Tesla have rolled out in the US, Europe and China a number of supercharger stations that provide about a half charge in 20 mins. They are always FREE for Tesla owners.
In a Tesla Model S that means you can travel a further 240kms from a depleted battery. So a coffee and bite to eat and you’re on your way. The superchargers tend to be located near roadside diners, cafes and shopping centres. “Select stations utilize canopies covered with solar panels to offset energy use and provide shade. Over the next few years, we plan to cover more stations in sunny locales with solar canopies as part of our commitment to the environment.” (Tesla Motors)
If 20 mins is too slow the battery swap system will have you on your way with a full charge in about 90 seconds!
