US electric vehicle maker Tesla has released a progress report on its rollout of EV supercharger stations, with an updated global map revealing thousands of new stations either already being built or in the pipeline for construction.
According to the global map, the bulk of the estimated 10,000 “coming soon” supercharger stations will be installed in 2018/19 in North America, Europe, and China.
But Australia is getting its own boosted network, with another 18 supercharger stations planned for the east coast in both metropolitan regions and along “popular holiday routes, and one new charging station planned for Perth, Western Australia.
This itty bitty upstart is taking on the whole monopolistic and fossilized auto industry cabal. Will Tesla pull off making the big behemoths totally obsolete and bankrupt them? Time will tell, but right now the big 3 in the US are not even on the radar as far as electric vehicle sales, and they are falling further and further behind as Tesla races ahead, transforming the entire industry.
