Tesla edges toward ‘Transcontinental’ status with new Supercharger stations in New Mexico and Chicago

Fasten your seatbelts people, we are a few Supercharger stations away from seeing a transcontinental Supercharging network as Tesla unceremoniously opened up a few charging stations this week.  The Gallup, New Mexico station goes a long way in connecting Southern California and Arizona with Colorado. While the Chicago-land area now counts 6 stations which can take Windy City residents as far as Wyoming (or California if they are extremely miserly on charge), down to St. Louis Missouri and as far East as Ohio.

Meanwhile, the East Coast is a few more stations away from being covered as well. Throw in an Albany NY, Washington DC and a Savannah GA station and you’d be able to get from Montreal to Miami without too much trouble.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is scheduled to make the cross country trek with his family in March. For more granular look at supercharging stations and opening dtes, construction and better mileage circles check out the Tesla Wiki.
