This company’s progress is just awesome.

It is so good for a change, to see a major business that delivers on its promises and exceeds expectations.

We are so lucky it is a clean-tech business.

Can’t wait to be able to afford one of their cars. Till then, we’ll settle for our Leaf πŸ™‚

I will completely second that statement:
“Can’t wait to be able to afford one of their cars. Till then, we’ll settle for our Leaf”

Absolutely love everything about my Leaf, but still dreaming of an affordable Tesla!

I’m happy everytime a new supercharger station opens. But Tesla promised a lot, and they still don’t seems to starts releasing stations as fast as they should. According to their own map, they need to release 49 new stations in the next 70 days (dead line is 21th december). That’s not a station per day, but nearly.

I think they have the sites picked up but they most likely are going though local zoning cases to get them opened which in the planning world can take easily a month if everything runs smoothly though the local zoning system.

I hope you’re right! They promised a lot, and if they can complete all those 49 stations before 21th december, it will be huge! Let’s face it, even if they do half of it, it will be great too. But they still have a lot of work ahead, and I try to hope that they will do what they said.

What is funny about this is this is the sound of another gas station getting the death blows sent to it. Such as I find it funny that we have all these plug in cars that can greatly reduce fossil fuel demand and we even have cars with people running them off of power made from solar power stations.

What I don’t get if this is all happening that will close down fossil fuel gas stations as we know it then why the bluegill do they keep opening up new gas station after gas station in my area. I mean the local zoning department has like three of them approved for one highway alone with in like six miles of one another along with the four already open.

I could think in ten years there is going to be a lot of ghost gas stations left over from the EV’s taking over.

Sad thing is I bet an awful lot of those stations will need some serious $$ to dig up their underground tanks and do environmental mitigation for reuse.
