Tesla Destination Charging now offered as new amenity for guests
The Epicurean Hotel has teamed up with Tesla Motors to provide an increasingly desirable amenity; Tesla Destination Charging. Tesla High Power Wall Connectors add 58 miles of range per hour to Model S, charging the vehicle overnight and replicating the convenience Tesla owners are accustomed to at home.
Epicurean Hotel joins a rapidly growing network of resorts in Tesla’s Destination Charging Program. Tesla partners with hotels, resorts, and restaurants around the world to offer High Power Connectors as an amenity for visitors, allowing them to charge their Tesla Model S at locations where they want to stay for several hours like hotels, ski resorts, and restaurants. Model S offers 265 miles of range on a single charge so the High Power Wall Connector can easily top off the Tesla in just a few hours.
The Epicurean Hotel and other Tesla Destination Charging locations are hosted on Tesla’s interactive webpage and will soon be GPS located on Model S’ navigation through a free software update sent wirelessly to the car. In coming months, Tesla owners will be able to use the Model S 17” touch screen to easily plan trips and locate the property.
Tesla Motors’ (NASDAQ: TSLA) goal is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable transport with a full range of increasingly affordable electric cars. California-based Tesla designs and manufactures electric vehicles, as well as EV powertrain components. Tesla has delivered more than 55,000 electric vehicles to customers worldwide.
