It’s no secret that Tesla’s Supercharger network is expansive, but now the automaker has officially deployed a Supercharger station in every US state. On November 18th, Tesla tweeted a photo of their latest Supercharger station (equipped with four charging stalls) in Soldotna, Alaska.
The location was strategic, as Soldotna is located approximately 240 kilometres from Alaska’s biggest population centre in Anchorage. This new Supercharger station will be incredibly helpful to northern EV drivers hoping to take a road trip south of the city.
This latest addition also comes on the heels of Tesla reaching a major milestone – as their Supercharger network now spans 30,000 stations worldwide. It goes without saying, Tesla’s network is the most expansive global fast-charging network of its kind, and the automaker is showing no signs of slowing down.
In fact, just last month Tesla announced plans to effectively triple the size of its Supercharger network over the next two years, which will have a meaningful impact on the convenience offered to current and future EV drivers hoping to charge their vehicles on-the-go.
Tesla has also revealed that they will be opening up their Supercharger network to non-Tesla drivers in the near future, a move that will coincide with the US$7.5 billion federal program in the US to fund EV infrastructure that is currently being adopted.
