Tesla Plans To Launch 18,000 Superchargers By End Of 2018

By

With the recent release of the Model 3, Tesla has a lot of motivation to get Superchargers launched all over the world. Elon Musk revealed at last week’s release party that in order to meet the needs of all Model 3 units being shipped, they want to reach 18,000 Superchargers by the end of 2018. Assuming they can nearly reach a prior goal to hit five figures by the end of the year, that’s a pretty obtainable outcome.

Superchargers refer to each stall at a Tesla Supercharger station, giving owners the ability to use the manufacturer’s Model S and Model X units to charge up their cars extremely quickly. Just how fast is it? They can add 170 miles in 30 minutes, which is enough to get you a good distance. A mobile app will be able to daisy-chain stations along trips so owners wouldn’t be caught in a tight spot when driving outside the initial charge range. If you're not in an urban area, you're still in luck; even in the nation’s heartland, there are plenty of stations along major highways.
