Tesla Supercharger occupied by Dodge 4×4 pickup that identifies ‘as a Prius’



One of the greatest things about owning a Tesla is your Supercharger Network, which permits EV owners to take long trips in a convenient and affordable way. It might then be quite an inconvenience if you were to use a Supercharger and its charging plug turns out to be covered in soot. 

Regrettably, some Tesla owners probably experienced something similar lately, as an image of what seemed to be a lifted Dodge 4×4 pickup truck occupying a Supercharger booth made the rounds at EV community collections on the internet. Common on Twitter from @TheTeslaLife, the picture depicted a Supercharger cable being “connected” to the tailpipe of this 4×4 pickup truck, with almost the entire plug being put within the soot-filled cavity. 

What could be done to reduce ICEing similar to this at public EV charging websites? What should you do? What have you noticed being done? Any suggestions to add @OEVAorg? pic.twitter.com/VmLRKkDvPm

The place where the incident happened was not mentioned in the social networking posts concerning the event, although the Tesla-themed group failed to label the Oregon Electric Vehicle Association (OEVA) within its tweet.

Granted, the picture might have just been the effect of a joke. The pickup truck driver does appear to have a pretty good sense of comedy, as hinted at with way of a bumper sticker that read “I Identify as a Prius. ” That being said, even such a bumper sticker falls apartment in justifying what occurred to the Tesla Supercharger. 

Priuses, after all, can’t bill at Superchargers, and many of those don’t even have plugs. The Dodge 4×4 pickup’s owner can thank Toyota’s & “self-charging hybridvehicle & rdquo; push for it. 

The Dodge pickup owner’s Supercharger joke, though indeed it was one, probably caused some inconvenience to a unsuspecting Tesla owner who finished up using the charging booth after during the afternoon. Such a thing would probably happen to be a pretty cluttered event, requiring a great, long hand-washing session or several sanitary wipes.

Several EV-trolling behaviours would probably be considered extremely annoying when performed against vehicles with an internal combustion motor. The tradition of ICE-ing, or blocking an electric automobile ’s charging channel , could probably trigger tempers to flare if blocked petrol pumps have been involved. Accidentally holding a gasoline pump which ’s caked with grime due to a joke will probably be received well, possibly.
