    From the George B blog post:

    We will be adding Supercharger coverage in many areas over the next three to four months, installing our first Superchargers in the Pacific Northwest, Texas, Illinois, and Florida with additional coverage in the Northeast and California.

    Can't wait!

    No AZ love? Unless they are going to put them in CA border towns. I thought we heard that ones to make PHX to LV and LA possible were imminent!

    I-40 would be great (especially for Route 66ers)

    Yea I think Elon said in his interview the other day that we'll be able to go from NYC to LA using superchargers by end of this year.

    Whoohoo Northwest! Hopefully somewhere on I-5 between Seattle and Portland and between Portland and Medford area maybe.

    I second that. The entire I-95 corridor would be wonderful, especially south of Washington into North Carolina, say Richmond or Emporia and Rocky Mount NC.

    And definitely need one south of DC (NoVa) -- I want to be able to drive up to DC and back without trying to figure out how to do it, or having to drive (gasp!) 55...

    I bet they stage in the entire thing: I-40 all the way from Barstow to Raleigh and connect to I-95.

    Surely soon we'll hear about Superchargers on I-10 from LA to Phoenix, I-17 from Phoenix to Flagstaff, and I-40 from Flagstaff to Barstow. That would enable a lot of travel. Kingman is a bit more than 100 miles from the strip. Barstow to Kingman is a bit far at just over 200 miles, especially with the altitude changes and blaring heat during the summer, but there's a stop about half way, Hi Sahara Oasis, just north of Essex. Kingman to Flagstaff is just under 150 miles, albeit uphill with 75mph speed limit.

    Then, assuming Texas Superchargers will be along I-35 between Dallas/Fort Worth & San Antonio and I-45 between D/FW & Houston, and Pacific Northwest & additional California Superchargers will enable travel from WA (& maybe even BC) all the way to Barstow, adding some along I-40 between Flagstaff & OKC and I-35 between OKC & Dallas would allow travel from Seattle (& maybe even Vancouver) all the way to Houston!

    Then they complete the route from OKC to Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, Greensboro, & on to Raleigh. By that time, I-95 Boston to Miami will be complete. Now the whole West Coast & East Coast are covered, with I-40 connecting them.

    How about a coast to coast corridor for some extra publicity?

    How about an 80 amp J1772 for the poor Roadster owners and as a backup for model S owners?

    That would be great! Charge at nearly 60 Ideal Miles per hour - twice what you can do at a RV campground.

    It would have to be a 70A J1772 as the Roadster will NOT charge from an 80A circuit. There is a flaw in the firmware that cannot read the 80A pilot signal.

    Is 70A the max the Roadster will take? Or is 75A ok ?

    Anyhow, Tesla should REALLY fix this now. It can't be very difficult...

    +1 : Two along I-25 between Albuquerque & Denver will enable trips to my nearest service center! I'm one of the 1% farther than 100 miles from the closest one.

    But my guess is we'll first see I-40 from Barstow to Flagstaff & I-17 from there to Phoenix (see my post above). A few more along I-40 from Flagstaff to ABQ would enable trips to the (not yet open) Scottsdale service center for Burqueños like myself.
