The agreement will see 26 different Superchargers installed at Buc’ee’s locations across Texas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee.
Buc’ee’s has the world’s largest gas station and convenience store in New Braunfels, Texas, and it was discovered last week this location would be getting Tesla Superchargers, reports CleanTechnica.
This was exactly a year ago, when a Tesla rep met with our club and asked us where we would like superchargers. Our members all suggested @bucees . Fast forward a year& Tesla has pulled permits to build superchargers at Bucees! Thanks @Tesla @elonmusk for making this a reality! https://t.co/jFplrCBnXI

The decision by Tesla to install Superchargers at Buc’ee’s was likely impacted by the feedback provided from Tesla owners in Texas, when representatives from the automaker met with the Tesla Owners Club of Austin in the fall of October 2020.
With Tesla moving its headquarters to Texas and also Gigafactory Austin set to go online soon, it would only make sense for the automaker to partner with Buc’ee’s for Superchargers, as the store chain’s headquarter are based in Lake Jackson, Texas.
