The first-ever Tesla Supercharger station that accepted Dogecoin as payment is available now in Santa Monica, California. Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, confirmed that there will be no 50’s diner or drive-in movie theater as he planned before. However, he said that the company planned to add them to a different Supercharger facility in Hollywood.
The new Supercharger is located in 1421-1425 Santa Monica Boulevard, which is one of two lots Tesla purchased for the project. The second location is at 1401 Santa Monica Boulevard. The first one is technically the supplemental lot for the project. The moment it is completed, it will house a total of 26 Superchargers. A Model Y owner and Los Angeles resident Ryan Zohoury took a photo of the new lot, which looks very similar to the blueprints that Tesla submitted to the Santa Monica City Council last year.

There will be a full-service restroom available on this lot. It is going to be in an already-built structure that the company started to renovate.
And futuristic diner / drive-in theater planned for Hollywood area!

Since he is a vocal proponent of both Doge and Bitcoin, Musk said that the Santa Monica Supercharger will officially accept Dogecoin as payment. He previously hinted toward bringing Doge as payment for different parts of Tesla’s business. One day it will accept crypto as a form of payment for its vehicles
Tesla added specially-sized parking spaces to its fresh Supercharger. The majority of the spaces are 9-foot width, but some are 12 feet, which maybe will be for Cybertrucks.
