Tesla Destination Charger Count To Grow With New Deal With Hilton
Hilton is gradually increasing the number of level 2 charging stations at its properties across the U.S., with a particular focus on Tesla Wall Connectors.
In 2015 Hilton announced that will install 50 Destination Chargers by the end of the year, and 100 by the end of 2016.
Currently there are 194 Hilton properties in U.S., equipped with charging stalls, and 144 of those have Tesla Wall Connectors.
Now, the company’s near term plan envisions 86 new charging stations installed in 2018.
For Hilton hotels and resorts (nearly 600 worldwide), attracting wealthy Tesla owners is important, especially as the overnight nature of guests is an ideal scenario for charging.
Tesla’s destination charger network already exceeds 5,000 locations in the world (see the list for U.S. here).
