Tesla Superchargers Set Up On East Coast

December 29th, 2012 by  

Tesla has announced the locations of its first two supercharger electric vehicle charging stations on the US East Coast.

These charging stations allow Tesla Model S owners to charge for free, and in a relatively short 30-minute period.

The charging stations are located in Milford, Conneticut, and Wilmington, Delaware.

Tesla Motors eventually wants to set up a cross-country network of chargers that would enable Tesla Model S owners to drive from coast to coast, with some of them being solar-powered, too!

It is certainly cool that the nicest electric cars on the market come with this free service.

    Can a Volt owner charge here?

    • If I remember correctly, no, just for Tesla customers.

  • Pieter Siegers

    In one word: awesome! But I really am more looking forward to the moment that this type of service is in place for the rest of us! 🙂

  • It is such a shame, that Tesla, and other’s doing forward thinking things like this are thought of like “health nuts” back in the 50s….ah, well, another story of the grasshopper and the ant, huh?
