Tesla plans to build 100 of its 'Supercharger' stations across the US by 2015. The number might be a bit high considering the chargers are only compatible with Model S sedans--of which Tesla has only built 255, according to OilPrice.com.
Tesla charging station offers 150-mile range after half hour of charging, roughly as fast as stopping for gas and a bathroom break. So far, there are six solar-powered Tesla charging stations, all in California.
Electric-car manufacturer Tesla says sales will be roughly $45 million for the third quarter, far below analysts' estimates of $80 million. Tesla will raise more money by selling 4.3 million shares of stock.
