Tesla promises free solar-powered travel with new ‘Supercharger’ tech


Electric car manufacturer Tesla Motors announced Monday that it will roll out a network of solar-powered charging stations across the United States over the next two years, enabling owners of the company’s all-electric “Model S” vehicles to “travel for free, forever, on pure sunlight.”

Appearing at an unveiling event Monday in Hawthorne, California, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the same creative force behind PayPal and SpaceX, said the company’s new charging technology is an important advancement in human history because it could soon free zero-emission vehicles from limited areas of operation.

More importantly, he said the company’s “Superchargers” add 150 miles to a car’s range in just 30 minutes — a dramatic improvement over other current vehicle charging technology.




While it will be some time before this becomes ready for the mass market, it shows a positive direction for automotive technology. Musk has already established himself as a futurist with his involvement in SpaceX.

lets hope this doesn't get shelved or purchased by the government before it is rolled out. Looks like a good plan. Just have to hope that chemtrials don't ruin the charging ability of the sunshine.
