Tesla’s New Supercharger in NYC

Tesla Motors, Inc. (TSLA – Analyst Report) has announced the opening of its first Supercharger station in New York. This new charging station will greatly benefit customers, who can charge their vehicles at the charging station free of cost. At the station vehicles will get fully charged within half an hour.

Tesla’s market penetration in New York is currently concentrated in Manhattan. However, the new Supercharger station is not situated in Manhattan. Tesla’s latest Supercharger station is located at the intersection of 150th Avenue and 147th Street in Queens, at a JFK Airport travel plaza. Nevertheless, it is the Supercharger closest to Manhattan, followed by the one in Darien, Connecticut, an hour’s drive from Manhattan.

Tesla supports this move reasoning that Superchargers are needed for long trips and not for daily charging. So the charging station is not built in Manhattan where daily charging can be managed at the normal electric charging stations built by the city.

A growing number of parking places in Manhattan now offer charging options, while the cheapest version of Tesla’s Model S provides 230 miles per charge. Thus, Tesla plans to build Superchargers between major cities and tourist destinations, to support long distance travel.
