    Elon has recently spoken on the subject and he feels that the 40 kWh battery pack should not be considered a road trip car. It seems that the 60 kWh battery pack was always considered for the Supercharging network, it was just the pricing of the access to the network that was up in the air for a while.

    Tesla is still pretty California-centric but I wonder how many superchargers FL would really need/get if they're to be every ~100miles?
    I would be happy if the Florida Supercharger intervals were between 125-150 miles.

    BTW Larry, I'm also becoming increasingly certain that with our flat terrain I could get 400 miles out of a charge if we could find the right route.
    Yes, no doubt if you could travel slow enough without getting rear-ended by the faster traffic.

    My only regular long distance trip is from Boca Raton to my mother-in-law's in The Villages. Fort Drum Service Plaza on the TP would be ideal, but it is probably too far to be the only supercharge between Miami and Orlando. Somewhere near the Fort Pierce TP/I-95 intersection would be a better location for Miami/Orlando. Somewhere near the TP/I-4 intersection would probably be good too.

    Or I could just do the whole 220 mile journey on one charge at 60mph - NOT!

    Hi Nick,

    Did you have any specific suggestions regarding a potential host locations that would have the necessary amenities?

    I noticed a Cracker Barrel Restaurant at Rt-70 between I-95 and the Turnpike and an RV resort in that vicinity.

    There's a Fuddruckers located near the intersection of the Tunpike and I-4.

    The best place for the Supercharger in Orlando would probably be the Mall at Milennia. It's right off the intersection of I-4 and the turnpike.

    The Mall at Milennia might be an excellent location, especially since a Tesla store is eventually planned for that location.

    However, it may be unnecessary to have a Supercharger located in Orlando because there are some at hotels there where one can obtain a full charge overnight.

    In other words Orlando is a major destination. The initial allocation of Superchargers probably should be located between major destinations rather than at them.

    Actually, I think it would make perfect sense as Orlando is the crossroads of Florida with I4 connecting both coasts and the turnpike running N/S.

    Of course, having a supercharger nearby would be just plain cool

    I spent yesterday morning at the Dania Beach store/service center getting my new 21 inch wheels and asked about new supercharger stations.The only feedback I got was that Orlando was a certainty for a supercharger station.No guess as to time frame.
