Auto major Tesla, in a first of its kind on the US terrain, has installed a network of superchargers across a number of American cities. This would finally aid Tesla Model S drivers to plan their drives across the US without ever bothering about running out of charge.
Until now, the Tesla Model S drivers had to limit their travel to a 265-mile range as batteries would have ran out by then. With the advent of this new supercharger network across the nation’s big cities, long-distance road trips in electric vehicles have turned out to be an exciting possibility.
These chargers in fact offer 170 miles of charge in just 30 minutes. And that too for zero cost. The networks is in such a way that there are 71 stations, are available more on the coasts than in the middle of the cities.
It is expected that the company would install more stations by the end of 2015, so that drivers can touch 98 percent of the 48 contiguous states and even parts of Canada, said an Inhabitat report.
The superchargers are located close to roadside inns, cafes and shopping spots so that the drivers can spent their time usefully even as the cars charge themselves.
