Charging Is Our Priority

As Tesla prepares for our first mass-market vehicle and continues to increase our Model S and Model X fleet, we’re making charging an even greater priority. It is extremely important to us and our mission that charging is convenient, abundant, and reliable for all owners, current and future. In 2017, we’ll be doubling the Tesla charging network, expanding existing sites so drivers never wait to charge, and broadening our charging locations within city centers.

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.

Improving Supercharger Availability

Diseñamos la red de Superchargers para que el viaje en carretera sea un deleite continuo. Por ello comprendemos lo frustrante que es llegar a una estación y encontrar que todos los puestos de carga están ocupados por Teslas ya cargados. Para mejorar la experiencia de todos los propietarios, estamos introduciendo una comisión por inactividad a toda la flotilla para aumentar la disponibilidad de los Superchargers.

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.
