Tesla Uses QR Code To Reveal First Supercharger In Mexico
Back in April, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk revealed (via Twitter) that Mexico would be getting its first Supercharger soemtime this year.
Now, via a tipster who sent a photo to Teslarati, we’ve learned that construction is indeed underway on Mexico’s first Supercharger.
“…a tipster sent us a photo of a relatively unassuming parking garage that was adorned with QR codes pasted to the wall behind each parking space. Our informant stated that the QR code pointed to a past tweet made by Tesla CEO Elon Musk.”
“Given the small size of the image and the distorted proportion of the QR code within it, we weren’t able to validate the claim. But sure enough once we blew up the image and readjusted the QR code to resemble a square, a quick scan led us to Elon’s Tweet from April 3.”
The contents of the April 3rd tweet are shown in the image to your right.
Teslarati reached out to Tesla to confirm the news. Tesla responded with this:
“Yes, we can confirm that we are planning on having our first Supercharger in Mexico in Cuernavaca City.”
Tesla has but one store in Mexico (in Mexico City, to be precise). The location of this first Supercharger is approximately 50 miles south of the store.
