Does Tesla Need New, Improved Supercharger Signage?
That is the question posed by Teo T, a UK resident, to Tesla Motors in these design concept photos submitted to the company. Could the Supercharging signage be improved?
Currently UK residents are patiently waiting on the arrival of RHD – right hand drive Tesla Model S P85Ds/85Ds (reportedly delayed until August), but when they arrive Teo proposes that Tesla’s Supercharging stations could have a more universal and understandable symbol.
He tells InsideEVs this on the project recently submitted to Tesla:
“I noticed that all EV charging stations around the world display a Car&Plug symbol, except Tesla Superchargers. There are many different versions of the Car&Plug symbol. So I thought there should be another version for Tesla. This symbol is easier to understand by ICE car drivers than the Tesla T logo.”
The inspiration for the work first formed after reading this message on Tesla Motors forums: “Mike83, December 14, 2014, “I was charging on a trip at Vacaville when a lady came up to park at the SC. I went to confront her but nicely. She thought the big cables were a vacuum cleaner.“
What do you think? Is Tesla’s currently signage lacking in anyway? Would you like to see Tesla take up Teo on his more universally recognised EV charging design concept?
