Tesla Opening Sixth Arizona Supercharger Tomorrow in Flagstaff

You can't buy a Tesla in Arizona, but you can get it charged here.

Despite Arizona's law preventing Tesla from using its sales model in the state, the company is opening its latest "supercharger" tomorrow in Flagstaff.

The superchargers, which Tesla Model S owners can use for free if they have the option enabled on their vehicle, provide about half a charge in 20 minutes. At home, it takes owners between four and six hours to get a full charge with the best wall connector option. After 30 minutes of charging with the supercharger, a Tesla owner can make it about 170 miles.

The superchargers are placed throughout the United States, as Tesla continues to build the network -- it only became possible to make a coast-to-coast trip on the superchargers a couple months ago.

With the Flagstaff opening, Arizona has more supercharger locations (six) than any other state except California, where Tesla's headquarters is located.

The Flagstaff supercharger is at a Courtyard Marriott, near I-17 and I-40.

The other five in Arizona are in Quartzsite, Buckeye, Holbrook, Kingman, and Yuma.
