Tesla Inc. working on helping people in the city to own their electric cars without worrying about the plus at work or at home, focusing on downtown areas with the development of its supercharger network. According to a recent blog published by the company, the Tesla’s first downtown station is likely to be open for charging from Monday. It will be a 10-stall down area in Chicago and an eight-stall down area in Boston.

This concludes that the drivers will be able to recharge their car’s battery within 45 to 50. Tesla is preparing for the landing of its Model 3 that happens to be its least expensive car yet, along the way to its expansion of supercharge network.
