Tesla CEO Elon Musk has revealed more details on a plan to expand its network of supercharging stations across the country.

The new network would allow Tesla electric car owners to drive from LA to New York, just on Tesla's network of fast-charging stations.

Most will be located off at freeway rest stops, so Tesla owners can get a bite to eat while waiting for their cars to charge.
