• Tesla operates the largest network of fast charging stations in the world
• A total of 924 new Supercharger stations are planned
• Leak is probably due to technical problems
The US electric car manufacturer Tesla has the world’s largest network of fast charging stations. The company’s more than 35,000 Superchargers are located on major thoroughfares and near popular points of interest to provide motorists with convenient and easy charging. According to information on the company website, up to 275 kilometers can be covered after just 15 minutes of charging. A map on the company’s website shows all the locations of the Supercharger stations, but you can also use the electric car’s navigation system to guide you directly to the nearest Supercharger.
Website leaks new Supercharger locations
As “Teslamag” recently reported, it should not remain at around 35,000 charging stations. When trying to access the overview page for superchargers, service centers or stores, the otherwise detailed page remained blank. However, when trying out direct changes to the web address, the online portal found a list of all existing and planned Supercharger stations worldwide, which was only available for a short period of time. According to the list, there are exactly 3,628 active Supercharger stations in the world, another 924 are marked “coming soon” and are therefore probably still planned. However, information on opening dates was not disclosed on the site. If new locations are shown on the official map, the dates that are no more than three quarters away are usually also given there at the same time. Applying this length of time to the accidentally leaked list would mean that the company at Elon Musk will increase the number of its charging stations by around 25 percent by mid-2023.
Leak is likely related to technical problems
Since other Tesla pages could not be accessed at the same time, the appearance of the list is probably related to a technical problem. This is also supported by the fact that the leaked page could no longer be accessed after a short time. With the increasing demand for electric vehicles and Tesla’s pilot program for superchargers in Europe, a number of new charging stations are not surprising, according to “CarAndDriver”.
