New Mexico to Soon Get Two Tesla Superchargers
If you look upon Tesla’s Supercharger map today, you’ll see no sites in New Mexico. The neighboring states of Colorado (2), Texas (5) and Arizona (1) all have at least one Supercharger, but New Mexico has none.
That’ll change soon as cities of Gallup and Farmington, New Mexico are both slated to have Supercharger stations open up any day now.
The site in Gallup is expected to open first (perhaps within a day or two), whereas the Supercharger site in Farmington isn’t expected to be operational until sometime in January.
Farmington Mayor Tommy Roberts says the Supercharger site will drive up tourism in the Four Corners area, so that’s an added bonus for the city.
Tesla spokesman Patrick Jones says this of Supercharger installs:
“While people are plugged in and getting a charge, they’re actually in town and eating at restaurants, shopping at local places.”
Perhaps that’s why so many cities across the US are eager to get Superchargers.
