Tesla has expanded their network of Supercharger stations along the west coast’s I-5 corridor with two new stations opening this Thursday, July 18th in Washington state.
Supercharger stations are designed to provide 200 miles of driving range in only 20 minutes of charging time via a 120 kilowatt connection. These stations have been placed along high traffic corridors and near roadside shopping and refreshments to enable free long distance travel between city centers.
The new Burlington Station will have eight charging stalls, be open 24 hours a day and is situated about halfway between Vancouver, Canada and greater Seattle. The new Centralia Station will have ten charging stalls, be open 24 hours a day and is situated about halfway between Seattle and Portland, Oregon.
This brings the current total of free Supercharging stations to 14 nationwide. Tesla anticipates completing a seamless network of Supercharger stations along the west coast by the fall of this year and a coast to coast network is expected to be operational by the end of the year.
