Tesla building United States’ largest car-charge hub in Barstow midway between LA, Vegas

BARSTOW — Electric car manufacturer Tesla Inc. is building the United States’ largest electric car charging hub in Barstow, a remote Mojave Desert town at the midpoint between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Mayor Paul Courtney revealed the world’s most valuable carmaker is already months into construction of Superchargers — a charger Tesla produces for quicker fill-ups and longer-distance drives than those provided by smaller home-charging options — during a Barstow City Council meeting Monday while praising the city staff’s dealmaking skills.

The 100-vehicle charging stations will be built adjacent to a major local sales-tax driver, The Outlets at Barstow, an open-air retail mall bolstered by neighboring consumer options including new dispensaries in the city’s nascent commercial cannabis industry.
