Model S Connected to Supercharger
CBL & Associates Properties announced the launch of a partnership with Tesla Motors to install Supercharging stations at several CBL Malls across the country.
Initial plans call for the installation of Superchargers at five CBL Malls:
- Gulf Coast Town Center in Fort Myers, FL
- The Pavilion at Port Orange in Port Orange, FL
- Alamance Crossing in Burlington, NC
- CherryVale Mall in Rockford, IL
- Imperial Valley in El Centro, CA
Supercharger Locations by Summer 2013
"CBL is pleased to be one of the first national mall developers to enter into a long-term partnership with Tesla. We are very excited to bring this amenity to our customers and the surrounding community,” said Jim Ward, Vice President of Brand Development for CBL. “We are confident that Tesla owners will appreciate the convenience of charging their vehicles at our well-located shopping centers that serve as the hub for shopping, dining, and entertainment in their communities."
As we know from previous reports, Superchargers allow Tesla owners to travel for free and can provide around half a charge in about 20 minutes.
By the end of the summer, Tesla will have have roughly 25 Supercharger stations (3 times today's number) and, by the end of the year, it will be possible to go from coast to coast along the Supercharging network.
