Road trip!

Tesla owners have access to a network of supercharging stations designed to recharge the car between major centres.

As you can see by the map, the current network of stations only covers the US east and west coasts and a corridor through the centre. But if you go to this site and slide the map timeline to end of 2014 and end of 2015, you'll see that Tesla plans to have most of the US and the most populous parts of Canada covered by then.

The superchargers are designed to get you to 80% capacity in less than 40 minutes and they have located the stations next to shopping and eateries along the highways.

Interesting to note, the use of the superchargers is free for the life of the car. That's right, your fuel costs on a road trip in a Tesla won't cost a dime.
