Tesla Expands Supercharger Network Nationwide

Tesla, the electric car company is planning on diversifying its network of supercharger stations. This will be carried out to the extent of spreading their existence throughout the United States and Canada. A nationwide network is definitely in the making and will revolutionize the experience of road trips.

The CEO of Tesla Motors announced the expansion of Supercharger network so that consumers of Tesla S could drive the length and breadth of the US and Canada for free. Already tripling in financial prosperity, Tesla is expected to set up several solar powered charging stations from coast to coast. It means that anyone can drive an electric car from New York to Los Angeles and the trip won’t cost him a single penny. The only thing is that the car has to be a Model S Sedan. More will be revealed later on in a conference. The diversification of the stations is to be looked into seriously for without such a measure the cars can only go so far. The CEO mentioned that drivers wanted the exhilarating feeling of freedom while traversing the roads. And they wanted to cruise without any hassles or worries. At present the charging capacity was not enough to fulfill some of the dreams of the consumer base.

Less than ten stations were set up and the company expects to have around a hundred within two years time.

Over a billion dollars of monetary input was already pumped through the economic framework of the organization. The experiment in electric cars has been a success of sorts. With a recharged Model S car you may travel constantly for eight hours on a 240 volt system. In the future, the routes will get more complex as Interstate 90 and Interstate 75 figure in the terrain these electric cars cover by road. While not exactly as simple as a gas-powered car, the electricity-driven vehicles nevertheless are the wave of tomorrow for fossil fuels are at an all-time low nowadays. Peak oil has already occurred and even coal and gas supplies are undergoing depletion at a fast pace.

The basic goal of Tesla Motors is to make driving electric cars feel as natural as getting into a gas guzzler. Electricity is also a much cleaner source of energy than fossil fuels since it doesn’t cause much pollution. The superchargers that will power the cars will eventually become so cheap to produce that a vast network of crisscrossing stations will grow all over the country. Cars will change as regards what goes inside them yet the driving experience will remain the same.
