Tesla Expanding L.A.-New York Car Charging Network

Tesla Motors Inc.’s Elon Musk is expanding a network of fast-charging stations, letting owners of his luxury electric cars drive coast-to-coast this year.

The carmaker, which has tripled in market value this year, is also tripling the number of solar-powered supercharger stations so that owners of the Model S sedan can drive to New York from Los Angeles, said Musk, Tesla’s chief executive officer and biggest investor. The company is providing more details of the charging-network expansion later today in a conference call.
