Not really that long for trailers but would work better than a reverse stall. I wonder why they put them next to the compact stalls. Are M3 considered "compacts"?

Needs longer straight sections on the entrance and exit. Or make those at a 45deg angle. If I pull in there with a trailer I’m blocking the drive lane behind me. Also looks a little tight pulling out and making a hard turn. I could see the back corner of the trailer taking out the charger stall with this setup.

Combine these with the non-Tesla charging subscriptions and I’ll be all over these with the F150L ;)

Seriously, is it interesting to see these being installed so far out from a CT delivery?

Not impressed with Tesla traffic programmer. These tight, narrowly crammed together chargers will work when they aren’t blocked, damaged or otherwise too occupied to make the tractor trailer turn radius into such tight lanes.
Putting chargers up on 3ft. wide islands and standoff 8” bollards 2ft. either side would’ve been useful pull-thru aid. But the designer choice to 50/50 bias locating the chargers kinda promotes half-assed pull-ins from either direction. Biasing 70/30 with one-way signage would’ve been the normal, customary practice.

Both the MX and MY have towing capability.

after looking at this again, what I thought were grey cement curbs are actually just flat cement drains. plenty of room to exit after all.

For years now, I think, with these showing up now.

I get that Tesla is maybe splitting the difference and getting out both behind the X/Y and ahead the CT, just an interesting approach.

Being more serious: the size and layout of these lanes seems more appropriate for MX and MY “towing” than for full sized pickups with trailers, etc.
