The more expensive model includes an 85 kWh battery with a travel range of 265 miles on a single charge (According to EPA standards). It starts at just under 100,000 dollars.
Tesla’s Evolving Super Charger Network
The Tesla S tops the charts, and easily defeats the competition due to its incredible travel range. But, on top of that, Tesla is building an unprecedented network of charging stations across America, Europe, and Asia.
The first section of the super charger network corridor opened in October of 2012. It consists of six charging stations connecting San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, and Los Angeles. In December of 2012 the second charging network was installed, connecting Washington DC, New York City, and Boston.
As great as this news is, it only gets better. Tesla has announced that these charging stations will always be free of charge to Tesla owners. The charging stations will be powered by solar panels, adding another green feather to Tesla’s already ecofriendly reputation.
