Although not “officially” announced by Tesla yet -or added to their network map (update – it is now), South Dakota can now boast being part of the Tesla Supercharging Network as the chargers went live just a few days ago.

The Superchargers are located in Rapid City, SD at 2200 N. Maple Ave, Rapid City, SD 57701.  As the forecasted demand is not nearly as high as some other, more optimal locations for Tesla, this location will feature just 4 charging stalls.

As you can see from the above picture, the local Red Lobster will now be attracted a more “well-heeled” clientele.  Other places to pass the time while you wait for your Model S to charge include a Starbucks, Texas Roadhouse, Fuddruckers, Olive Garden and the Rushmore Mall.

In SoCal. Supposedly, the solar panels will lag by as much as 18 months.

If readers go to to Tesla’s interactive map they can see that this Rapid City charger is just one of about 13 chargers scheduled to be put in this winter. These series of chargers will link west coast to east coast via the great lakes region:

Maybe this will be Musk’s route for his planned cross country trip.

Also apparently next to the “Time Out Family Amusement Center”. Is that like a Golf ‘n Stuff or something? Or like a mini-Six Flags?

Probably like a kid-oriented Dave & Busters with arcade games, pinball, skeeball, pool, air hockey, etc..

I hope they put chargers at Wall Drug 🙂

If what alainl007 says below is correct, no Wall Drug.

But you can charge while touring the CORN PALACE (Mitchell, SD)!

Looks like they will have an East Coast to West Coast path relatively soon.

Sorry, I’m slow but did get it, eventually 🙂

Well, you know what they say, if you can’t beat them, join them. If Tesla is successful and starts making money others will follow.
