TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) — Tesla Motors is building a supercharger station in the Sierra north of Lake Tahoe where drivers of their electric cars can recharge along U.S. Interstate 80 between Sacramento and Reno, Nevada.

Tesla officials announced plans earlier to build a station near Truckee about 30 miles southwest of Reno, but haven't confirmed an exact location or opening date.

The Sierra Sun reported this week that six charging bays with "Tesla" labels have been delivered to a taped off site in Truckee with construction equipment behind the Safeway on Donner Pass Road.

Assistant Truckee town manager Alex Terrazas confirmed Tesla pulled the required permits and paid the appropriate fees.
