As promised by CEO Elon Musk last week, Tesla has updated its map of planned Supercharger locations to show the upcoming stations in its 2018-2019 expansion.
It shows many more stations coming mainly to North America, Europe, and China.
Tesla has now 1,260 Supercharger stations with over 9,800 Superchargers around the world.
Earlier this month, we reported how Tesla’s Supercharger network is growing at a record pace in 2018 and Musk added that Tesla has thousands of new Supercharger stations in the construction/permit phase.
With Tesla’s new map, we have a better idea of where and when those new stations are coming.
It comes with a new UI, which can seem deceptive at first since when zoomed out, like pictured above, all the stations appear red and that meant an online station in previous Tesla Supercharger maps.
But when you zoom in, you see the same UI as before with the planned stations in grey and the current ones in red.
Heres’ the new northeast US and a few eastern Canadian provinces:
When you click on a grey station, you now get a better idea of when Tesla plans to open the station.
Instead of just “coming soon”, Tesla now says “summer 2018”, “fall 2018”, or “2019”.
In Canada, Tesla has slightly updated its trans-Canadian route, but it still can’t make it all the way to Newfoundland.
One of Tesla’s two new favorite Canadian interns turned ‘professional problem solvers’ pointed it out to Musk who said he will add stations to the construction plans:
Another interesting thing to take into account is that since some of those stations are planned for later than this summer, some of the new stations could feature the Supercharger V3 for quicker charging since Musk said that Tesla is aiming to release the more powerful charging system “late this summer.”
Can you see any interesting updated planned stations with Tesla’s new map? Let us know in the comment section below.
