Tesla Expanding Supercharger Network To Handle Model 3 Influx

It is extremely important to us and our mission that charging is convenient, abundant, and reliable for all owners, current and future. In total in North America, the number of Superchargers will increase 150 percent, and EV-loving California will get over 1,000 new Superchargers during 2017 within the state alone. The destination chargers will be found at hotels, restaurants and other retail-facing spots.

"We're moving full speed on site selection and many sites will soon enter construction to open in advance of the summer travel season", Tesla said.

Tesla, which first started the Supercharger network in 2012, has built over 5,400 Superchargers, claims the automaker. The timing is just ahead of the Model 3 sedan rollout.

These are both examples of Tesla offering owners a way to get more from their vehicle - rather than putting superchargers in the city they live in, a supercharger is placed a distance from town where a driver might be heading.

According to Bloomberg, Tesla is preparing to launch its $35,000 Model 3 electric auto later this year, with plans to make 500,000 electric vehicles in 2018, up from 76,000 a year ago.

Today, Tesla updated the goal for the Supercharger network to 10,000 and reiterated the quadrupling of Destination chargers.

And as the years past, Musk began expanding his vision to turning highways into "electric superhighways" in an attempt to persuade drivers to switch to battery-powered cars. It says it will also expand existing sites to accommodate more cars at once, and larger sites will be built along the busiest travel routes. The expansion also includes increasing capacity at existing sites, adding more in dense areas like urban centers, and generally trying to eliminate and alleviate existing and expected wait times for drivers.

Tesla argued that the investment to further the develop its charging stations will significantly advance electric vehicle adoption.

Parts of Europe are also set to get a slew of new Supercharger stations.

The company is preparing to launch its $35,000 Model 3 electric auto later this year, with plans to make 500,000 EVs in 2018 (up from 76,000 a year ago). The company advertises a 170-mile charge in about 30 minutes.
