Yesterday, we brought you this story about Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA). In short, we talked about an upcoming conference call during which CEO Elon Musk was going to make an announcement about the Tesla Supercharger Network.
While many waited anxiously to see what Tesla had up its sleeve, others wondered if the story would be worthwhile. At this point, we now know the answer.
According to the company’s official press release, Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) has plans to expand its supercharger network throughout both the United States and Canada. This will allow drivers to enjoy convenient and free long term travel, without worrying about where they are going to get their next charge.
Obviously, this is big news for Tesla, as well as its many owners, because it is one of the biggest concerns associated with all electric vehicles. While other car manufacturers continue to put this off on drivers, forcing them to figure things out on their own, Tesla has stepped to the forefront and realized it can jump in and make things better.
The Tesla Supercharger Network is going to expand upon what the company already has in place, which is a system that covers California and Nevada as well as Washington, DC all the way north to Boston.
The big question is this: what can Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) expect? Here is what the press release had to say about that:
“Triple the number of Tesla Supercharger stations by the end of next month, including additional stations in California, coverage of the northwest region from Vancouver to Seattle to Portland, Austin to Dallas in Texas, Illinois and Colorado. There will also be four additional eastern seaboard stations, expanding the density of the network to provide for more convenient stopping points.
Within six months the Tesla Supercharger network will connect most of the major metro areas in the US and Canada, including expansion into Arizona, additional stations in Texas, Florida, and the Midwest, stations connecting Ottawa to Montreal, and across North and South Carolina into Georgia. It will also be possible to travel diagonally across the country from Los Angeles to New York using only the Tesla Supercharger network.
A year from now, the Tesla Supercharger network will stretch across the continent, covering almost the entire population of the US and Canada. The expansion of the network will mean that Model S drivers can take the ultimate road trip — whether that’s LA to New York, Vancouver to San Diego, or Montreal to Miami – without spending a cent on fuel.”
If nothing else, you can see that Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is serious about its Supercharger Network. The company does not have any plans on leaving anybody out.
