But it will all be wonderful once that's done, and the M1/M6/A14 mess is sorted... I've got go try that out .. just for the novelty of it !!
(but word of warning ... the northbound stretch of M1 between J15, 15A, 16 up to 18 has been a near permanent nightmare for past 4 months and will continue till June 2015. Its often a car park at anything other than 2am due to 3 into 1 lane restrictions starting at J16. If google traffic says there's traffic up the M1, avoid using it and keep an eye on grid lock up the A5, A45, and all surrounding roads including the sneaky back roads. I speak from multiple bad experiences in the past month ... sometimes involving hours of delays )
Tesla openly admit they have concentrated rolling out SC to London to serve the large number of people that don't have off-street parking. They use the term "ownership enablement".shame its only 2 x stalls though? where is the rollout out like In Norway and the States? all the chargers outside of London (area excluding reading & maidstone which are close) are only 2 stalls? quick check in Norway and Sweden and there are no 2 stall chargers they are mainly 8 stall?
Typically London centric attitude like everything else is, honestly do people live anywhere else in this country other than the London area? I am beginning to wonder? and who needs a car in London anyway LOL
Doesnt look like Tesla are taking this very seriously over here?
Although I'd argue somewhere nearer East Midlands Airport would be better, plenty of potential locations. Just off the Motorway and if they can't get enough power feed to put in a 10 bay Supercharger next door to Ratcliffe On Soar power station I'm not sure there's many places in the UK they canMy part of the world is crying out for a Supercharger, probably the most ideal location on the M1 as it is so central.
We have a brand new service area on J29a that falls right in between Woodhall services & Tibshelf, so Ecotricity won't be too fussed, but I just can not get them to talk to Tesla nor the other way around.
Tesla have been selling the Model S in the UK for 6 months. There are already 20 known supercharger sites (if you include the two that they built but which have then been mothballed because of the Ecotricity spat) which is more than they have in Norway, their biggest European market, after 15 months of selling the car there. That's one site every 11 days since launch day. And it's only 19 December; they may not be done yet for 2014Doesnt look like Tesla are taking this very seriously over here?
Good point I guess Exeter is.Surely the Warrington and Exeter SC classify as "range extension"?
