The last TM informational meeting I was at they asked for suggestions for supercharger locations. And I know there is a bunch of individual local discussions of best places to place a supercharger. I made another map in ZeeMaps for placing in your suggestions.
Tesla Supercharger Desired Locations
- To add a marker, use the "Additions"/"Add Marker - Detailed or Simple" drop-down.
- Use your reservation number followed by dash and your personal ranking e.g. "P1635-1" or "S42 (EU)-1" (1 would be highest priority for yourself)
- Please follow the color-coding convention in the legend at the bottom: green=90kW charger, lightgreen=20kW, lightblue=10kW (chargers should have lower levels at same location)
- If there is someone else with a reservation already in your desired location, please place your marker slightly to one side; otherwise, it will not be visible.
- If someone else already placed a marker near your desired location please be sure to place another marker there. The high frequency marker locations (from different reservation holders) can be the biggest signal to an Ideal location. You can turn off other posting by clicking on the ledge on the footer of the map - then you should be able to place without the other marker interfering.
- Try to be as specific as possible for the location - since this is a location you specifically would desire you should know what is in the area already. These markers are for trips you should be doing regularly.
Try to keep your suggestions for places that you would utilize only (<10 locations) . Hopefully others will choose similar locations and would send a signal to TM of what locations would be useful.
Traveling speeds affect distances - here is a approximate guide of ideal distances :

Using your data for range at 80mph:
85 kwh/213miles= 399 wh/mile
60kwh/163 miles= 368 wh/mile
40kwh/109 miles= 367 wh/mile.
you have 400 wh/mile, 367 wh/mile and 345 wh/mile numbers in your wh/mile table. Coincidentally 40kwh/116 miles (75 mph number) = 345 wh/mile suggesting something like an excel row shift error.
Thank you for the tables.

Many thanks to daxz for seizing the initative! Can you add some tables with ranges in km and speed in kph? Mind you, 150kph is a convenient cruising speed here!

at 150 km/h you can go a max of 270 km w/ 85kWh pack
You are also getting close the limit of where the supercharge can sustain that velocity over long distances. For some distances it's quicker over all to slow down then it is to stop to charge.
Max sustained velocity for charger sizes.

I have just filled Denmark with all the optimal locations

- 04-03-2012, 03:45 PM #9daxz: Great idea. Have you e-mailed Tesla with this map? I'm sure they probably already know about it but might be good information for them. Thanks.
