Fans of Tesla Motors know that Elon Musk is worth following on Twitter. He doesn’t tweet *that* much, but when he does, he tends to let slip bits of news about his various companies.
On Thursday evening, Musk tweeted this to his more than 87,000 followers:
Tesla Supercharger unveiling event set for Sept 24. It will feel like alien spaceships landed at highway rest stops.

Tesla says that Superchargers are not for home charging or every day use, but for refueling on road trips. They will be capable of providing about 150 miles of range to the Model S in half an hour.
The company hasn’t said how many will be installed, or where. But major corridors, like I-5 between Los Angeles and the Bay Area, is a good bet.
