Tesla to allow users to vote on new Supercharger locations – Not a Tesla App

The Tesla Charging Twitter account has taken a page out of Elon Musk’s social media strategy playbook. With more than 73 thousand followers, the account tweeted: Supercharger Voting coming soon. Reply with location suggestions — replies with the most likes will be included in the poll. The tweet has grabbed a lot of attention as suggested locations have been pouring in.
Tesla already has a vast network of Superchargers across the globe, and that grid is constantly expanding. The Tesla Charging account’s primary use is to announce openings of new supercharger locations worldwide. There are occasional retweets of someone’s observations at a site. But, it receives a countless number of suggested locations daily.
The account had thousands of responses within hours of pinning the tweet to the top of its profile. Many replies included screen grabs of maps showing distances between Supercharger locations. Some others show non-service or dead zone areas. There were also numerous responses of sites with chargers that were too busy. But, of course, with this on social media, there are plenty of different and humorous opinions. Ironically, one user wants a location at a place called Dodge City.
This tweet is on the heels of a report that Tesla received funding from the California Energy Commission’s Clean Transportation Program. As a result, Tesla will create 420 new stalls, including the world’s largest site. DriveTeslaCanada.ca reported that the approval places a 164-stall Supercharger hub in Coalinga, California. This location is along the I-5, one of the busiest interstates in the U.S.
Due to Tesla being the pioneer of electric vehicles, it already has thousands of charging locations. Until recently, those sites were exclusive to Tesla owners. But the company has been running a European pilot program allowing non-Teslas to charge at the companies Superchargers. It appears the inclusion of non-Teslas at Tesla Superchargers will soon be available in North America.
Twitter user Sawyer Merritt shared a short-lived glance at the program in August. It was a screen grab of the app showing a Supercharging membership plan that offered pay per use and a $0.99 monthly membership. Unfortunately, the information was only on the app for a few hours before being removed.
Tesla is ramping up Supercharger developments in several countries. A Tesla employee used his LinkedIn to promote the company is hiring Supercharger project managers in multiple locations in Canada.
Of course, the Tesla Charging Twitter account is public and can receive location nominations from Tesla owners, other EV owners and users who don’t have an electric vehicle. This kind of information will go a long way to improve the network and maybe be enough to convince the non-EV owner to switch.

Elon Musk is a busy guy, but he even takes time to play video games. The Tesla CEO told his 105.6 million followers on Twitter that he was playing games. But when you’re Musk, this is still working. He was testing the highly anticipated Steam integration with Tesla. It’s not known which one of the 30,000 Steam games he was playing (or should I say testing), but the fact that he is telling the world he is trying it out could mean the release is imminent.
Steam is to the PC gaming world what Tesla is to the electric vehicle market. With nearly 20 years under its belt, it’s estimated Steam takes up 75 percent of the global market share for the distribution of PC games. More than 100 million users are on the platform, and it is showing no signs of slowing down. In addition, it is releasing Steam Decks, a mobile device to take all of those games with you.
Tesla’s gaming does not quite compare to Steam, with about 20 games available, and most are classics. However, this integration could put Tesla’s gaming platform light years ahead. In fact, the new Model S and Model X have a gaming computer that keeps pace with PlayStation 5 and XBox Series X.
The new system has ten teraflops of processing power. A teraflop is the computer world’s version of horsepower, and yes, 10 is a lot. The PS5 has 10.28, and for those keeping score, the Playstation 4 has 1.84. For anyone who has played the two consoles, you can attest to noticing immediately the difference those additional 8 TFLOPS provide.
Musk wants the Tesla to be the most fun you can have in a car. By adding this kind of computer power to the Model S and Model X, he ensures that the system can handle the top-end video games. He has demonstrated the game considered the most graphically demanding, Cyberpunk 2077. These complex and visually stunning video games also occupy a lot of space. The average Steam user has 55 games on their account. However, it looks like Tesla has already started to solve these problems.
With Tesla update 2022.24 Tesla now lets you uninstall games from Tesla Arcade. There’s currently no need to uninstall a game because there’s ample storage, but that won’t always be the case.
Tesla has also started adding code to support external storage that could be used to load additional games.
The amount of storage available for games will vary depending on the MCU in the vehicle. While vehicles with MCU 2 only contain a 64GB hard drive for the entire vehicle (OS, games and data), newer vehicles with MCU 3 include up to a 256GB solid-state drive. Out of those 256GB, 155GB is currently reserved for games, so they’ll be able to store significantly more games before requiring an external hard drive.
While there is still no release date for the Steam integration, a big event is on the horizon for Tesla, AI Day Part II. The event was initially scheduled for August 19 but has been pushed back to September 30. Musk has promised “many cool updates” at AI Day; perhaps Steam integration will be one of them.
Elon Musk says that a FSD Beta update with “additional polish” is coming out in a few days.
Musk took to Twitter to announce that “10.69.2.1 [is] coming out in a few days with additional polish. 10.69.3 comes out shortly after AI Day.”
Additionally, Tesla will expand its beta program to additional users who have achieved a Safety Score of 80 or higher once version 10.69.2.1 is released.
FSD Beta 10.69.2.1 comes roughly one week after they rolled out version 10.69.2 to its 100,000 beta testers. Musk did not clarify how long after the update goes out will Tesla expand it to additional testers, but it could be in the next couple weeks..

Version 10.69.3, Musk says, will be released “shortly after” AI Day, but it’s not clear what improvements it will bring.
Tesla’s second AI Day is slated for September 30th and will feature “many cool updates,” according to Musk. During the event, the automotive company is expected to share details about Full Self-Driving Beta, their new self-driving chip and the Dojo supercomputer, and hopefully updates on its Robotaxi program and FSD HW4.
There’s a chance that Tesla may also talk about its recent work on Steam gaming integration in its vehicles.
Finally, and perhaps the most exciting part, Tesla is expected to show off a working prototype of its Tesla bot known as Optimus.
