Building the Supercharger Network for the Future

Tesla created the Supercharger network to make long-distance travel a seamless experience for drivers. Cars have always represented independence and the freedom to travel wherever and whenever people want to go. To enable this freedom, building a charging network that provides quick, convenient, and long-distance travel is critical to the adoption of electric vehicles. One of our top priorities this year is to significantly increase capacity of our Supercharger network.

Welcome Chris Lattner

We would like to welcome Chris Lattner, who will join Tesla as our Vice President of Autopilot Software. Chris’s reputation for engineering excellence is well known. He comes to Tesla after 11 years at Apple where he was primarily responsible for creating Swift, the programming language for building apps on Apple platforms and one of the fastest growing languages for doing so on Linux. Prior to Apple, Chris was lead author of the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure, an open source umbrella project that is widely used in commercial products and academic research today.

Tesla and Panasonic Will Begin Manufacturing Solar Cells and Modules in Buffalo, NY

Tesla and Panasonic have finalized an agreement this week to begin the manufacturing of photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules at the Buffalo, NY factory. These high-efficiency PV cells and modules will be used to produce solar panels in the non-solar roof products. When production of the solar roof begins, Tesla will also incorporate Panasonic's cells into the many kinds of solar glass tile roofs that Tesla will be manufacturing. All of these solar products will work seamlessly with Tesla’s energy storage products, Powerwall and Powerpack. Production of the first PV modules will begin in summer 2017, and will ramp to 1 Gigawatt of module production by 2019.

Verbessern der Supercharger-Verfügbarkeit

Wir haben das Supercharger Netz konzipiert, um durch leistungsstarke Ladetechnologie zügige und effiziente Langstreckenfahrten zu ermöglichen. Daher können wir es verstehen, dass es frustrierend ist, wenn man an einem Supercharger ankommt, der von bereits geladenen Teslas blockiert wird. Um eine effizientere Fahrt für alle Tesla Besitzer zu ermöglichen, führen wir daher eine flottenweite Blockiergebühr ein. Ziel ist es, die Verfügbarkeit von Supercharger Ladesäulen zu erhöhen.

Tesla Besitzer in Deutschland

Als Reaktion auf den Vorschlag des deutschen Kraftfahrt-Bundesamtes (KBA), der Name "Autopilot" sei irreführend, haben wir mit einem externen Marktforschungsunternehmen eine Umfrage unter Tesla-Besitzern in Deutschland durchgeführt, um besser zu verstehen, wie sie die Autopilot-Funktion wahrnehmen.

Formation of Tesla Advanced Automation Germany

Accelerating a sustainable energy future is only possible with high-volume factories. They allow us to manufacture high-quality products with economies of scale, making them more affordable and accessible to the world. As the machine that builds the machine, our factories are so important that we believe they will ultimately deserve an order of magnitude more attention in engineering than what they produce. At very high production volumes, the factory becomes more of a product than the product itself.

Ein Update zu unserem Supercharger Programm

Four years ago, Tesla introduced the Supercharger Network – the world’s fastest charging solution – to enable convenient long distance travel. Today, more than 4,600 Superchargers allow over 160,000 Tesla owners to drive across the continental U.S., from the Arctic Circle to the south of Spain, and across all of the population centers in China and Japan, among many other places. Supercharging has even helped owners drive their Teslas around the world.
