Tesla Supercharger Station

Tesla sells electric cars. These are not hybrids, with both a gas and an electric engine, but a pure, electric engine car. Traditionally, electric cars were limited to commercial operations in and around warehouses and other short-distance operations, or in locations where the exhaust of a gasoline or diesel engine could harm or kill people. A few people purchased electric cars for short-haul commutes.

Tesla has grander ambitions: they wish to produce full-size, full-featured automobiles. Since gas stations assist gas-powered cars, Tesla decided to set up electric charging stations for Tesla cars — across the entire United States. These are images of a Tesla Supercharger station near the Denver Airport.
