    From TM maps that were published on their website it seemed that 2015 was going to be the year for Superchargers on the east coast for a change. However, reality seems to be a bit different. YTD shows only 25% or so on the east coast. Are the maps terribly incorrect ? Or are we going to see a HUGE flurry of activity on the east coast soon ? Are we just not sluething as well as the west coast (probably due to lack of experience LOL)? Further thoughts and comments ? :rolleyes:

    It could be multiple factors. I'm pretty sure that the one in Norfolk is under construction now, but no one has yet located it or dug up the permits.

    And there were like 4 times the amount in the rest of the country. The east coast map shows a HUGE influx to the east coast this year.

    Since you included Ohio and Kentucky in the East coast, you might as well go with everything this side of the Continental divide.

    I think it's fair to include the eastern time zone.

    The continental divide is two time zones west of that.

    States that are split on the Eastern / Central Time zone line include

    Florida
    Tennessee
    Kentucky
    Indiana
    Michigan (Upper Peninsula)

    States that are completely Eastern Time zone but not purely coastal include

    New York
    Pennsylvania

    Landlocked (non ocean) Eastern Time

    West Virginia
    Vermont
    Ohio

    It's really not that many to add to the obviously coastal states and yes I'd call them Eastern states.

    Probably have better luck asking in the European charging subforum.
