Tesla Prepares for Arrival of Model 3 By Expanding Global Supercharger Network
As Tesla prepares for their first mass-market vehicle and continues to increase the size of their Model S and Model X fleet, they’re making charging an even greater priority.
In 2017, they will be doubling the Tesla charging network, expanding existing sites so drivers never wait to charge, and broadening their charging locations within city centres.
As always, the most convenient way to charge is to plug in overnight where you park. However, to better serve the needs of owners who are travelling or those who don’t have access to reliable home charging, the company will continue to aggressively expand their public charging networks.
To date, Tesla has built over 5,400 Superchargers with the goal of enabling convenient long distance travel for more than 200,000 Tesla owners around the world. In parallel, they have built a network of more than 9,000 Destination Charging connectors that replicate the convenience of home charging by providing hotels, resorts, and restaurants with Tesla Wall Connectors.
The company started 2017 with over 5,000 Superchargers globally and by the end of this year, Tesla will double that number to total more than 10,000 Superchargers and 15,000 Destination Charging connectors around the world.
