Tesla’s Supercharger Network Grows to 50,000 Stalls in Only a Decade

Tesla’s lead continues to grow, and other automakers will continue to follow

In just over a decade since its inception, Tesla has announced a major milestone—its Supercharger network has expanded to include 50,000 charging stalls around the globe. Situated at approximately 5,500 locations, primarily in North America, Europe, and China, these aren’t merely charging “stations” but rather individual “stalls,” creating the most extensive fast-charging network available for electric vehicles.

The inception of Tesla’s Supercharger network was as much a strategic decision as it was a technological innovation. Admittedly, Tesla saw the future and decided to invest in both electric vehicles (EVs) and a charging infrastructure.

The Supercharger network’s growth has accelerated recently, with Tesla deploying an impressive 5,000 Superchargers since April of this year alone. This rapid rate of deployment is anticipated to continue, especially as Tesla plans to open the network to electric vehicles from other manufacturers and accelerates the rollout of its new Supercharger V4.

Beyond sheer numbers, Tesla has also signaled intentions to make the network more sustainable by incorporating renewable energy sources like solar power and batteries at its charging stations—a commitment that the company has made in the past but has yet to fully actualize.

Tesla’s Supercharger network has essentially curbed range anxiety for owners. It has quickly become the gold standard for DC fast-charging, eclipsing other charging options that have come online over the years. In fact, and as we know, competing automakers are slowly but surely switching over to Tesla’s NACS charge ports and before long, we suspect all brands will do the same globally.

And now, with this 50,000-stall milestone, Tesla’s Supercharger network further cements its position as a crucial pillar in the ongoing global transition to electric vehicles.
