Chief Executive Tesla Elon the Mask Is making some bold promises once again to the company's network of fast electrical chargers known as Superchargers. This time, Tesla aims to cover 100% Supercharger in Europe by next year.
In response to a question on Twitter, Musk said Tesla's Supercharger coverage would extend to 100% of Europe in 2019. "From Ireland to Kiev, from Norway to Turkey," Musk wrote.
A look at Tesla's Supercharger map shows a high concentration of high-speed chargers in Western Europe. Countries such as Albania, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Serbia and Moldova do not have any drivers.
Musk also developed plans to focus on cities, specifically to work with landowners to add residential freight units in residential buildings.
Then Mesc went further, this time in response to a Twitter follower who noted that the Superchargers plans for San Antonio and Austin in 2018 were not yet complete. "All major highways in Texas will be equipped with a high-speed truck, to Brownsville and through Mexico," the billionaire businessman said.
He even made plans, though less specific, to add superchargers to Africa in 2020. There are no superchargers on the African continent.
Tesla's Supercharger was launched in 2012 in an effort to encourage its electric vehicle owners to travel longer distances. Supercharger adds up to 170 miles of range in about 30 minutes (although TechCrunch has slightly longer shipping times depending on location).
MAKK has made bold promises to the company's Supercharger network before. Although the company has made significant progress and invested in the Supercharger network, it is still close to its previously promised target.
In April 2017, Tesla said it would do Multiply its global network of Superchargers From more than 5,400 to more than 10,000 by the end of the year. This goal has not risen to about 8,250 250 Superchargers.
Earlier this year, Mosk developed plans to acquire 18,000 worldwide chargers by the end of 2018. As of December 27, Tesla has 11,583 Superchargers (within 1,386 supercharger stations) worldwide.
