It is understandable that Tesla’s Supercharger stations at certain areas will be congested according to the season, but there could come a time where Tesla vehicles significantly outnumber the stations especially with the impending Tesla Model 3 that will be revealed in March.
Although these charging amenities are able to charge up to 80 percent of a 85kWh battery in half an hour, waiting for that amount of time for someone to scoot over so you can fill up is still quite a wait.
Of course Tesla owners can just charge their cars at home, and so what if it’s ten times slower than filling up at a Supercharger station? Just do it overnight. The only catch is that installing a home charger is not particularly simple, and it can cost up to over $5,000, though the average cost of installing a NEMA 14-50 is about $1,000 to $2,000.
But hey, if you can afford a Tesla Model S then you could surely afford a four figures for convenience, right?
