The Rapid Rise of Tesla Supercharging: Covering the United States and World in Chargers

Tesla Supercharging is covering the United States and world in charging stations.

Are you worried about buying a Tesla EV and not having enough charging to take a trip anywhere? This article will show you that you need not worry at all about that.

Tesla Supercharging is starting to cover the United States in chargers for Tesla EVs and now EVs from other companies. If you look at a map of Tesla Supercharging from 10 years ago, you will see that it was mostly California, with some chargers along I-15 through Las Vegas, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, all the way through New York that were set up. You had some on the East coat and in Texas as well.

Today, you can barely make out where any of the U.S. is with so many Superchargers, and there are still many more getting set up. This is necessary for the advancement of EVs (electric vehicles) and the future of sustainable energy. Just take a look at all these Superchargers.

In some ways, the charging and Energy Business for Tesla is more exciting than the auto business because the charging involves more than just Tesla's EVs. It involves everyone else's EVs, and it makes Tesla the electrified version of ExxonMobil.

You can now take a trip anywhere in the U.S., even in the Model 3 RWD (standard range) and have enough range to make the trip without having range anxiety. Tesla's Superchargers are known for their uptime, as opposed to other fast chargers that are available only 50% of the time because of problems.

I do think that the other chargers will get fixed and be reliable eventually. However, Tesla has already made a name for itself and is the go-to standard for EV charging.

Tesla is going to keep making charging stations. I suspect that we'll see 50,000 Supercharging station stalls in the U.S. at some point in the next year or two. We'll also hit around 5,000 total stations at some point as well too.

Tesla is the first company - an enigma of sorts - due to it being an auto company, an Energy company, an AI company, and a robotics company. Any business in either of those segments could become one of the largest companies in the world, but to do all 4 is impressive.

Even today, I hear from people that it is impossible to take a road trip or travel around in the U.S. due to having a lack of charging infrastructure. This is not true at all. Tesla has the entire U.S. covered in supercharging stations.

I was reading a comment from a Twitter user who said that 4 1/2 years ago, their family went to California on a road trip from New Jersey. They then went to Canada, Washington DC, and even more places in a Tesla Model 3. They had no range anxiety and had plenty of time to charge at a Tesla Supercharger.

Do you think Tesla has the lead in charging? How many more supercharging stations will Tesla build?
