    If you've seen my name on TMC you'll know that I follow supercharger threads from all around the world. As we all know the supercharger network is growing at a huge rate, but sometimes it still isn't enough. Everyone thinks that their area has been specifically targeted by Musk to have poor supercharger coverage. A supercharger that takes longer than average to build was done on purpose to annoy someone on their planned road trip. And people in a remote area that, 8-9 months ago, was thrilled to get superchargers is now complaining that there are no plans for an even more remote spur off that route.

    It reminded me of this. And it's funny anyway, so thought I'd post it here!

    Exactly what I mean. I know it is disappointing when your area isn't covered - I'm in the exact same boat!

    But consider the rate of growth of the supercharger network, incredible progress has been made in just 5 years. Something that didn't exist when the first Model S owners bought their cars is now expected to be ubiquitous. They can't build everywhere at the same time!

    They should solve the chicken-egg problem first (everywhere), build first superchargers where none exist. Ofcourse, they would need to build also a service center here, but welcome and more Kudos for Tesla when it eventually happens and should have happened in the first place!
