Telsa SuperChargers & Tesla stations
Charge in minutes, for free
Tesla Superchargers allow Model S owners to travel for free between cities along well-traveled highways in North America and Europe. Superchargers provide half a charge in as little as 20 minutes and are strategically placed to allow owners to drive from station to station with minimal stops.
Today – 76 stations
Coast-to-coast travel now enabled
2014 – 80% of the US population and parts of Canada
2015 – 98% of the US population and parts of Canada
Today – 14 stations
Superchargers are located near amenities like roadside diners, cafes, and shopping centers. Road trippers can stop for a quick meal and have their Model S charged when they’re done.
A Tesla Station is the second version of the Tesla supercharger station that is provided by Tesla Motors to support owners of Tesla automobiles with proprietary charging station services, and will be able to support both battery pack swaps as well as fast recharging of the Tesla Model S electric vehicle battery packs.
The existing Tesla supercharger stations allow Tesla owners to receive a free high-speed charge—less than an hour—at the network. As of mid January 2014, there are 74 stations operating in the United States and 14 in Europe. All existing Tesla supercharger stations would be converted to become Tesla stations, which would offer the battery-pack swap for the Model S in addition to the fast recharge capability for both the Model S and the Tesla Roadster.
