Although electric cars provide energy security, improve fuel economy, lower fuel costs, and reduce emissions, the biggest problem with them is their limited range. No one wants to get stuck without any juice.
To solve this issue, Tesla is building a vast network of “Supercharger” stations
Tesla’s Superchargers are solar-powered connectors that charge the vehicle very fast and will remain free-to-use “forever.”
Tesla’s Model S is an amazing award-winning electric car that offers an industry-best range of up to 265 miles. Tesla’s Superchargers are a great way to make the Model S even more compelling and convenient. But now Tesla is more concerned about their Model 3, as they try to make it more affordable and attainable for a majority of would-be car buyers.
Tesla’s Superchargers are growing like weeds worldwide:
Because this network of chargers will determine Tesla’s future, the company has created 440 Supercharger stations with 2,427 Superchargers. The network has expanded not only in the US, but in Europe and Asia as well.
As per Tesla’s estimates, at present 80% of the U.S. is within 100 miles of a Supercharger and is expected to reach 98% by the end of this year. Moreover, the supercharging stations are tactically placed to minimize stops during long-distance travel and are near restaurants, shopping centers, and Wi-Fi hot spots.
