Officials in Needles, CA have announced that there will be a Supercharger there by the end of the year:
Spike, Tesla expected in Needles by yearâ€™s end - Mohave Daily News: Needles Desert Star
End of 2014 or 2015?
Looking forward to not having to sweat out the Barstow/Kingman leg on my way to Tucson from Napa (yes)California.
Check out thread on Mojave. In permitting I gather.Looking forward to a charger between Harris Ranch and Barstow on Hwy 99 above Bakersfield so one doesn't have to go out of their way miles and miles to Tejon. Tesla says they are in the plans, when I emailed them a few months ago. I wonder where.
Needles now shows up on the navi system! Did they sneak another opening?:biggrin:
Must have! It appears on my touchscreen too. I hope this location is better than the Carl's Jr. parking lot in Kingman. When I charged in Kingman in June, I encountered too many sketchy types loitering about in the afternoon. Needles will cut down on charge times in Kingman, that is for sure!
I think the 25 miles or so between Needles and Laughlin makes a difference, especially when going to/from Barstow.I wished I would of known about this last week, drove to Laughlin for a couple days after ces show and drove through needles on way back home to San Diego. It is a needed site, suprised they didn't put in Laughlin not much in needles.
