New car charging station opens in Mishawaka


Tesla Motors opened a new Supercharger station in Mishawaka, Wednesday, at University Park Mall.  The Supercharger will allow Tesla Model S electric vehicles to recharge in 20 to 30 minutes and travel about three hours.

Tesla Motors Communications specialist, Alexis Georgeson says they designed these charging stations to be convenient for users.  "Super fast charging technology," Georgeson said, "just pull in, plug in, we put them in these malls, near restaurants so people can stop quickly and get a bite to eat and get back on the road."

This is the first of five Tesla Supercharger stations slated to open in Indiana. This Mishawaka location will support free, cross-country travel, connecting New York and Los Angeles by the end of the year.
