Tesla Motors Inc Opens 100th U.S. Supercharger

100 US Superchargers And Counting(via supercharge.info)

Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA  ) is now celebrating the opening of Supercharger #100 in the U.S.A.

Okay, maybe that's not quite true.  We expect Tesla to officially announce the opening of Supercharger #100 in the US sometime soon, but we've got the jump on Tesla this time and can claim that Tesla's 100th US Supercharger, located in Tifton, Georgia is now operational.

That's quite a remarkable achievement for one automaker, especially when one considers that Tesla only began installing US Superchargers in September 2012.

Separately on Friday, Tesla announced that their Supercharging network had delivered more than 1 GWh of energy during just the month of June.  That number translates to roughly 3.7 million all-electric miles and 168,000 gallons of gas saved.

With each new supercharging station that comes online, the company further solidifies itself as an automaker not to be ignored, and strengthens the viability of its all-electric Model S that can not only travel from coast-to-coast using the stations, but soon to almost any area in the United States...just like a gas car.

Despite Its Official "Coming Soon" Status Online At Time Of Press, This Supercharger Has Been Confirmed To Be Online/Operational...So That's #100 For Tesla In The US.

If you recall, Tesla celebrated the opening of it 100th Supercharger worldwide some 3 months ago with much fanfare in Hamilton Township, New Jersey.

Now, there are 100 Superchargers in operation in the U.S.A alone.  Worldwide, the tally for Tesla Superchargers is now at 137.

    And if BMW and Nissan capitalize on Tesla sharing patents, the Supercharger network could expand even faster. Imagine future i3 and Leaf fleets using Tesla's plug but requiring 2-3x the stations due to their range being 1/3 of Tesla's. Tesla owners benefit from rapid expansion bankrolled by BMW and Nissan. Win-win!
