We sit down with Alexis Georgeson from Tesla Motors to discuss the future of supercharging.
What would be Tesla’s goal for the future of Supercharging?
AG: Tesla installs Superchargers on major corridors connecting city centers. Tesla is continuing to expand the Supercharger network to provide free, convenient long distance travel for Model S owners. Our goal is to enable customers to drive their Model S wherever they wish to go; between Boston and Miami, LA and New York, or Vancouver to Phoenix- with ease and convenience.
How many more Supercharging stations are planned for the state of Florida?
AG: We plan to have a total of seven Supercharger stations open in Florida by the end of the year.
Are there more planned dealer/service networks in 2014-15 within the state?
We are always looking for new store locations where we have the opportunity to engage and educate people about Model S and service locations where we can better attend to our customers and make convenience a priority. However I can't speak to specific locations at this time.
With the quick change battery option, will that be offered at selected locations for owners?
AG: Yes, battery swapping will be available at Supercharger locations.
How do you see the future of battery and recharging when it comes to vehicle range?
AG: At the core of Tesla is a technology company that will continue to innovate and push the boundaries for vehicle and battery technology.
