For example, folks wanting to make the trip from Fort Myers, Florida to Miami, Florida will not first drive 2.5 hours out of their way North to Tampa, then take Rt. 4 East to Daytona Beach, then drive down to Miami. They will take I-75 South and then across Alligator Alley East to Fort Lauderdale then South to Miami. This of course doesn't pertain just to folks in Fort Myers. Folks generally don't drive North to go South, so most people South of Tampa are going to drive South and cross the state at another West to East arterial other than Rt 4.
In other words I'm suggesting that they need a Supercharger on Alligator Alley (I-75) even though its not shown on the simplified Interstate map.
I think Telsa needs to deploy their network quickly. They decided to go it alone with their standard and need to step up. In Texas, we could start with 4 or 5 chargers to cover travel between the 4 major cities. I hope they don't delay other installations for a few years.
I don't believe anyone posted this yet. Telsa used to state that Supercharging could attain 80% charge in 45 minutes. That has changed slightly to 50% in 30 minutes.
Plug In Anywhere
Model S comes standard with everything you need to plug into the most common 240-volt outlet, standard 120-volt wall outlets and public stations. With a High Power Wall Connector and Twin Chargers, Model S can be recharged at the rate of 62 miles range per hour. A fifty-percent charge in thirty minutes can be achieved with a Tesla Supercharger
The 62 MPHC is not constant. I saw that at one point in a charge cycle the rate can get as fast a 230 MPHC.
The world loves to be deceived.
Because there are tons of crazy people in this world...
