The site currently shows 23 stations are open across the country. Tesla plans to add more, and by early next year have enough stations so Model S owners can drive coast-to-coast with short charging stops.
Superchargers are high-speed charging stations that in 30 minutes can replenish the Model S' batteries with enough juice to travel up to 200 miles. All Model S cars with the 85-kilowatt-hour battery have supercharger compatibility at no cost, while it's optional on the 60-kwh Model S. The technology for recharging batteries is proprietary — i.e., Tesla Model S only — so you can't drive in with a Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus Electric or other EV, including the Tesla Roadster, and fill 'er up.Related
