Last week Tesla reached a milestone of 2,000 Superchargers worldwide, located at almost 400 Supercharger Stations in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Tesla Superchargers enable free long distance electric driving across the United States, and up and down the West and East Coasts. They connect the United Kingdom to continental Europe and stretch from the south of France to northern Norway, far up into the Arctic Circle. In China, Superchargers link major cities along the coast, and we recently opened Supercharger stations in Japan and Australia. The Tesla Supercharger network is the world’s largest and fastest-growing fast-charging network. In 2014, the number of Superchargers increased five fold. We plan to double the number in 2015.
Model S drivers enjoy the convenience of plugging in at home or at the office so they’ve always got plenty of charge for their daily driving needs. Tesla’s global Supercharger network makes road trips exceptionally easy and delightful. At Superchargers, Model S owners traveling far from home can get half a charge in as little as 20 minutes – completely free. Superchargers are typically located next to amenities such as cafes and shopping centers so you can stop for a quick meal or shopping break while your Model S charges. Every Model S with an 85 kWh battery includes Supercharging, and it can be added to any 60 kWh Model S.
