Tesla has announced a major milestone in the rollout of its supercharging stations in the US.

It is now possible to drive a Tesla from the southern-most to the northern-most point of the US along the west coast, fuelled entirely by supercharging stations.

The EV-maker calls it the West Coast Supercharging Corridor, which includes San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.

With the last stations in the corridor now operating, Tesla can boast a supercharging station within 200 miles (320km) of 99 percent of Californians and 87 percent of owners in Washington and Oregon.

To celebrate, Tesla plans to drive two of its Model S EVs 1,750 miles (2800km) from San Diego, California to Vancouver, British Columbia using only supercharging stations for energy.

For a regular Model S customer (which is currently Tesla’s only model), the trip can be made effectively for free as use of the supercharging stations in included for the life of the car.

Tesla claims that 98 percent of the North American population will have access to the supercharging network before June 2015.

In Australia, deliveries of the Model S are expected to finally take place during the second quarter of 2014.

Australian customers had been left feeling alienated, until Tesla recently began contacting them to confirm deliveries.

Power for the EV will have to come from existing means however, and Tesla is only believed to be producing an initial run of 500 of the Model S in right-hand-drive.

A rollout of supercharging stations was due to begin in Asia this year, but to date not a single station has been built outside the US.

There are currently no plans for any of the supercharging stations in Australia, and with the collapse of the Better Place program earlier this year, Australians will be charging their EVs the ‘old fashioned’ way for the foreseeable future.
