Blog Musk Teases 50’s-Themed Santa Monica Supercharger Station



A Supercharger station with 50’s diner is coming to Santa Monica, Calif., Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Twitter. 

Replying to a tweet showing a line of Tesla vehicles waiting to charge, Musk said a “major new Supercharger station coming to Santa Monica soon!” 






Tesla previously proposed a station in Santa Monica that would have 62 stalls, expected to be the world’s largest V3 Supercharger station. It’s not clear if that proposal will be the site of the diner. Musk said that in addition to a diner for Tesla owners to relax while their vehicles charge, the station will also show the “100 best movie clips.”

Musk said in 2018 that he wanted Supercharger locations to feature an “old school drive-in, roller skates & rock restaurant.” Musk said the station would include an outdoor screen playing “a highlight reel of the best scenes in movie history.” And, Musk plans for the diner’s digital menu to pop-up on Tesla owners’ screens when the vehicle is placed in park.

It still strikes me as odd (and kinda dumb) that the car cannot handle SC queues automatically. Having to sit in line or wait in your car in a nearby parking spot (and hope others are respecting first-come first-served) seems primitive to me. Why can't the cars/apps coordinate the queue, so you can go grab coffee or something while you wait .. after all, the cars all know how much more charging time they have, so figuring out wait times and altering you shouldn't be too hard to work out.
