    If you look at the updated Tesla SuperCharger website a new Supercharger gray pin just showed-up.
    (Supercharger | Tesla Motors)

    It looks like its near the MA/NH border... Anybody notice?
    Unless its showing Dedham in the wrong spot.

    Pretty sure that's Dedham...

    Rats! I thought NE was the postal abbreviation for Nebraska. Perhaps the creator of the post could amend the title to remove this ambiguity? :smile:

    Well, you are in the New England forum. :smile:

    Not so sure. It looks too far north and east to me. It's almost at the same latitude as Brattleboro, and pretty far east. Dedham should be close in latitude to Auburn.

    I'd guess around Amesbury, at the 495/95 junction - this was rumored a while ago.

    My guess is it's the Salisbury one that has been rumored for awhile. That would put it very close to the NH/MA border on rt 95, perhaps off the 286 exit.

    You could certainly be right but then the question becomes what happened to Dedham? I doubt they left Dedham off but knowing some of the problems with Tesla's map over the last year I wouldn't be surprised either way.

    I would consider the possibility of this Supercharger going in NORTH of the border.

    Well if it Salisbury which I tend to agree with, Tesla will just have to add the missing Dedham button which doesn't show up in either the 2015 or 2016 maps.

    Tesla hasn't been consistent about adding superchargers at service centers elsewhere, either.

    If the location under the pointer really is indicative it's just South of the Intersection of I-495 and I-95, which puts it in MA and I-95 Exit 58 in Salisbury, MA has the kind of locations Tesla looks for.

    Not that it's directly relevant, but there's a massive solar farm (5 MW, if memory serves) right there, too. You can see it in to the northeast of the intersection of I-95 and MA-100:

    I think I got this. Seabrook has undergone a renovation with a new shopping center and Wal-Mart. The state just improved Exit 1 so that there was better accessibility to this new development. The development is called Seabrook Commons and is run by a company called DDR. DDR already has a relationship with Tesla by installing Superchargers on their other properties in Ohio, New Jersey, and Virginia. Poke around on this link and it provides the best circumstantial evidence at this time. If you look at the other videos for the Supercharger announcements, DDR is pro Tesla.

    Tesla seems to like locations based on elements like:
    1) Spacing
    2) Proximity to Interstate
    3) Proximity to intersections of multiple Interstates
    4) Amenities

    I think a Salisbury location by I-95 58 would be better for travel than the Seabrook Commons location since it could be closer to the Interstate, but the established relationship and ease of installation at Seabrook Commons (mall v strip, NH v MA) could be telling.

    Thanks for finding that.

    Interesting idea. Seabrook Commons closer to the interstate than several other SC sites (e.g. Edison), and there's a big benefit to Tesla in developing working relationships with a few companies like DDR.

    FWIW, no mention of Salisbury Common, Tesla, etc. in the Seabrook Planning Board agendas. (Planning Board Agendas | The Town of Seabrook, NH )

    And if you look at the 2015 & 2016 maps a supercharger does show pretty much in the same location. How we all love a mystery....

    If the pin just represents the Dedham supercharger poorly located on the map that is one thing, but if as most believe it is new supercharger location located near the NH/Maine/Mass border (i.e. Salsbury) then the mystery will continue until the map is corrected by Tesla with two pins.
