As promised, Tesla has expanded its Supercharger network beyond California. As you might recall, Tesla's Supercharger stations can supply 150 miles of range to a Model S in only 30 minutes. After 30 minutes are up, the Supercharger continues as a high-speed charger, finishing up to full in about an hour. The new Superchargers now make it possible for owners to travel the 443 mile trip between Boston and Washington D.C. The two locations for the Superchargers are at rest stops in Milford, Conn. and Wilmington, Del. Future sites are planned, including some that run on solar power.

Tesla's plans are to put its Supercharging stations throughout the U.S. so that customers can drive across the country in their fully-electric cars. Tesla hopes that this offering will remove any range anxiety associated with EVs for Tesla owners.

      and should this work and telsa gets these chargin stations nationwide , that itself will bring billions ( if not trillions ) in for tesla in years to come when other manufactures end up havin to design and build their own electric car platforms around teslas , because we aren't goin to want to see a bunch of chargin stations nationwide rto suit individual manufacturers demands - although , in futuristic visions , i do see gas stations doubling as charging stations and eventually becomin chargin stations only , wonder if those Big oil guys will go for that ?

      So, when you need to "Fill up" you have to sit for a minumum of 30 minutes....if there is no line ahead of you. Good idea for those who go to work and back home that live with-in the range of the battery....But now, there are State Governments that want to charge a per mile tax to make up for the lost gasoline tax.....You can not beat the GREED of the Government.

        In Washington there is a $100.00 fee when licensing to cover road tax.

      One question I have is how far will they actually go if you have the Headlights, Air conditioner and radio going while you drive, And who goes 55 on the freeway now when speed limits are usually 65 and above. Ok, that was more then one question.

      I have a lot better things to do with my time. Todays electric cars are only good for around town and gfar to expensive. Buy a golf cart, much cheaper

      I congratulate Tesla on innovative engineering. I hope they succeed. If nothing else, they are pioneering much of the technology of the future.

      I can't speak for anyone else, but I know I cant afford a $60,000 car even with tax credits. Love the idea and love the Model S
      • 3 Days Ago
      The model S is listed as having a 300 mile range at 55mph. Why would they need 2 charging stations on a 443 mile route if it really gets 300 miles per charge? 145 miles from Boston to Milford, 195 from Milford to Wilmington, 111 from Wilmington to DC.

        Wow my car get close to 40 miles per gallon, and I pass by hundreds of gas station on a long trip.
        • 3 Days Ago
        DUH! If you start from Washington, and drive 300 miles, you get approximately to Milford. If you start from Boston, you get approximately to Wilmington. Seems kind of logical to me.

        Right now most charge stations are free. Major shopping centers have them. Remember only the super charge works on two or three battery pack vehicles. ( super charger adaptor must be purchased for the fast charge ) All other charging station take about one hour to give a charge equal to about 22 miles driving. Shopping center's are betting that you will shop while charging your batteries. Tesla charge stations are free but I don't know for how long.

      Hey, I've got a better idea.........lets improve the range of the battery itself.....the goal should be a battery that will go 250-300 miles on a charge and last at least 20,000 miles

        I've purchased a Tesla and expect to take delivery in June. I've added the third battery pack to get 300 miles on a charge. They are warranteed 8 years and unlimited milage.
