Anyone hear anything about the forthcoming west-metro supercharger's location? The supercharger map on Tesla's website shows - I believe - three "coming soon" spots generally in the west metro. This is long overdue in my opinion, would love to know where they may go in! Anyone?

Yes, would love to know if the Minneapolis supercharger is in progress since the website says end of 2017.
 
I purchased my model s in 2016. I was told by Tesla that Minneapolis would have 3 SC by the end of 2016. When that didn't happen I contacted Tesla again and was told to be patient that they would be installed by the end of 2017. I have again contacted tesla corporate and guess what they will be installed by the end of 2018. It is very sad that tesla has ignored there costumes in Minnesota.

You are in my shoes 2 years later. I was told all that starting in 2014 about North Dakota... I don't have a single SC in the state yet. The midwest wasn't on their priority list after i-90 had the minimum 120mile distance setup early on. It's understandable, due to population centers, but then don't talk about it like it's happening.

Does anyone have info about the Minnetonka SC? I have been trying to dig up some info, but turning up nothing.
No, but the current belief is pushing Tesla to show profit ASAP so there as been almost zero Supercharger happenings for a couple months(A few on the coasts and China the notable installs). The urban chargers are not high on the priority list right now either it seems, plus that one is slated for 2019 install so it could easily be a year until the location is even selected.
 
So this may just be a place-holder, but I saw that there's a Tesla logo on the way-finding pylons in the signage overview for the new Minnesota United stadium in St. Paul. Perhaps this will be a urban supercharger location?

A sponsor logo means Tesla is (gasp) advertising!
