Tesla Model S
Marcus Hotels & Resorts, a division of The Marcus Corporation, announced that it decided to install Tesla High Power Charging Stations for Tesla Model S electric cars at the majority of its owned and managed properties across the United States.
The Tesla EVSE installs should be ready for the summer. Taking into consideration that it will enable "up to 58 miles of range to the Model S in just one hour," the units will certainly be 20 kW units.
Brian Burton, vice president, revenue generation for Marcus Hotels & Resorts commented:
“We are always finding new ways to enhance our guests’ overall experience. By combining the leading-edge technology and the forward-thinking of Tesla with our commitment to providing an exceptional experience for our guests, we now have the ability to offer a high-tech, eco-friendly solution for Model S owners traveling this summer."
“Imagine the ability to travel across the country using only our hotels’ connectors and Tesla’s growing infrastructure of Superchargers. Tesla customers can go from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, Minneapolis to Madison, Lake Geneva to Milwaukee, and Chicago to Atlanta. Owners driving all day can stop at one of our hotels to recharge overnight and be on their way again in the morning. Or, guests can charge their car for a few hours, while enjoying a drink or bite to eat in our popular lounges and restaurants while they wait. Driving a luxury car deserves a luxury experience, and we are pleased to provide that high quality experience to Tesla owners. It’s a win-win for everyone."
Cal Lankton, director of global EV infrastructure for Tesla stated:
“Thanks to our growing Supercharger network, Tesla Model S owners are hitting the road in increasing numbers. By offering convenient destination charging services to Tesla owners, Marcus Hotels & Resorts is replicating the convenience our owners have become accustomed to at home. Waking up relaxed with a fully charged Model S makes for a fantastic road trip experience.”
