Tesla has received commission approval to install the largest V3 Supercharger station in the world in Santa Monica, California. Some of the spaces seem to be dedicated for charging Cybertruck, which is the second known case of this when planning the company's new charging stations.

Tesla plans to launch the world's largest Supercharger V3 station in Santa Monica, California. Documents filed with the Santa Monica Planning Commission indicate that the station will include 62 V3 stalls. The new V3 station is planned at 1401 and 1421 Santa Monica Boulevard.

On March 4, the Santa Monica Planning Commission approved a fast-charging station, which was supported by a majority, although two commissioners voiced some concerns about this. These include possible fan noise from the station, possible loud music from Tesla cars that will charge there, the likelihood that Supercharger could attract homeless people to the site, and a statement that this station is a project for the rich, which is not true and unlikely can be attributed to a valid reason for refusing to approve the application.

According to the documents, the Supercharger station will consist of two separated sections. The western section will include 36 Supercharger V3 stalls and the eastern section, 26 stalls. In addition, solar panels on the western section, batteries, and a restroom that is accessed by a code are planned for the project.

Most of the spaces are standard widths of nine feet, however, noteworthy is the fact that some of them reach 10'-12'. This may indicate that they can serve as parking spaces for Cybertruck.

In September 2020, a proposal from the Pasadena Water and Power Department in California showed Tesla is planning the installation of 20 charging stations in the city-owned broadway power plant parking lot located at the Southwest corner of South Arroyo PKWY and Glenarm Street in Pasadena, California. A presentation with Pasadena officials revealed that the six spaces will be wider and longer and confirmed that the new charging station will indeed include six locations for Cybertruck. It seems that Tesla is taking active measures in order to make Cybertruck charging as comfortable as possible for its owners.

I'm a big fan of Tesla, as I worry about the future for my child and for future generations. Tesla's mission is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy and I'm passionately striving for this goal. I’m tired of the daily deception from Tesla’s haters against the company, so I strive to spread true information and the latest news about Tesla.

Odd that all superchargers, especially since V3, are built in the middle of nowhere between two towns in some direction in Norway (might be gas station or roadside cafe there), as if to say charge at Home and use a Supercharger when on a trip, while quite a lot of the ones I hear talk about in the US these days are on a lot in the middle of a city. Any idea why? Different road structure or longer US trip culture? Less chance of people using them as daily chargers? Totally wrong impression from me?

70 destinations and 1000 superchargers as per today though.

Well, every stop 'between cities' is in another city.

This one is 15 blocks from the most popular beach in California, near the end of I-10, five miles from the intersection of the 405 and the 10 freeways, and just a couple blocks off of CA 1. Santa Monica is at the north end of the LA basin along the seaside. Aside from a couple hills, the urbanized beach stretches for almost eighty miles to the south.

Not sure why they chose a major street for it, but it is easier to get the permits to build one supercharger than it is to get destination chargers placed in all the parking stalls. Alas.

That sounds like a top destination more than anything. 😊 But point taken in that a city might also be the charging point between to other cities depending on geography and range. Just wondered how common very urban superchargers were vs superchargers out on the plains, in transit-valleys, or at one-shop-places inbetween, like is common here. But I can say it sure is more to do at your superchargers like that😊 That could come in handy when charging an approx 250kWh CT battery.

Yeah, I would normally avoid Santa Monica if I were going to my Aunt and Uncle's, but with a charger like that, I might suffer the traffic.
