COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - Tesla Motors has installed eight accelerated charging stations in Council Bluffs as the company seeks to advance its plans to implement a nationwide charging network.

Tesla officials say the Supercharger stations are the first of its kind in Iowa, offering quicker charge times for the company’s all-electric, battery-powered Model S sedan than those located in Cedar Falls and Davenport. A Tesla spokeswoman says the new docks in Council Bluffs are part of the company’s goal of providing free charging ports about every 150 miles along interstates and highways across the country.

The Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1EfcZSX ) that the stations aren’t yet available for use, but the spokeswoman tells the newspaper that they should be opening soon.

Tesla is based in Palo Alto, California.
