It was revealed earlier this year that Tesla is getting ready for a major Supercharger expansion prior to opening the network to other electric vehicles. Tesla has now confirmed the news, with numerous new charging station designers being hired in charge of establishing new stations in the United States.
This follows a new $7.5 billion federal initiative to help pay for electric vehicle infrastructure, which is now being implemented, and one of the criteria for obtaining funding is that the charging stations are available to cars from various manufacturers.
By opening its network, Tesla will boost traffic and have access to more money to expand it faster. And Tesla has stated that it intends to rapidly expand the Supercharger network. Tesla announced last month that it intended to triple the size of the Supercharger network within two years.
The company recently stated that it had reached a new milestone of 30,000 Superchargers, which is an impressive feat.
Supercharger stalls, which are available at over 3,100 locations throughout the world, are a feature of Tesla’s Supercharger network. The firm is apparently speeding progress since it added roughly 5,000 Superchargers in about six months.
Tesla has the widest global fast-charging network, and it’s expanding at breakneck speed. Tesla began testing the first stations with vehicles from other manufacturers earlier this month, ahead of its planned opening to all electric vehicle drivers.
Tesla has two more networks of chargers beyond the Supercharger network. Tesla has its Destination network, which uses level 2 charging sites, and it is now constructing its Megacharger network, which will be used to charge bigger EVs like the Tesla Semi.
