    Today I came out to this on a Portuguese FB group.
    I can swear there was only 2 SuperChargers 2 months ago!
    Great change .
    Hope they soon cross the border to Portugal.
    Getting real close!

    Boa noticia (spelling? !
    @Gilberto Pe-Curto , I cannot imagine that you would not have at least 2-3 locations within 2 years which is I the earliest delivery time for our Model ≡ I imagine!! Same thing for SW France! :)
    Bom dia!
    Mike

    @Michael Russo
    You're getting better at portuguese day by day !
    Or just got to use Google translator better ?! ;-)
    It's "Boa notícia" with an accent in the first letter 'i'.
    Correct Portuguese is not easy, not even for portuguese school children.
    Well done !!!


    About the locations.
    They said it would be 3:
    - Lisboa, Capital
    - Faro or Portimão, South Portugal in the Algarve tourist region
    - Porto, North and capital of the famous OPorto Wine.
    The three mains locations here and strategically located to allow for visitors to cross Portugal in a Tesla.

    As I mentioned before I reserved a M3 without knowing how am I going to charge it, so this is big news to me.
    I'm not saying I'm going to use a SC for my day-to-day use, but seems to be hapening sooner then I thought would be.

    Nope... No Google translator this time... It was just me... And I kind of knew about the í yet wrote it on the treadmill here in the hotel gym so did not think of holding the i key on my iPhone long enough! :)

    Oh! Super! So my (uneducated...) was right! I hope I will be as astute for my future home in SW France!! :)
    Time to get ready for work now!
    Take care.

    Maybe one of my very first trips in M3 would be finally visiting SW France, Hossegor and surroundings and finally trying the surf there.
    I've been postponing this trip for years now.

    Take Care

    Nice! Glad to see Tesla is really moving quickly with the network. Now if they could fill in the wide gaps in Canada that would be great.

    Like you said, Trev, they cannot forget about service centres!! For instance only two for the greater Houston area, one for the entire SW quarter of France, that will not do when they are selling >500k cars per year and soon double that!! :)

    Tesla believes it is building a car that only requires an annual service. In reality that hasn't been the case but that is what they are striving for.

    @EBelly , I do believe it will be less frequent and less costly in the long run... yet even if only once per year, I would rather not have to drive 2 to 3 years to get my Model ≡ serviced... yet would do it... if I needed to... I'll be retired! :p

    That is how I feel. I'm retired and my closest service center is 180 miles away. (My state doesn't allow Tesla to operate in it yet) It worries me a little but the trip to the service center could be made into a midweek getaway. And I'm hopeful that once an year is all it takes.
