Tesla details Supercharger expansion, NYC to LA road trips possible by year's end

Tesla’s perpetually free Supercharger station has already enabled the driving of about a million miles, totally free, to owners of the Model S sedan. However, availability of that network has been very limited. Unless you lived in very specific areas of NY or CA, you’ve been out of luck. That’s beginning to change. Following up on Elon Musk’s D11 appearance, Tesla has announced that by the end of next month it will triple the size of the Supercharger network, covering crucial routes like Vancouver to Portland (with Seattle in between) and Dallas to Austin. New connection points will open in Illinois, Colorado, New York and, yes, California.

But wait, there’s more. Within six months the network will spread further and, before the end of the year, Tesla promises you’ll be able to drive from New York to Los Angeles in your Model S — so long as you don’t mind stopping for 20 minute recharges every couple-hundred miles. Finally, by mid-2014, Tesla promises its network will “stretch across the continent” and cover “almost the entire population of US and Canada.” (Sorry, Hawaii.) PR and video featuring more details after the break.
