Last summer, Elon Musk announced
the Tesla Supercharger network
--strategically placed, solar powered fast chargers for Model S
owners across California. Musk also noted Tesla would continually add stations until customers could complete a coast to coast trip using only plug-in power. Since then, every few months they have been updating
us with new station locations. And now we have a few more to add.
Tesla's vice president of worldwide sales George Blankenship announced on the Inside Tesla
blog that, over the next four months, the electric carmaker will be adding Superchargers in the "Pacific Northwest, Texas, Illinois, and Florida with additional Superchargers coming to the Northeast and California." Also, existing locations will receive expansions. For example, the Harris Ranch location in California will get five more Superchargers to help with demand.
And, apparently more Tesla news is on the way.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk sent out a tweet
yesterday indicating a surprise announcement to come this Thursday, March 28 (later adjusting the date to Tuesday, April 2
). We aren't sure exactly what it could be, but stay tuned for more info.
We'll just have to wait until
Tuesday to find out for sure.
