Tesla Supercharger network accomplishes 25,000 installation milestone
Elon Musk-owned Tesla accomplishes a big milestone for the fast-charging network as the company's Supercharger network has now reached a total of 25,000 installed chargers.
At the end of 2020, Tesla had over 20,000 charging stalls at over 2,100 Supercharging stations globally.
Those 25,000 Supercharger stalls are at just over 2,700 Supercharger stations.
Tesla also launched a new Twitter account called 'Tesla Charging' that shares every new charging station coming online.
As per the account, Tesla opened eight new charging stations over the last week alone. The automaker is planning many more stations this year.
When Tesla brought the Model S to market, fast-charging stations were non-existent and the automaker decided to develop its network to control the charging experience, the report said.
The automaker swiftly realized how difficult it is to build charging stations due to coordinating with property owners, contractors, and the local electric utility, it added.
It ensued in some delays in the positioning of the network, but things have been ramping up since the launch of the V3 version of the Supercharger, which comes with higher power output.
The Supercharger network is the only global network of fast-charging stations.
In January, Tesla released a new map of upcoming Supercharging stations with timelines for new stations globally.
