Tesla, the electric car manufacturer, has another reason to entice new drivers as The Planning Board approved of new charging stations to be placed at a Wawa. Wawa is gas station that hopes to be the best gas station you've ever been to by providing coffee, fresh food, and soon Tesla charging stations.
The Wawa in question, at 909 Route 33 near the border with Freehold Township, has 90 parking spaces, according to Duncan Prime, an attorney representing Tesla. Two will become designated Tesla charging spaces, and the other six can be used as charging spaces for Teslas or simply as parking spaces.
There will be no charging kiosk or credit card machine as billing is cloud-based. “Just plug in your car and start charging,” Henry Misas, an Installation Manager for Tesla, told the Planning Board.
The time to fully charge a car can take between five and 30 minutes, Misas said.
The plugs going in at the Wawa are only compatible with Tesla vehicles, Misas said.
By his estimation, the manufacturer has between 20 and 30 charging stations within New Jersey.
