Tesla Station to Bring Electric Cars to Rural Wyoming
LUSK, Wyo. (AP) — Tesla electric cars could soon be zipping over the remote plains of Wyoming.
Palo Alto, Calif.-based Tesla is building its first coast-to-coast network of quick-charge stations for its cars. The network will make it a lot easier for Tesla owners to drive across the country even though Teslas can't go more than 250-300 miles between charges.
Last month, Tesla installed four of its Supercharger units at a motel in the cattle-ranching town of Lusk.
A Supercharger enables a depleted Tesla battery pack to be recharged to 90 percent in 45 minutes. That's several times faster than any other charging option available for a Tesla.
Some Lusk residents say they'll be curious to see how other locals react to sleek and expensive Teslas showing up in their little town.
