Tesla Taps Sun for Free Electric Car Fuel

•, Agence France-Presse
 Tesla Motors on Tuesday opened the first part of what it said would be a large network of stations that will provide free charges to its electric cars courtesy of the sun.

The company unveiled six Supercharger stations in California, where it is based, and disclosed plans for more to be located "in high traffic corridors" across the continental United States.

Tesla said it will begin installing Supercharger stations in Europe and Asia in the second half of next year. It promised to have more than 100 such stations running in the year 2015.

"Tesla's Supercharger network is a game changer for electric vehicles, providing long distance travel that has a level of convenience equivalent to gasoline cars for all practical purposes," said Tesla chief executive Elon Musk.

"We are giving Model S the ability to drive almost anywhere for free on pure sunlight."
