2013 Tesla Model S: Los Angeles to New York in Pictures
June 17, 2014
Here is a photo essay of our long-term 2013 Tesla Model S during our cross-country road trip using the newly completed Tesla supercharger network. This is recreated from the live Twitter feed for those of you who don't use Twitter.

Topping up our @TeslaMotors Model S in preparation for a cross-country trip. We leave after #StanleyCup game 5 ends.
At the Portofino watching the 3rd period. We're driving to NYC even if the Kings take it. Driver has iced tea.
This #StanleyCupFinal overtime period is delaying our LA-to-NYC liftoff in the @edmunds #Tesla Model S.
Departed the Portofino for NYC in our @TeslaMotors Model S at 8:26 pm after regulation ended. #GoKingsGo
Our @TeslaMotors Model S is taking on more power at the Barstow Supercharger. We'll do this two dozen more times.
Radio LeMans is in your @TeslaMotors Model S: Internet > TuneIn Radio > Location > Europe > UK > Genre > Auto Racing
Left Las Vegas at 3:18 am to begin our longest and sketchiest leg: 222 miles with over 4k elevation gain. #evxcountry
We made it from Las Vegas to the Beaver, UT @TeslaMotors Supercharger with 9 miles to spare. #evxcountry
Vegas (2,060 ft) is 222 miles from Beaver, Ut (5891 ft) intermediate low 1,500 ft, high 6,500 ft. St. George #Supercharger will fill the gap
The @edmunds team just left the @TeslaMotors Supercharger on the banks of the Green River. Next stop, Colorado.
Miles and miles of construction coneage is slowing is down.
Grand Junction, Colo. Supercharger achievement unlocked. Our @TeslaMotors Model S was here and gone in 24 minutes.
Glenwood Springs is having a British car show tomorrow. Morgan parked next (but not in) the #Supercharger lot.
Big delay. I-70 closed at Gypsum. Being detoured onto dinky road through town to Eagle. Losing time. #evxcountry
Leaving the @TeslaMotors Supercharge at Silverthorne, CO. Will pass Denver in an hour on way to Cheyenne, WY.
We crossed the Wyoming state line at the 24-hr mark of our coast-to-coast journey in the @edmunds Tesla Model S.
It's nearly 1:00 am in tiny Lusk, Wyoming. Nothing to do at this Supercharger at this hour. Rapid City SD is next.
In the pre-dawn light we have a clear view of Mt. Rushmore ... mall. #evxcountry
The @edmunds crew has wheeled their @TeslaMotors Model S to the Murdo, SD Supercharger.
We passed the halfway point on the run to the Mitchell, SD @TeslaMotors supercharger. Happy Fathers Day!
We might've felt smarter if we'd stayed at the Worthington, MN Holiday Inn Express, but we've got to move on. #tesla
Our @TeslaMotors Model S road trip is on schedule. We left Albert Lea, MN a half-hour ago. Wisconsin is up next.
Eating dinner while our @TeslaMotors Model S charges in Rockford, IL. This long charge will take us to Indiana.
Mishawaka supercharger location is weak. Long ways from toll road exit, no food or restrooms after mall hours.
Sunrise in Macedonia, OH. Only three stops after this in our LA-NY crossing in the @edmunds @TeslaMotors Model S.
We're at the Somerset, PA supercharger. Only 373 miles remain until our @TeslaMotors Model S sees NYC.
We just plugged our @TeslaMotors Model S in for the last time at the Newark, DE travel plaza. Only 130 miles to NYC!
Stay tuned. More to come from our arrival in New York and the trip back to Los Angeles.
