Tesla Superchargers are the first charging stations placed between city centers to enable long distance driving in an electric vehicle and offer the most powerful electric vehicle (EV) charging technology to date. Tesla has placed charging stations at natural stopping points for long-distance travel, including coffee shops, outlet centers and hotel parking lots. The Superchargers currently work with Tesla Model S, the company’s most recent vehicle and the world’s first premium electric sedan.

About Tesla Supercharger Stations
Tesla first revealed the locations of the first six Supercharger stations on September 24th. These first superchargers will enable Model S to travel long distances throughout California, parts of Nevada and Arizona with ultra-fast charging. Superchargers can give road trippers half a charge in about 30 minutes. Supercharging provides Model S owners free long distance travel indefinitely. Overtime, each station will be connected to a solar power system designed to generate more energy than is consumed by vehicles using the Supercharger. This results in a positive transfer of sunlight-generated power back to the electricity grid.
