It's on the "opening soon" map of Teslamotors. Probably close to Starbucks at McKittrick exit.
Agreed, that is the way I interpret the 2015 and 2016 locations coming for the Central Valley. I see no new locations on I5. Perhaps Tesla will expand the Tejon and Harris Ranch locations.The "Coming Soon" pin in the Central Valley is for the location known to be in permitting in Fresno. The 2016 pin north of Tejon Ranch appears to be in Bakersfield.
I drove it about 6 years ago. It's very twisty in parts - much more than 46, was clearly less-traveled, and is slower to get though.
I drove it a year or two ago, in July or August. Quite windy (that's 'windy' as in 'curvy') through the pass IIRR, but you do pass within long distance view of a huge (250 MW) solar array in California Valley on the way. I took the La Panza Rd. cutoff to Creston, and then Creston Rd. into Paso Robles (I was heading home to the Bay Area), so can't speak to the last section into Santa Margarita. You can certainly take 41 direct into Atascadero from Creston if you want.Prophet is correct. Not a bad route to take in early spring before it gets hot. The Carrizo Plain it kinda neat. But SR58 terminates at US101 in Santa Margarita, just north of Cuesta Grade and about 8 miles south of Atascadero.
Just a little update.... looks like the additional I5 one is definitely Buttonwillow. Also should be seeing a expansion of Harris Ranch. Might be old news.. been away for a while.
My sources concur with the above intel.
This is a curious location unless I'm missing something. its not close enough to Harris ranch to off load some of the usage there (75 miles to the north). And
Approx 45 miles north of Tejon. It might offset some usage from that location. but doubtfull as your going to burn off 45 miles and then hit the pass which is going necessitate hitting a closer charger in the LA Basin. I Doubt any would would stop twice. Here and Tejon. I can only see this be an advantage if you get an alert Tejon is down or full.
