Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed on Twitter yesterday that the route from Los Angeles to New York is now covered with Supercharger fast-charge stations, allowing for coast to coast road trips in the Model S and future Tesla vehicles equipped with the fast-charging option.
Two teams drove from LA to New York over the weekend to highlight the completion of the coast-to-coast Supercharger stations.
Tesla has previously staged road trips in various parts of the country to prove the practicality of its fast charging stations. The eastern side of the US is covered, with Tesla customers able to drive from Washington, D.C. to Boston. Fast charging stations are also located along the western corridor, allowing for the Model S to make the journey from San Diego to Vancouver, British Columbia.
According to Tesla’s website, the company has plans to have most of the nation covered with Supercharger stations by the end 2015, just in time for the debut of its mass market model, which is expected to start at around $40,000.
