A VentureBest article said Tesla's Model S car would allow a person to drive across the Canadian and Mexican borders for free. The GPS systems of Tesla Model S had confirmed that the fast-changing stations of Tesla Supercharger DC had been completed. The Supercharger stations were aligned along the San Diego Insterstate 5 - Vancouver route.

Tesla S owners could charge the battery packs of their vehicles to 80% in 20 minutes. This means that the battery pack could make the car run at a maximum 200 miles of range. Charging would be available in all Supercharger stations. Tesla also disclosed that its engineers had been working to cut the charging time down to just 10 minutes.

The Supercharger stations had been a major investment of Tesla. The company reportedly did not receive outside funding.

Tesla Model S cars had been sold for a retail price of USD95,400 and USD105,400 before government incentives and texes. The cars had been ranked as the number one plug-in electric car in Northern America in terms of sales during the first quarter of this year. The car is also number one in Norway in terms of sales on September 2013, with a 5.1% market share in new cars sold.
