On Saturday last week I took a trip up to Normal on Amtrak Lincoln Service business class. I was on a mission to locate and record the Tesla Motors Model S Supercharger stations inside the Uptown Station parking garage.
Before I found the Tesla chargers – I came across these Eaton Level 2 Charging Stations. Just a bit after I started recording a local Mitsubishi i-MiEV tries to sneak past. I’m still not sure why the owner didn’t pull in and park at one the charging stations.
Normal Illinois is a big Mitsubishi i-MiEV supporter. Since the town has a Mitsubishi factory – the company has provided the city with several i-MiEV’s ( simply known as i here in the United States ).
At the beginning of the recording you can actually hear the Amtrak Lincoln Service I rode blow it’s horn as it’s leaving the station heading to Chicago.
