Pick one out for Tesla’s first Supercharger station. No matter where you stand on Tesla’s cars and company, there’s no doubt that one of the firm’s grand achievements remains its electrek Reported on Monday, the day of its closure., and as of Monday, the first station is no longer there. News of the closure first made its way to Reddit on Saturday, when a user posted signage stating that the station would be closed to the public on July 19.
We don’t have an official answer as to why Tesla decided to close the station. The company does not operate a public relations department to request requests for comment and CEO Elon Musk’s Twitter feed does not mention the news. However, according to a Reddit user who posted the information, they spoke with personnel on the site and made the decision to shut down the site for security reasons. This Supercharger station is actually located at Tesla’s design studio in Los Angeles, California. According to information, the public sometimes wanders into the design studio and some of the conference rooms are also visible from the station. Inevitably, it seems like Tesla doesn’t want the public to know about any of the projects the firm is working on. And honestly, it’s valid.
The Supercharger is no longer available on the company’s maps or in-car navigation systems, so it’s a goner, folks. That said, Tesla owners can find other Superchargers across the street at a local Target or at a nearby Marriott hotel.
