Tesla now completes its charging network between New York and LA

Bloomberg report on the news that Tesla now has the infrastructure necessary to drive an electric car between New York to LA:

The Superchargers, currently compatible only with the Model S, provide 170 miles of range in a 30-minute charge, according to the company. The cheapest version of the Fremont, California-built car enabled to work with the Superchargers costs $73,070, according to Tesla’s website.

While filling up might only take a few minutes and get you much more range, 30 minutes for 170 miles is pretty damn impressive, and is much better than most other electric vehicles which don’t offer any quick charge option.

Love it or hate it, the battery-powered electric car is becoming an ever more feasible alternative to a petrol-powered vehicle.
