    Supercharging in Texas

    Looks like Superchargers will show up sometime halfway between Austin, Houston and Dallas.

    Thanks, Babylon - this is awesome.

    Now if Tesla would tell us when these are happening within the next two years, we'll be all set. There's still a gap to El Paso, but this will make travel to Houston, Dallas and Galveston.

    I also wonder if Tesla will also have Supercharger capability at its galleries (i.e. Houston Galleria)?

    My question is where do you select the flotation (or submersible) option so you can follow the brown line?

    Anyone travel between Dallas and Houston? If I lived in the cities or north of Houston or South of Dallas, I wouldn't mind. But the S will not make it from McKinney to League City - and I will need to scam some electrons along the way. I see there is a Level 2 at Sam Houston State ... but anyone know of any else? Somewhere mid way? Buc-ee's?

    - obviously this is before the supercharger station goes in ...

    Your fastest level 2 charge spots are usually RV 50A outlets in Texas. Not as nice as hanging out near a coffee shop but you get 40A instead of the 30A at most public chargers.

    What about the EVGo? I hear they have 480v DC fast chargers - one in Lancaster and one in Spring. A little close to the city(ies), but I may be able to stretch it.

    Right now you can't use non-supercharger (Tesla ones) DC charging for the Model S yet.

    I see ... seems that EVGonetwork.com is certainly headed that way.

    Thanks for the map, Babylonfive. Just joined the site recently and had thought the superchargers were going to major cities. Glad that's not the case. Still, disappointed about the gaps in west and south Texas. Hopefully those eventually get filled. Also, getting to OK City in my 60kWh is going to be dicey at highway speeds. Wish they would put a station at WinStar Casino just north of the border...

    Welcome!
    It's all in your perspective - some believe that superchargers won't even ever make it to Texas,.. I'm crossing my fingers for Elon's dreams.

    I'm sure they will eventually be in Texas. I'm not so sure they will be in Texas within the two year time frame.

    I agree. For Tesla to make it past the early adopters they are going to have to continue to push the SuperChargers. But becoming cash flow positive has to be the priority for now.

    A very good spot for a Supercharger would be at the I-37 and State 59 intersection. This location would facilitate the travelers charging needs that travel San Antonio to Corpus Christi and the Laredo to Houston routes.

    There definitely needs to be a Supercharger at Columbus, Texas.
    This will cover I-10 for both Austin and San Antonio travelers going to Houston.

    Team up with Sonic Drive-In (there's one there on the commercial strip of Columbus). Charge up and eat up without leaving your car!
