MISHAWAKA, Ind. – Tesla has opened charging stations in Angola and Mishawaka as it works to establish a network of such stops across the country for its electric cars.
The new charging stations for the Tesla Model S electric car opened Wednesday at University Park Mall in Mishawaka and at 3855 Indiana 127 in Angola.
Tesla officials said the stations can in 20 minutes give one of the cars enough battery power to travel up to 150 miles.
Tesla owner William Stonehill of Granger told the South Bend Tribune (http://bit.ly/18WeIjm ) he doesn’t expect to use the Mishawaka station, but its opening shows his car is becoming one he can take on longer trips.
Tesla spokeswoman Alexis Georgeson said stations will be in place this year so the cars can be driven between New York and Los Angeles.
