Hi, Friends & Visitors/Viewers/Readers,
(please click on red links below)
But right now, I am so excited about Tesla’s Supercharger that I’ve got to share this pieces of news/clip I’ve just received with you! Apparently, on Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2012, the U.S. auto maker Tesla (specializing in electric cars), just opened a large network of service stations that provides free charges from the sun for their electric cars. The company Tesla Motors unveiled six stations called Supercharger (west) where it is based and will open more in high traffic corridors throughout continental USA. Tesla also indicated that Supercharging stations will be installed in Europe and Asia during second half of 2013, aiming to have more than 100 such stations in operation by 2015 and covering all of USA and lower part of Canada within 4-5 years. Take a look at this clip, below:
“The Tesla Supercharger network is a game changer for electric vehicles, offering long distance travel with a comfort level equivalent to that of gasoline cars in practical terms,” said Tesla CEO, Elon Musk. “We are giving the (auto) Model S’s ability to travel almost anywhere for free with pure sunlight.” The electricity used by stations Supercharger is generated by solar systems designed for more power to be used by cars, the company said. The Supercharger is able to charge to about 100 kW (perhaps even up to 120 kW in the future, translating to long distance driving of up to about 3 hours and stop to recharge for 30 minutes and be ready to go again). Right now, one can drive almost any where using free power from the sun in California. Soon, the Supercharging stations will also become available to a location near you! Supercharging station will actually be able to produce more energy than it uses, therefore, be able to put excess energy into local power grid for general use.
The company, founded by Musk, co-founder of PayPal and SpaceX, in 2003, has a factory in Fremont, in northern California. Tesla sports car sold in more than $ 100,000 and launched its Model S at an initial price of USD 49 900. Without an internal combustion engine or transmission tunnel, the Model S has more cargo space than any other sedan, and includes a second trunk under the hood. This car reaches 100 mph in just 4.4 seconds, and includes an in-dash touch screen, Internet access, allowing listening to the radio and getting round navigation instructions from the web.
This is fantastic news! I will look forward to all future electric cars being able to run on free power/fuel from the sun and Supercharger possibly even supply some more energy for our power grid. The future is looking brighter all the time!
