    The updated map shows several new locations in addition to the 2017 map:

    I see:

    4 locations in Portland
    Tigard
    Salem
    Roseburg
    Newport
    Madras
    Hood River
    Boardman
    Ontario

    Additional chargers at:

    Woodburn
    Springfield

    Looks like they took off the Grants Pass expansion

    (Please correct me if I miss one)

    Removed Grant's Pass? That one has been pretty busy a couple times I've been there. Like full busy.

    I know! I don't see a grey marker like Woodburn or Springfield does.

    Looks like Burns will have to wait another year for their Supercharger :). My wife will be happy with the Salem site, she has to be there every month.

    I'm a little surprised at the Newport site, since it's so close to Lincoln City. On the other had, more Superchargers, the better.

    I wouldn't be using a smiley face for that. I'm still a little surprised that they are putting in so much redundancy while still leaving two regularly used routes in this area not connected. Highway 20 through Burns and highway 95 to Winnemucca need one each. And with them continuing the trend toward lower and lower onboard AC chargers in the car, it is clear that they want people to rely on Superchargers more than on high amp AC charging along these kinds of routes that are too far for one charge. Well, OK then, but you have to build it, Tesla.

    I would also add, even though it's not in Oregon, Susanville CA, since it would really open up the Reno to Klamath Falls route.

    Yep, part of the same large triangular hole.

    I charged twice at Grants Pass this week and noticed utility locator marks all around the pedestals and the chargers enclosure. I presumed this was related to an expansion.

    Excellent! I hope it was an oversight by map guys at Tesla.

    It's cool seeing Tesla's further and further into the bush. Was in Clarkston and Pullman last weekend and counted four, including one Model X.

    Grant's Pass construction definitely under way. Looks like at least 8 bays when finished. I'm there now. Charging 278mph on an old A-series pack. Can't seem to get a photo to load.

    Although Grants Pass is currently a critical supercharging stop and will undoubtedly remain that way given its a nexus for north and south bound traffic on I-5, traffic to/from Crater Lake, and coastal traffic to/from US-101, it’s one of my least favorites places to have to charge. Where do you go other than the Black Bear Diner that’s within walking distance? Plus, it seems to be a cellular coverage hole for at least two of the major carriers.

    Roseburg will help provide some options for the I-5 traffic at least and is helpful, but I’m hopeful we’ll see Medford added as a supercharger in the near future to help reduce the demand for and time spent charging at Grants Pass.

    Hurray for all of these! Super happy to see Portland proper get some supercharging options, and Madras will fill in a gap along one of the most beautiful drives in the country. Hood River is a smart choice as well, especially for those heading to/from Mt Hood, although I will miss charging up at the Tofurky ChargePoint.

    Corvallis needs a supercharger.
