The brand new V3 Supercharger station features a massive 56 stalls, complete with a convenience store and restaurant on site, although the amenities are not yet open.
According to Tesla Owners East Bay, one of their members Teresa K. made the discovery completely by accident. After topping up her red Tesla Model 3 at Kettleman City, Teresa travelled north along Interstate 5. Fortunately for Teresa, her dog apparently drank too much and nature was calling, forcing her to stop. Much to her surprise, she discovered the 56-stall Supercharger lit up and ready to charge.
Teresa was the very first person to charge at the new station and had the entire place to herself, with the exception of two Tesla Energy vehicles from workers on site.
The Firebaugh Tesla Supercharger is located at 46272 West Panoche Road off Interstate 5, making it a prime location for those travelling between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The location also puts it just 1 hour and 15 minutes to the north of the famous Kettleman City Supercharger, formerly the largest Supercharger station in the US with 40 stalls (tied with Daly City and Baker, California).
Firebaugh won’t be the largest Supercharger station in the world for very long. In China, Tesla is currently building a 64-stall Supercharger station at Giga Shanghai.
