Tesla Motors Brings First Tesla Supercharger to Arizona, Enables Free Long-Distance Travel for Model S Owners.

Tesla Motors November 12, 2013

Tesla Motors, the California-based maker of the award-winning Model S electric sedan, is expanding its Supercharger network with the opening of the first Arizona Supercharger station in Quartzsite on Thursday, November 14th.  The Supercharger station is conveniently located along Interstate 10 to enable free long distance travel for Model S owners.  This is the first of seven Tesla Supercharger stations slated to open in Arizona. Paired with the Indio, CA station (opening soon) this Quartzsite location will support free travel between Phoenix and Los Angeles.

Superchargers are designed for city to city travel, allowing Tesla Model S electric vehicle drivers to travel for about three hours, take a 20 to 30 minute break, and get back on the road charged up.

A press conference and ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at the new Quartzsite Supercharger. Dozens of Tesla owners and their cars will be in attendance.

Tesla Superchargers allow Model S owners to travel for free between cities along well-traveled highways in North America. The Tesla Supercharger is substantially more powerful than any charging technology to date, providing up to 120 kilowatts of power and replenishing half a charge in twenty minutes.

Supercharger stations are strategically placed to allow owners to drive from station to station with minimal stops. Stations are located near amenities like roadside diners, cafes, and shopping centers so road trippers can stop for a quick meal and have their Model S charged by the time they’re done.
