Tesla Superchargers Closing In On 100 In US
Watching the Tesla Motors Supercharger network evolve has been a regular pastime here at InsideEVs. We have watched the first US northern coast-to-coast path taken by Elon Musk in his youth reach completion early in 2014.
We have watched Norway, and now Germany and surrounding European Superchargers on the rise. Recently, the first Superchargers opened with the introduction of the Tesla Model S into the Chinese market.
The next milestone looks to be the first 100 stations in the US which should happen any week/day now. The current count is 122 total and 97 US Superchargers with 7 US Superchargers under construction
This summer looks to open a central passage from Los Angeles CA, traveling through Utah, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, and West Virginia. It is hard to determine the pace that the superchargers will open . At times they seem to slow in construction. Then you blink and twenty more come online.
With recent news of Tesla going open source with their patents, it appears as if Tesla will use this opportunity to launch another wave of superchargers. With Goodland and Hayes Kansas superchargers coming online last week, it certainly looks like Tesla drivers will have a path to Kansas City this summer. “I’m Going To Kansas City, Kansas City here I come…”
