Tesla has addded charging stations in Manhattan and plans to add more to facilitate urban driving.

A dozen more charging stations have been installed in Manhattan parking garages, and another dozen are planned, along with the city's first Supercharger station, which delivers 130 kilowatts of electricity -- gving the car nearly 170 miles of range in just 30 minutes.

Tesla explains: "We strategically place Superchargers along well-traveled highways and in congested city centers. In addition to Superchargers, we have a growing network of charging partners with dedicated Tesla Wall Connectors at their properties."

An increased number of charging stations will make owning an electric Tesla vehicle far more practical for Manhattan's commuters and residents.
