According to, a Supercharger is coming to the San Marcos Premium outlets between Austin and San Antonio.

With only 17 other stations across the U.S., the Palo Alto, Calif.-based automker said Superchargers provide half of a full charge in 20 minutes and allow drivers to travel for about three hours. The company plans to open four more stations in the state before the end of 2013, with its second opening in two weeks in Waco, according to a spokesperson.

Tesla previously announced its first Supercharger in Texas would open in Dallas, but the spokesperson said the “unpredictable nature of permits and inspection” caused construction in San Marcos to finish earlier.
