multi-coat paints are more trouble. I'm sure it's why there are fewer of them coming out of the factory and why they're now $500 more than the others.

    Have we all been played by Tesla?

    Wow.. those are such completely different accusations that it's rather insulting and pathetic that you would equate them. There is actual evidence that what I described is happening. There are anecdotes from people who have late reservations getting delivery much earlier than some with older...

    Have we all been played by Tesla?

    You completely misread my point and are completely missing what people are saying is happening with order priority. People now believe that the following is happening: Customer A gave Tesla $1k on 4/2/16. Customer A configured his car, a white LR, PUP with wheel upgrade, and gave an additional...

    Have we all been played by Tesla?

    How does delivering a specific vehicle to Customer A rather than to Customer B change anything as far as Tesla's viability?
