Tesla Supercharger Station Comes To The Asheville Outlets
As you all know, Asheville is all about being green, saving energy, and using less gas. That is why we are so excited that Tesla has just installed a new Supercharger Station right across the street from us at the Asheville Outlets on Brevard Road.
The auto industry has made huge improvements over the last couple of years in an effort to create more environmentally friendly cars that consumers will love. “Green” cars now look cool, and are much more fun to drive than they were a few years ago.
Take a look at this list of Best Green Cars to Buy in 2015. You see a lot more manufacturers on this list than you did 5 years ago. Notice when describing the winner, the Volkswagen e-Golf, the writers call it the “most ‘normal’ electric car we’ve ever driven.” That says to me that its going to be a lot more “normal” to see eco-friendly electric cars and hybrids on the roads, not only here in Asheville, but all over the world. So it is great to see charging stations like the one at the Asheville Outlet Mall popping up to accomodate the drivers who choose to not only reduce their carbon footprint, but also save a ton of money at the gas pump.
Tesla Superchargers are considered the “World’s Fastest Charging Station”. They are completely free of charge and charge Tesla vehicles in minutes rather than hours. Today, they only work with Tesla vehicles, but hopefully more vehicles will be able to charge at Superchargers in the future. Tesla has stated that they are in talks with some manufacturers to make the charging stations compatible with other makes. Tesla has over 500 Superchargers around the world and a new one is opening nearly every day. Tesla is definitely leading the electric car revolution, but the whole auto industry is following suit. That’s great news for the environment, and maybe one day we can finally stop spending so darn much on gasoline.
