The plan of Elon Musk to drive across U.S. cannot be done till end of this year. Why so? It is because the till now, 'Tesla only has 19 Supercharger stations online in all of North America', according to the Wired . Musk plans to drive from LA to NY with his family. He wants to cover 3200 miles distance in 6 days. For this, he will surely need more Supercharging stations. He said in his tweet , "Just finalized the LA to NY family road trip route in Model S. 6 day, 3200 mile journey with only 9 hrs spent charging." 

Tesla has limited number of Supercharger stations online in the area where Musk wants to drive. So Musk has to wait till the Supercharger network will be expanded that is expected by the end of this year. However, Wired reports that a Tesla spokeswoman states that many more new stations are working in the area despite the 19 shown on the map. Supercharger network map needs updation as it was last updated in April. Also the firm will surely online many more stations before Musk and his family start their road trip.

That is why; Musk claimed in his tweet that he will spent only 9 hours in 6 days to recharge his electric car. He said in another tweet that, “At 1.5 hrs/day, we will only ever need to charge when stopping anyway [sic] to eat or sightsee, never just for charging itself.” 

It is a cool plan. We will surely wait to see Musk and his family travelling across U.S. Only then we can know that just 9 hours or some extra time will be spent in charging during the trip. Only time will tell that Musk claim are right or wrong about his Tesla Model S charging capacity.
