On December 17, Tesla's Alexis Georgeson (communications/public relations specialist) told InsideEVs that 141 Supercharger stations were operational in North America. Those 141 stations have 884 individual charging points.
Tesla Overtakes CHAdeMO
This day has been in the making for quite some time now and with official figures in hand, we can now declare Tesla the fast-charge king of North America.
CHAdeMO has been knocked off its pedestal by the Tesla Supercharger network. Not in terms of charging locations/sites, but total charging points.
CHAdeMO currently lists 776 CHAdeMO chargers in the US. That's 776 charging points for CHAdeMO, since the units rely on a single plug at each location. Even if we were to add the "54 Others" into the mix (assuming the "others" we're all in North America, which they aren't), Tesla would still be king.
Official CHAdeMO Count For U.S Listed At 776
Tesla, on the other hand, equips its Superchargers with anywhere from 2 to 12 charging points per Supercharger location.
Thanks to the information provided to us by Tesla Motors, we can now definitively state that the Tesla Supercharger network has more charging points than CHAdeMO in the US.
Supercharger Growth Monumental
Let's take a brief look back at the recent history of the Tesla Supercharger network.
Tesla's tally was 570 charging points when its 98th Supercharger went live. However, since the 98th went live, 43 more came online. Those sites added 314 points to the network, thus bringing the grand charging point total for the Tesla Supercharger network to 884 (as of December 17). And that's just in North America. Worldwide, Tesla now has 298 Superchargers listed as online, with huge growth now occurring in both Europe and the Asia/Pacific region.
So long CHAdeMO, there's a new king of North America's fast charging network. A king by the name of Tesla Supercharger.
