Tesla Sets Up First Supercharger Station in Thailand

Tesla has opened its first Supercharger station in Bangkok, Thailand. It is located here:

Central World
4 4/1-4/2 Rama I Rd
Khwaeng Pathum Wan
Bangkok Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10330

It is a station with 9 Superchargers that are available 24/7 with up to 250 kW and CCS compatibility.

Amenities nearby include food, lodging, coffee, and more.

Thailand recently had its first deliveries of Tesla vehicles, so it makes perfect sense to now begin expanding the Supercharger network there. As more and more vehicles are delivered to Thailand, Tesla will need to open up more and more stalls.

Tesla Expansion of Its Supercharger Network

This location is very important for Tesla because it begins the Supercharger network in Thailand, which is far south of China toward the Gulf of Thailand and the sea. It will begin a network of chargers that eventually extends into China, making traveling in an EV much easier between countries.

This is only Thailand's first Supercharger, and Tesla's strategy to only build the Supercharger network when Tesla EVs are being delivered to that location makes sense. Those vehicles may need to make use of charging outside the home.

I presently live in a condo and don't have access to home charging. It's important to me that there is a charging infrastructure setup that makes it easy for me to charge. Anywhere Tesla vehicles are going to exist will need this infrastructure.

Where will Tesla go next for its Supercharger network? You can see destination charging available all throughout China, but the Tesla Supercharger network is concentrated near Hong Kong. I believe Tesla will continue to expand its charging network throughout China.

Will Tesla every build level 2 chargers that allow for slower charging or a "juice bar" charging experience? This might happen, but we'll have to wait and see what Tesla decides to do. Right now, they are focused on speed of charge.

What do you think of the first Supercharger in Thailand? Is this good for Tesla?
