Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could drive your Tesla Model S all the way from San Diego to Vancouver?
Now you can! Tesla Motors has completed that Supercharger corridor for that 1,400 mile route, increasing the total number of functional Supercharger charging stations in the United States to 31.
Unlike average companies, which entice you to buy a product and then stop supporting it, Tesla Motors leaves its competition behind by continuing to make the Tesla Model S better than ever with automatic software updates and improved charging infrastructure.
Tesla even hopes to reduce charge time for its Supercharger stations to 10 minutes. On the way there, they were just recently upgraded to 20 minutes.
Tesla also prepared for the future well in advance by enabling its charging stations to charge up to 8 vehicles at a time (the option to charge 8 is only available in busier locations).
Within the last month, Tesla Motors activated Californian charging stations in Corning (California), Mount Shasta (California), and Grants Pas (Oregon).
Tesla is far from done with the development of its Supercharger network. It is reportedly next working on making trips between Phoenix and Vancouver possible, while also working to improve the connections between the key Los Angeles and San Francisco markets.

In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
