Tesla Motors announced the other day that it had “just opened a bunch of Superchargers to help us get closer to energizing our cross-country route!” The announcement came through twitter, as you can see in the tweet below.

If you follow the link provided, you get to the Tesla Supercharger page, where you can see that there are Supercharger routes up and down both the East & West Coast, as well as a wavy route across the US. Also, ironically, despite not being able to sell cars in Texas, there’s a strong patch of Superchargers in East Texas. Interesting… Here’s the current Tesla Supercharger map for North America:
Investing in these Superchargers, which are free to use for Tesla drivers, is of course a very costly endeavor. However, Elon Musk has noted on multiple occasions that their prime focus is not profit, but rather investing in future development (and customers). Investments in Superchargers and Model X development are sure to bring that a lot more customers, speed up the electric revolution, and benefit Tesla in the long term. I think they’re on a super solid path now.
