The surprising moment 15 Teslas wait in line to be charged in California on Thanksgiving...


As thousands of travelers drive across the country over the holiday weekend, several Tesla owners in California were stuck waiting in line for a backed-up charging station. 

In a video titled, 'Tesla Energy Crisis,' footage shows a massive line of Teslas waiting for their turn at a Supercharger station in San Luis Obispo around 4.45pm on Thanksgiving day. 

Tesla's Supercharger stations are described as the 'world's fastest charging network' on the company's website. 

'Supercharger stations are conveniently located near desirable amenities like restaurants, shops and WiFi hot spots. Each station contains multiple Superchargers to get you back on the road quickly,' the company said.

Teslas can be seen wrapping around the outer edge of the Madonna Inn as families wait inside the running cars for a chance to refuel. 

For a Model S Tesla at a Supercharger station, it will take about 20 minutes to charge 50 percent and 40 minutes to charge 80 percent.
