Tesla Superchargers Coming To Downtown Las Vegas
» filed under Las Vegas tagged: tesla electric cars comments: 5
Tesla Motors announced a broad initiative earlier this year to construct a network of electric superchargers that would enable drivers of their all-electric vehicles to drive throughout the U.S. and Canada, for free, forever. As of today, the closest Supercharger to Las Vegas is located about 170 miles away - behind the Chili's restaurant south of Barstow in Lenwood CA.
Superchargers enable Tesla drivers to charge batteries roughly 20 times faster than standard public charging stations, replenishing 200 miles of range in roughtly 30 minutes.
The City of Las Vegas has approved construction of a bank of six Tesla Superchargers to be located at 701 E. Bridger Avenue, just blocks away from the intesection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street. Entrance to the parking garage is on 8th street, north of Bridger.
It is unclear whether these Superchargers will be accessible to the public or are for private usage by Downtown Project's fleet fleet of 100 Tesla Model S purchased in April. Tesla's Supercharger map shows a Las Vegas Supercharger is Coming Soon.
Other chargers in Las Vegas and points south towards Los Angeles include 4 at the Zappos campus, 2 at 6th and Bridger, 6 solar powered chargers at Clark County Center, 2 at Palazzo (ask at Valet), 1 at Bellagio, 2 Tesla chargers at Cosmopolitan, 1 at Mandarin, Aria and Crystals (ask Valet to charge car), 1 at Tesla Service Center 6260 West Badura Avenue and 2 at Whiskey Pete's in Primm.
