For owners of all-electric cars, the availability of juice or electricity is the key to their extended mobility.
Now, Tesla Motors has opened a new showroom and service center on Route 17 in Paramus, where eight Superchargers are available 24 hours a day to Model S and Roadster owners.
A 20-minute charge adds 170 miles to your range, and a full charge takes an hour.
The cost? It's free. There's no charge to recharge. Get it?
But the opening of the 20,000-square-foot building this month is also big news for prospective Tesla owners, because new cars will be delivered there.
Until the Paramus service center opened, new owners had to travel to Springfield Township, southwest of Newark, to pick up their cars.

I've seen blogs and other accounts that claim the tax credit "reduces" the price of the car by $7,500, but that is just media hype and has no basis in reality.
