Well, the Texas Tesla factory should be cranking out Electric semis within a year. I bet one of the Motorhome integrators will be building a small Super C within a couple years after that. Should be interesting.
One of the challenges I see is the physical layout of the first generation super charger parking lots. I can see them dealing with maybe up to a 28 foot coach okay but think it may get dicey after that. The latest V3 Superchargers seem to sometimes include a few spots for vehicles towing so those would probably accommodate a smaller Super C. And if the battery’s are modular possibly even connect to V3’s at the same time.
So many changes to come. Much of it will be watching how China and Europe deals with and go from there. They are already getting crossing many of these infrastructure paths.
No idea really. Not an expert. Interesting though.
