Electric car company Tesla Motors says it’s now deployed 2,000 of its fast chargers at close to 400 Supercharger stations (380 according to the latest annual report). Tesla’s Superchargers can give Tesla cars 170 miles of range in 30 minutes, and the company doesn’t charge for the electricity. Tesla launched the network to help combat the perception that electric cars have limited vehicle range, as well as a way to give Tesla customers the perk of free charging. The company wants to expand the network by over 50 percent this year.
