The Partridge Inn Teams Up with Tesla Motors
Tesla Destination Charging now offered as new amenity for guests
AUGUSTA, Ga. - The Partridge Inn has teamed up with Tesla Motors to provide an increasingly desirable amenity; Tesla Destination Charging. Tesla High Power Wall Connectors add 58 miles of range per hour to Model S, charging the vehicle overnight and replicating the convenience Tesla owners are accustomed to at home.
The Partridge Inn joins a rapidly growing network of resorts in Tesla's Destination Charging Program. Tesla partners with hotels, resorts, and restaurants around the world to offer High Power Connectors as an amenity for visitors, allowing them to charge their Tesla Model S at locations where they want to stay for several hours like hotels, ski resorts, and restaurants. Model S offers 270 miles of range on a single charge so the High Power Wall Connector can easily top off the Tesla in just a few hours.
"The Partridge Inn is constantly finding new ways to heighten the guests' experience," said general manager Lloyd Van Horn. "By combining leading-edge technology and the forward-thinking of Tesla with our commitment to provide outstanding service and offerings, we now have the ability to offer guests a seamless and convenient charging experience during their stay."
The Partridge Inn and other Tesla Destination Charging locations are hosted on Tesla's interactive webpage and were recently GPS located on Model S' navigation through a free software update sent wirelessly to the car. Tesla owners are now able to use the Model S 17" touchscreen to easily plan trips and locate the property.
