As of 12/24/15, Cadillac, MI (1st use 11/10) with 8 stalls is listed and mapped. Total U.S. SCs now 44/244/1,640.

Cadillac's commissioning was much delayed by power quality issues.

Current list showing all SCs open as of 1/1/15 and subsequent, and full list showing all SCs open from 1/14, can be found here:

Site with a map showing all SCs open, under construction or permitted plus lots of other stuff can be found here:

Interesting, but not too surprising, reports of a 15 car wait at the Tejon Ranch Superchargers at http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthre ... OU-CAN!!!!.

For those unfamiliar w/CA, it's between the Bay Area and So Cal, near the Grapevine (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grapevine,_California). When going south, Tejon Ranch is prior to a significant hill climb. Not surprising that those w/Model S want to go between the two areas during a holiday weekend on free juice.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

If that's the "solution", I respond with http://www.greencarreports.com/news/110 ... ations-lag.

Add to the peak holiday travel time the fact that an alternative route, hwy 101, had a segment closed and you get a lot more traffic.
Luckily this is a very rare occurrence.
Hopefully the additional super chargers planned for the area will be added soon.

Have you forgotten about BEV charging times, i.e. a MAJOR issue versus an ICEV or a FCEV?
What just occurred is a negative not only for Tesla, but BEVs in general. That situation,
obviously to a lesser extent with Leaf QC stations, is my major negative experience having
the Leaf.

All depends upon your driving patterns.
Charging a BEV for me is far more convenient than refueling with gas.
This includes trips, although I have never had to wait at a line, and only had to wait for the charge twice.

If you take a lot of trips, and are in a hurry, and bought a short range BEV, yes, I would say you bought the wrong car.
Don't take it out on the people enjoying theirs.

A Tesla only traffic jam !

Tesla's are already a rare sight in the Midwest, can't imagine this many in one spot other than at the factory or a rally.

reminiscent of the '70's; although no shortage of electricity ... I'm sure its a strange sight indeed
