Tesla drivers only: Car maker creates its own ‘electric highway’ | Adventure & Exploration | – Portland News, Sports, Traffic Weather and Breaking News – Portland, Oregon

WOODBURN, Ore. – The nation’s electric vehicle infrastructure is expanding by leaps and bounds and car companies are doing everything they can to ride what, by all accounts, is the wave of the future.

Take Tesla Motors, for example, which just debuted the latest in their nationwide network of 19 Supercharger stations. On Thursday, Tesla cut the ribbon on a charging station in Woodburn, Ore., the first one in the state.

Washington state already has two of the stations (Tesla just recently opened one in Centralia and another in Burlington). And there are nine in California. A few more are scattered in other places across the United States. Tesla’s goal is to have around 200 of them across the nation by the time they are done.

Tesla’s Supercharger stations, which the company bills as the ‘fastest charging stations on the planet,’ cater to Tesla Model S owners. Drivers can stop, plug in and get a half charge in just 20 minutes – for free. It’s a perk for Tesla owners and the charging stations will only work for those vehicles. Right now, Tesla owners can travel between Vancouver, B.C. and Los Angeles, for example, using these Supercharger stations along the I-5 corridor and the trip wouldn’t cost them a dime (at least in mileage).
