At the Detroit Auto Show this past week, car manufacturer Tesla had nothing but good news about where the company is and where it is heading. While the luxury Model S car costs over $70,000, they are becoming increasingly popular across the United States. The company said that there are already more than 25,000 of these vehicles on the road since they began commercial sales in June 2012. Tesla's founder, Elon Musk, said the company is very close to finishing a network of supercharger stations that will span the entire country.
The supercharger stations being built by Tesla will form a chain that will go from Connecticut down the entire East Coast and across the middle of the country all the way to Los Angeles. Vice President of worldwide sales and service Jerome Guillen says that once the weather improves they will fix the gaps in their system by adding stations in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Arizona. The good news for owners of these cars is that the Model S can travel 300 miles on a full charge.
Despite a recent recall over car charges that needed upgrading, Tesla recently saw a 10 percent spike in their share price, as most investors are happy with the strong development of the company. Tesla's executives said at a press conference that their ultimate goal of 2014 is to sell at least 40,000 Model S vehicles. The company touts how safe the car is as the ones currently on the road have driven over 168 million miles without a single fatality.
John C. Flood has begun selling and installing high powered wall connectors for owners of the Model S Tesla vehicle. While this technology is new, it can charge your car at a rate of 60 mph and will have a substantial environmental impact.
