Tesla to install charging stations at Airbnb properties across California

In an announcement made via a Twitter post released on Thursday, electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla Motors has revealed that it has partnered with home-sharing startup Airbnb to install charging stations at Airbnb properties across California.

The partnership between Palo Alto-based Tesla and San Francisco-based Airbnb will unfold the opportunity for Airbnb hosts to request a free Tesla charging station, which will be installed at their cost.

The request for free Tesla charging stations can be made by Airbnb's California hosts that have five verified bookings and a rating of higher than four stars.

As a result of the partnership between Tesla and Airbnb, charging stations for Tesla vehicles will be installed at a minimum of 100 Airbnb properties - including 30 high-end properties - in California. At launch, charging stations at 12 California locations will be available to Tesla owners.

The installation of the charging stations across the state will make it convenient for owners of Tesla vehicles to travel without concern over the range of their vehicles. Tesla already claims that its Model S cars have a driving range of between 208 and 270 miles on a single charge of their batteries.
