Free travel throughout the U.S. and Canada
Electric car manufacturer Tesla has announced a significant expansion of its Supercharger network. This enables Tesla Model S drivers to travel long distances, for free, indefinitely. In addition to expansion of the network itself, Tesla has improved the technology behind the Superchargers to significantly reduce the time it takes to charge – in some cases cutting charging time in half.
A year from now, the Tesla Supercharger network will stretch across the continent, covering almost the entire population of the U.S. and Canada. The expansion of this 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.
Co-founded by Elon Musk, Tesla Motors' goal is to accelerate the world's transition to electric mobility with a full range of increasingly affordable electric cars. The California-based firm designs and manufactures EVs, as well as EV powertrain components for partners such as Toyota and Daimler. Tesla has delivered more than 10,000 electric vehicles to customers in 31 countries. For more information, visit teslamotors.com.
