Rockford Register Star : Tesla unveils new electric car charging station in Cherry Valley

09/12/2013 4:00 PM

CHERRY VALLEY — An electric car magnet debuted today at CherryVale Mall where Tesla Motors unveiled a new free and fast electric car charging station.

More than a dozen Model S owners from the Midwest drove in for the christening and to see where they can get a quick recharge when they’re road tripping through Rockford.

Most electric cars are stuck in cities because they have limited range, but the Model S can go 265 miles on a full charge, and 150 more miles after a half-hour recharge at a Tesla Supercharger.

So Tesla is building a network of Superchargers, like the eight-bay station at the mall, so Model S owners will someday be able to drive cross country.

Just don’t bring your Chevy Volt orNissan Leaf. This charger is for Model S owners only.
