According to The Wall Street Journal, several Tesla owners have complained about long lines at their local charging stations. CEO Elon Musk said that the lines are due to people using the stations for around town trips rather than long journeys.

Musk said that Tesla may choose to remind customers that its supercharging stations are meant for those taking long road trips, but this didn’t go over well with owners, who were promised free use of the stations for life when they bought their cars. The stations typically take 40 minutes to charge a vehicle, reports WSJ.

Tesla announced in May that it will makes changes to its chargers in China depending on the country’s standards. The company wants to move more vehicles in the country after it failed to move as many as it wanted in its launch.
