More Teslas on the Road Meant Hours-Long Supercharger Lines Over Thanksgiving


Black Friday shopping lines weren’t the only queues frustrating people this past weekend. A number of Tesla drivers took to social media to vent about extremely crowded Supercharger stations that turned a promised fast stop into an hours-long slog to recharge during one of the year's busiest travel times. With Model 3 mass production in full swing, there are now well over 400,000 Teslas on American roads, and it appears that growth is exposing the Supercharger network's pain points in high-traffic times like this past weekend.

One Facebook clip shows a line measuring roughly a quarter mile in length, consisting of 50-odd Teslas waiting at a Supercharger in Kettleman City, California, just off Interstate 5.

Yeah, I can see this as being a real issue with the current charge times (no pun intended). Hell, most folks get fidgety waiting at the local Costco to gas up, and the long waits are usually only about 15-20 minutes, tops.

The Teslas don't need a Tesla charging station, any EV charging tower will do. Or just charge at home, try that with a fossil vehicle.
The owners will learn, give it time. What the story covers is as dumb as thinking FIATCA owners should only buy worldwide terrorist funding gasoline at Texaco stations.

The electric compagny here is waiting here when more people get on the bandwagon of lectric cars to install more charging stations and put higher rates at specific places snd time to make more money over this.. the petrol slavery that we're having now will transform but not disapear.. into an electric bill instead


Im gonna hang on , on conventionnal cars as long as i can..
