    Has anyone noticed the new marker for a Supercharger that looks to be right in New Orleans on the 2017 Supercharger map?

    I did.

    Did you notice the "Coming Soon" Service Center pin that's been over New Orleans since at least early 2013?

    Just saying...

    Awe man, you killed my hopes NOLA Mike. It would be really convenient for me to have local Supercharger access when I travel back home. Maybe the supercharger will actually come to fruition since it is much easier than a Service Center. But then again, the placement of a supercharger in New Orleans does seem redundant.

    Honestly, I think it will happen (Supercharger) eventually (maybe even in 2017). One good thing - a supercharger is allowed but a Service Center is blocked by the Louisiana Auto Dealer Cartel/Mob that has lawmakers in their well lined pockets.

    I hate the facts but like the post. MI, TX, LA... these things need wholesale Supreme repudiation if we believe in unfettered interstate commerce and commercial control over ones own products.

    Sometime these laws will go away. Soon enough, probably not. This one should be instant for conservatives.

    I didn't realize Louisiana law prevented them from opening up a service center. Pretty brutal, but I'm not surprised.

    the map sometimes is more of a wish list than a map of actual locations.
