    The 2018 SC map shows Elberfeld, IN as a new SC along I-64 coming on line in 2018. This is the last piece of the I-64 corridor needed for easy travel to/from the east cost. With this SC in place even a MS60 can easily make trips to/from the east coast in the winter.

    Any clue on when this will happen?

    I'm also looking for information on this as I have in-laws in Evansville. They're installing a 50A outlet for me, but I can't seem to get them to make it a priority. Currently scheduled to get my Model 3 in less than 3 weeks and have no real way of charging it down there.

    I found that Tesla does own property in Gibson County as of 2017 (Elberfeld is in Warrick county to the east) but it appears to be a manufacturing facility and is a 15-20 minute drive from the nearest exits on I-69 or I-64.

    My guess is that it will have to be near the Loves/Flying J/Pilot stop on I-64/US-41 (also Gibson county) several miles to the west of Elberfeld itself, however I've reached the limit of my Internet sleuthing skills.

    Edit: I also found this tweet by Elon yesterday. Hopefully more information to come.

    Going into retirement I can afford a Model S60, so Super Charger's spaced about 100 to 125 miles apart are a must. Am guessing the same applies to the SR M3. The next "dump" of CPO's will probably force my hand, so hopefully by then they will have those gaps plugged (pun intended) else I'll just keep my Volt and not worry about such things.

    Just a suggestion... drive a little farther to Jasper Indiana, you'll find two free 48A public destination chargers between the Hampton Inn and the Schnitzelbank Restaurant.

    My class mate from high school owns both places.

    And, while you're there, get the fried chicken and the German Fries, they're amazing!

    If you are traveling through on I-64 and need a charge, Holiday World is closer. If you have the older dual chargers, even better - up to 16kW (200 V @ 80 Amps). Though Jasper is more on the way from Bloomington to Evansville.
