Tesla opens first supercharger stations on the East Coast

Article by Christian A., on January 4, 2013

Owners of the Tesla Model S in the East Coast area rejoice at the opening of the first supercharger stations in the area. Tesla Motors said that the new chargers are located at the Milford Travel Plaza in Milford, Connecticut and the Delaware Welcome Center and Travel Plaza in Newark, Delaware. Model S owners who are driving in the Boston-to-Washington corridor can go to these new stations.

Tesla had set up the first supercharger stations in six locations all over California. Tesla Motors aims to give "free long distance driving” to Model S owners in the Northeast. Tesla Motors is planning to expand to more than 100 stations throughout the country by 2015.

Stopping at these stations for half an hour gives a charge that’s equivalent to about 150 miles or about three hours of drive time -- much faster than any other charging equipment on the market. The Model S is the only electric car that can use the stations since they’re not compatible with models like the Nissan Leaf.
