NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Tesla Motors has plans to build its first supercharging station in southeastern Virginia.

The Virginian-Pilot reports (https://bit.ly/1zSbdri ) the maker of electric cars has submitted a site document with detailed drawings about the location of the station at Janaf Shopping Yard, near the Interstate 64/264 interchange in Norfolk.

A spokeswoman says Tesla hasn’t broken ground and there is no timetable yet for an opening date.

According to the company, a supercharger can add 170 miles of range to a Tesla Model S in 30 minutes. It also can fully charge a depleted car in less than an hour. The station can charge up six cars at a time.

Tesla is building a network of recharging stations nationwide. Tesla owners can use the stations at no cost.
