Tesla's newest Supercharger gives jolts to mountain-bound drivers

Patrick T. Fallon

Tesla's Superchargers claim to provide 200 miles of driving range after 30 minutes of charge time.

Another so-called “supercharger” could help hikers and skiers more easily make their way to Central Oregon.

Tesla Motors has opened a new Supercharger Station in Detroit Lake, along Oregon 22 OR. The Detroit Lake Supercharger Station aims to help drivers get a solid charge on the road that links Salem with Bend.

The Supercharger can deliver charges, in between 20 to 30 minutes, that last for about three hours.

The Detroit Lake Superchargers are located at 210 D St., near The Cedar’s Restaurant. The six charging stalls are available all day.

Tesla had unveiled its first Oregon Supercharger last August in Woodburn. The company has 19 Superchargers nationwide.
