The three newest DC fast charge stations in Southern Oregon (Roseburg, Grants Pass, Medford, all Chargepoint stations) are all single-plug CCS Combo stations, which is why I asked. Granted the Rogue Valley, at around 200,000 people, is not a huge population area that needs DC fast charging every large parking lot, but the decision to put in a single CCS Combo plug seemed like a significant change.

It's extremely surprising that these latest combo stations mentioned also don't seem to have a level 2 plug as well. This has always been the norm, and saved my ass in the earlier days with flakey Chademo chargers with my Leaf. Maybe this is a sign of more reliable chargers. Maybe it's a sign of not learning from the past.

And Cottage Grove! That's Oregon's I5 corridor completed!

So far a bunch of the southern Oregon/Northern CA ones don't have any confirmed CCS users (via Plugshare). If anybody has a chance to use them, it would be super helpful if you could update Plugshare. I'm itching for a road trip as the I-5 corridor is finally being populated in Northern CA as well, and some confirmed functioning units would be a big confidence booster!

Me too! And I need to do some coastal touring too. When I get that close to an ocean I have to do a ceremonial dip!

I may be working in Salem for a few weeks coming up and I'm considering renting this:https://turo.com/car-rental/portland/nissan-leaf/42010
I'll fly into PDX and uber to the Leaf, then ~60 miles to Salem, with available charging on the way!

I found turo when I saw a post somewhere about renting a Tesla

I can look for myself but;
Is this 'I-5 corridor' using combo DCFC stations?
How far north in to Washington can you go?
How close and how far can you go on the coastal roads?

I may play it safe and rent a cheap Prius C....

we have plenty of ChaDeMo chargers in western Oregon and Washington, no problem doing the I5 corridor and the coast. And you want to see the coast here, it is world class.

Hopefully we'll see a CCS midway between Portland and Seattle, that will really stick the I5 corridor together. Then maybe one between Seattle and Vancouver BC.

I tend to use Chargepoint rather than Plugshare, but I see the one at the Fred's nearest me in Medford has been updated. If I make it to Grants Pass soon I will update that one.

We've added another CCS in Portland, this one is at the Lloyd Center shopping mall garage.
