California Tesla Model S in Springfield Illinois

Not best quality video. There was a truck in front of us when we were stopped. If we had made that light – would have missed recording Model S. I was on my way to Springfield Illinois Amtrak station that morning. This Tesla Model S had California plates. I’m not sure if it was an owner taking a cross country adventure. Or if it was a Tesla Motors employee heading to Springfield Illinois Superchargers.

If driver was driving to Superchargers – they were taking long route. It is faster – no driving through town or stop lights – to connect with Illinois I-72 from I-55. Then on I-72 take Exit 96 MacArthur Blvd. If you miss I-72 connection from I-55 – which is easy to do – you will have to drive through town on Sixth Street – make a left at light after going under underpass by shopping center – this puts you on Stanford overpass – drive until you reach light at MacArthur Blvd – make left turn – continue until you see Scheels on right.

Wish we would have had time to follow this Model S to Superchargers and chat with driver. But we were running late. Girlfriend tried rolling down window to help get a better shot – but car had passed by then.

Information on shopping and Level 2 electric car charging stations needs updated on page linked below.

Springfield Illinois Tesla Motors Superchargers

Closest Level 2 EV charging stations are at Hy-Vee in Springfield Illinois. Located on same road ( S. MacArthur Blvd. ) as Tesla Superchargers. These Level 2 chargers are just a short drive from Superchargers. These are ChargePoint chargers – require a ChargePoint subscription.

There is one Level 2 charger located across street from TGI Friday’s in Springfield. Charger is in front of Illinois Green Industry Association. It is free to use.

Nissan dealership listed as having Level 2 is correct. But that location is often ICED by gasoline vehicles. If you have ChargePoint subscription Hy-Vee charging stations are closer to Superchargers.

Memorial Medical Center parking garage in downtown Springfield Illinois also offers PEP level 2 charging stations. These are not free – require payment or subscription.

Illinois State Fair fairgrounds has a Schneider Electric Level 2 charger behind Illinois Dept. of Agriculture building. Not sure if public use is permitted.

Illinois Governor’s mansion in downtown Springfield Illinois also has chargers – again I’m not sure on public availability.

Springfield Electric on Ninth Street has a Level 2 charger. When I recorded it – it was secured and locked.
