Tesla's New Updated Supercharger Map
Tesla updated its Supercharger map, naming lots of new locations. Here is what's different.
Tesla has an overview of the Supercharger locations, which is regularly updated. You can find the overview of the locations here as a map , or you can look at the list of locations. (Future) Tesla drivers are currently taking a look, because the locations have just been updated.
In addition to the red locations (Supercharger) and black locations (local chargers, for example in hotels and parking garages), there are many new gray points that show upcoming locations for Superchargers. You can click on this and then see when the Tesla Supercharger will (probably) open.
Tesla's Supercharger network continues to be the plus point for me when it comes to comparing it with the competition. There is no provider who owns such a network and is expanding it so massively for its customers. And the updated map shows that some new locations will be added again in 2021.
"Tesla's worldwide supercharger network represents one of Tesla's big advantages over other EV automakers. And if the rumors of Tesla probably opening up their Supercharger network to other automaker's EVs, they will need to raise the number of Superchargers to handle any extra load. I charge up at home, so using a supercharger would only happen once or twice a year, for very long driving trips," writes Dean McManis, who has regularly been contributing EV stories to Torque News.
Simon Alvarez at Teslarati reports Tesla’s Supercharger ramp is evident in China as well, where planned stations could be seen across the country and its key cities. A good part of this is likely due to the deployment of a dedicated Supercharger production facility just a few miles away from Gigafactory Shanghai, which is expected to start operations early this year.
