Tesla: Superchargers are now within 150-mile distance for 99% people in US
According to a recent statement by US electric vehicle maker Tesla Motors, the extensive deployment of Supercharger network by the company has resulted in a situation wherein “99% of the US population is within 150 miles of a Supercharger.”
With some early-2018 reports having revealed that Tesla is deploying its Supercharger network at a very brisk pace this year, the recent statement by the automaker implies that Superchargers are apparently playing a significant role in making it possible for the owners of electric vehicles (EVs) to easily recharge their vehicles each day.
According to the overall Supercharger deployment figures, Tesla is presently operating a total of 10,836 Superchargers at 1,339 stations worldwide.
In addition to the reported figures, Tesla has also revealed a new map for expanding its Supercharger deployment in 2018-2019, for supporting its growing EV fleet with the launch of the Model 3. The main objective behind Tesla’s plans to further expand its Supercharger network is to enable long-distance travel for Tesla owners.
Since all the EVs produced by Tesla offering at least 200-mile range on a single charge, the widespread deployment of Superchargers by the company is evidently aimed at ensuring that virtually all Tesla owner in the US can have access to a Supercharger while travelling between destinations.
