Steve loves his electric car. He says that it goes like a rocket and looks like a Lamborghini. Steve’s 400-horsepower electric car has a 50-mile range running on batteries only. When he is going to Phoenix or San Diego, his generator produces enough power to recharge batteries. The solar panel sunroof powers the cooling system and fan. On the way down hill, the tires’ spinning charge the batteries.
The power will be supplied by the local utility company, and Tesla will pay for electricity and all operating cost.
According to Tesla’s spokeswoman Alexis Georgeson, the company is focused on offering free long distance travel to the drivers of electric cars across the country.
Yuma will be one of the charging stations on the cross-country route between Los Angeles and New York, which will be completed by the end of this year.
With superchargers, Tesla’s Model Selectric vehicleallows drivers to drive for three hours, take a half hour break for lunch or coffee, and have their car all charged up and ready to keep going.
Georgeson explains that Tesla Superchargers are by far the world’s most powerful charging technology. They can charge Model S twenty timesfaster than the public charging stations.
Yuma already has two 240V plugs for electric vehicles in the City Hall parking lot. All are available free of charge. They were donated to the city in 2011 by Chrysler Corporation, when the car maker was testing its electric vehicles.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
