Tesla completes L.A.-to-New York Model S charging network

Musk: ‘Approx 80% of US population covered’

LOS ANGELES (Bloomberg) — Tesla Motors Inc.’s Elon Musk said the electric-car maker has expanded its U.S. network of rapid chargers to let owners of battery-powered Model S sedans drive their cars from coast to coast for the first time.

Musk, Tesla’s CEO and co-founder, said last year the company would set up “Superchargers” in most major U.S. and Canadian cities to permit long-distance trips solely on electricity provided at no charge.

The carmaker has more than 70 stations in North America, according to Tesla’s Web site.

“Tesla Supercharger network now energized from New York to LA, both coast + Texas!” Musk said in a Twitter post Sunday. “Approx 80% of US population covered.”

Tesla, seeking to be the world’s leading maker of all-electric autos, needs the broader network of charging stations to address the limited driving range and long charge times of battery cars.

Without the stations, Tesla drivers are limited by the estimated 265-mile (426-kilometer) range of a Model S battery, which can take as long as 9 hours to repower.
