Elon Musk lays out ambitious plan for Tesla Supercharger network in Europe

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is creating some audacious guarantees again to the firm ’s community of electric fast chargers, known as Superchargers. This time, he’s heading for 100 percent Tesla Supercharger coverage in Europe by next year.

In reaction to a question on Twitter, Musk stated Tesla’s Supercharger coverage will expand to 100 percent of Europe from 2019. “From Ireland into Kiev, from Norway to Turkey,” Musk wrote.

Check out Tesla’s Supercharger map indicates that a higher concentration of the rapid chargers in Western Europe. Countries like Albania, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Serbia and Moldova don’t have any Superchargers.

Yes. Supercharger coverage will expand to 100 percent of Europe following year. From Ireland into Kiev, from Norway to Turkey. https://t.co/7FQZgLCTVJ

Musk also laid out plans to concentrate on cities, especially to work with landlords to add home charging units in apartment buildings.

Musk subsequently went farther, now in reaction to some Twitter follower who noticed that Superchargers intended for San Antonio and Austin at 2018 had to be completed. The billionaire entrepreneur stated “all highways in Texas would have Superchargers, all of the way to Brownsville and around Mexico. ”

Definitely. All significant highways in Texas will have Superchargers, all of the way to Brownsville & over Mexico.

He laid out programs, even less specific, to add Superchargers into Africa from 2020. There are no Superchargers around the African continent.

Tesla’s Supercharger system was started in 2012 in an attempt to promote owners of its own electric vehicles to travel longer distances. A Supercharger adds up to 170 miles of variety in about 30 minutes (although TechCrunch has undergone slightly longer charge times based upon position ).

Musk has created guarantees for the firm ’s Supercharger community before. And as the company has made considerable improvement and investment from its own Supercharger network, it’s still nowhere near its previously promised target. 

Back in April 2017, Tesla stated it would double its international network of Superchargers from more than 5,400  to more than 10,000 by the end of the year. It fell short of the goal with about 8,250 Superchargers.

Earlier this season, Musk laid out strategies to get 18,000 superchargers globally by the conclusion 2018. As of Dec. 27, Tesla has 11,583 Superchargers (within 1,386 Supercharger stations) worldwide.
