Tesla chooses El Cid as the first destination charging in Mazatlán

Mazatlán, México – October 27, 2017 – Tesla, one of the world’s most innovative companies has chosen El Cid Marina Beach Hotel in Mazatlán as its first Destination Charging Site in Mazatlán so Tesla owners can pull up, plug in and relax.

El Cid Marina Beach Hotel has two Tesla Wall Connectors each on site and one universal charger available for other electric cars. The Tesla Wall Connector is a Tesla-specific, Level-2 charging station. It can deliver up to 58 miles of driving range per hour to Tesla vehicles. It is important to mention that only qualified properties receive the Tesla Wall Connectors.

The partnership with Tesla is yet another initiative that proves the commitment El Cid has to its guests and the environment. Proof of that is shown by El Cid, a leading hotel company in México, being recognized with numerous respected certifications such as TripAdvisor’s GreenLeaders Ranking for its five resorts.

Additionally, El Cid has received The Touristic Environmental Quality Certification and the highest Sustainability Certification Rating, administered by PROFEPA, México’s Federal Environmental Agency, as well as the “S” designation” that echoes the same stringent standards enforced by both EarthCheck and the Rainforest Alliance, two globally recognized organizations that promote best practices for sustainability.

It is important to note that Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort in Riviera Maya has plans to become a Destination Charging Site in the future.

“Being the first Tesla Destination Charging Site in Mazatlán means that we are always looking forward to innovate and offer the best to all of our guests,” said Carlos Berdegué, CEO of El Cid.

Tesla Motors is a company that manufacturers performance electric cars. The engineer, inventor and business magnate, Elon Musk, created it with the mission of accelerating the transition to sustainable energy in the future.

Musk also co-funded PayPal, the world’s leading Internet payment system, SpaceX, a company that oversees the development and manufacturing of advanced rockets and spacecraft for missions to and beyond Earth’s orbit and OpenAI, a non-profit research company working to build artificial intelligence to ensure that AI’s benefits are as widely and evenly distributed as possible.
