Tesla Aims Bigger In Anticipation Of Model 3

Tesla Model 3 is nearing its launch and Musk & gang have disclosed that the company is aiming to double the size of the company’s charging infrastructure this year.

This is done in the hopes to better serve owners who are commuting between states as the expansion centers around growing its charging network which currently consists of over 5,400 Superchargers and over 9,000 Destination Charging connectors located at hotels and restaurants.

Tesla is hoping to grow its network by increasing that figure to over 10,000 Superchargers and 15,000 Destination Charging connectors globally.

North America will be gaining the most as Tesla is aiming to hike the number of Superchargers by 150 percent! It’s been reported that California itself will be gaining more than 1,000 Superchargers.

Although the automaker has yet to disclose the locations of the new chargers, Tesla hinted that they will be developing bigger charging sites on popular travel routes.

According to Tesla, the new locations will permit “several dozen” Tesla cars to be charged at the same time while many sited will be constructed further away from the highway for the ease of local usage.
