With Tesla’s stock currently through the roof and promising sales figures for its hallmark Model S vehicle, Elon Musk must now convince his electric car converts that they’ll actually be able to, you know, get around.
Last night, Musk laid out Tesla’s plan to expand the company’s Supercharger network — one of the first big steps to make Musk’s transportation revolution a practical reality and today, the company has provided us with a handy map. Currently, there are only eight Supercharger stations — which provide about half a charge in 20 minutes and are free to Model S Users — however Musk has plans to cover 98% of the US and Canada by the end of 2015.
While Musk’s plan may look overly ambitious, this kind of coverage is crucial for Tesla, which plans to sell 21,000 Model S’s this year alone.
