2,000 Superchargers

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.

Een Supercharging mijlpaal

In juni passeerde het Supercharger-netwerk een mijlpaal op het gebied van opladen door meer dan 1 GWh aan stroom in één maand aan Model S-voertuigen te leveren. Die stroom staat voor in totaal 5,9 miljoen gereden kilometers met een besparing van 635.950 liter brandstof, en 4,2 miljoen pond aan CO2-uitstoot. Dat is gelijk aan 7,5 keer naar de maan en terug rijden of de dagelijkse CO2-uitstoot van 73.684 Amerikanen te niet doen. 

Tesla’s Supercharger network is now the largest fast-charging network on the planet. It’s also the world’s fastest-growing charging network.

100 Supercharger Stations

This morning in Hamilton, New Jersey, we cut the ribbon on our 100th Supercharger station. A crowd of more than 100 people, including New Jersey state legislators, Tesla executives, and supporters, marked the milestone moment in the sunshine at the location next to a popular shopping center.

“What a great turn out!”, New Jersey Assemblyman Timothy Eustace told the crowd of more than 100 people. “We are zealots for electric cars, and we welcome and thank you for being here.”

Rally door het land: over de finish

At 7:30am today, two Tesla Model S sedans rolled quietly to a stop outside New York's City Hall to set a record speed time for an electric vehicle crossing the United States. The team had just driven the two cars across the U.S. while relying only on Superchargers for energy. Not only did the Cross Country Rally team manage the trip from Los Angeles to New York City in just 76 and a half hours, it also recorded the lowest charge time for an electric vehicle traveling across the country – a feat that is now being assessed for recognition as a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS achievement.

Rally door het land: dag drie

Vrijdagavond om 22.00 uur, in het midden van South Dakota bij een temperatuur van rond de nul graden, ervoer het Coast to Coast Rally team voor de eerste keer autopech.

But it wasn't a Model S. Instead, one of the team's sleeper vans took on a mysterious illness. As it climbed a hill outside the city of Mitchell after a Supercharger stop, the van started to sputter. Even with the foot to the floor, it would only get to 60mph. Soon, it started cutting out completely.

Rally door het land: dag twee

Een krantenkop uit de Denver Post van deze morgen: "Winterse storm geeft het bereik een duwtje in de rug."

Tesla's Cross Country Rally team can attest to the veracity of the report. Last night, the crew members and two Model S sedans were subjected to a good old fashioned Colorado dumping. More than 12 inches of snow. Winds up to 60 mph. White-out conditions. Interstate 70 over Vail Pass was closed, then re-opened, then closed again.
