Tesla’s Elon Musk says network of electric car superchargers will enable cross-country drives

Elon Musk, CEO and founder of Tesla Motors, said a network of electric vehicle “superchargers” would enable EV owners to drive from New York City to Los Angeles.

Musk said this network of fast-charging stations would be in place by the end of 2013. Tesla Motors’ own network of charging stations consists of nine locations — seven of which are in California, according to Reuters.

Telsa Motors’ previous goal was to build a total of 100 electric vehicle charging stations by 2015.

Musk said owners of a Telsa Model S would be able to charge their vehicle batteries at these stations at no cost, in roughly an hour.
