Tesla Superchargers Versus ChargePoint Network
Some shocking numbers…
Update: To date, Tesla’s global network of Superchargers have delivered nearly 30 GWh of energy. Tesla adds that drivers of the automaker’s EVs (both with public, private and residential charging) have saved 42.million gallons of gas while traveling some 931 million miles. The gallons of gas saved is not specific to just Supercharging.
When Tesla releases these figures, we’re often asked how these stats compares to other EVs or charging station providers. This time, we’ve got some ChargePoint figures for comparison:
Of course we have to note that the Tesla charging infrastructure is basically a prepaid/”free” after-the-sale transaction – which incentivizes convenience charging by its owners, while dispensing charges at many multiples the kW rate of the ChargePoint network.
To date, the ChargePoint network has delivered just under twice the amount of total GWh hours as Tesla’s Supercharging infrastructure.
