RARE SIGHT: Finding a Tesla, the sleek and pricey all-electric car, around Wyoming's ranching towns is about as likely as spotting the mythical jackalope. And yet, one day last month, a Model S sedan pulled quietly in at the America's Best Value Inn Covered Wagon Motel in Lusk, population 1,557.

CHARGE IT: Its mission was to plug in four gleaming white Supercharger units the company had just installed in the motel's courtyard.

COAST-TO-COAST TRIP: The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company plans dozens more across the middle of the continent in the months ahead to make it more feasible for the electric car to go from seashore to seashore.
