Comments Off on Tesla Superchargers Delivered Over One Gigawatt Hour of Power to Model S EVs in June

Tesla Motors passed an important milestone in June as its rapidly expanding Supercharger network delivered more than one gigawatt hour of power (GWh) to Model S electric vehicles – that’s enough energy for 3.7 million electric miles! According to Tesla’s blog , the achievement saved 168,000 gallons of gas and offset 4.2 million pounds of carbon dioxide. Since the Superchargers were launched less than two years ago, the network has powered more than 24.7 million driving miles and prevented 1.1 million gallons of gasoline from being burned.
