You Can Now ‘Super Charge’ Your Tesla on the Lower East Side

Posted on: August 23rd, 2018 at 5:06 am by

In case you happen to own a Tesla, then charging it up just got a bit easier.

Elon Musk’s trendy automaker recently expanded super-charging capabilities throughout Manhattan, allowing fast-charge options for motorists. For locals, the function is now available in Chinatown and on the Lower East Side.

“We just expanded our Supercharger network across New York City, making Tesla ownership more convenient for those without direct access to charging at home or work,” Tesla reportedly wrote in an email to nearby customers, and obtained by The Drive. “Located in public garages near local amenities, these new Supercharger locations are specifically designed for efficiency in high volume urban areas—providing a consistent charge time of around 45 to 50 minutes.”

You can super-charge inside garages at 106 Mott Street and Imperial Parking at 59 Allen Street (notorious for those joy-riding attendents a few years ago). Regular Tesla charging stations are also running in Seward Park and on Ludlow Street in Hell Square.
