    Was at the factory charging this evening and came across this when walking along the other side of the delivery center (where they relocated the long tent for new car deliveries and test drive vehicles):



    Not sure if these are meant for expansion of the existing set of chargers at the factory or if they're being shipped to somewhere else. The space occupied by that huge tent they used to have next to the delivery center a month or two back (not there anymore) is perhaps being allocated for expansion of the existing charging stalls?

    Those are not superchargers that are to be installed permanently in the ground, they are temporary mobile superchargers that can be trucked in and set up quickly to charge Model S vehicles. They are usually brought in to Supercharger sites when the original stalls are being worked on so that they don't have to close the station and so that they can handle the traffic flow even with the closed stalls.

    They could be there to accommodate the growing user base at Fremont until they can move forward with a permanent installation. Or as you said, they could be shipped off somewhere where they may need temporary superchargers.
