The final cut of TMC Podcast #34 is available now with topics timestamped. We covered Tesla's rollercoaster prices, Toyota pushing junk science, Mike's new Model 3, Optimizing track mode for snow driving, FSD V11 apparently coming by the end of this week, and more. You can watch and check out the chat replay on YouTube.
I think I might know why this one is delayed. In NJ, Tesla has been favoring Wawa convenience stores and Target department stores, so they’re prime locations to look for. Whereas there are Targets on multiple sides of Wayne, it wouldn’t make sense to build another in it BUT there was supposed to be a Wawa opening in 2019 on Route 23 on the site of the former Nagels Candy Barn (across the highway from the BMW dealership). This would be not far the intersection of 80/46/23 and a central location for a supercharger, but there has been a lot of push back from the community saying “we don’t need another gas station”.
I’d say Boonton might be another option, but that’s been finished for months and they haven’t even come around to turn it on...
They just finished building a new Whole Foods in Parsippany (although it’s actually right over the border in Mountain Lakes, technically) and despite having “Low Emissions Vehicle” parking reserved up front, it has no charging infrastructure. Not even a ChargePoint setup.
Those parking spots are generally filled with Hondas, Toyotas, and even Minis, as most are technically considered LEVs. Good concept, poor execution.
