Tesla Supercharging Community: 318 Stations Added In Q2 2023

Throughout the second quarter of 2023, Tesla continued to rapidly broaden its Supercharging community, reaching fairly stable outcomes.

The variety of new stations amounted to 318 (up 29 p.c year-over-year), which is the third highest quarterly outcome to date.

The variety of new particular person connectors elevated by 16 p.c year-over-year to 2,913. On this case additionally, that is the third highest quarterly outcome.

The typical ratio of connectors per station amounted to 9.2 (in comparison with 10.2 a 12 months in the past).

It is going to be attention-grabbing to see whether or not Tesla will be capable of improve the speed of recent set up and beat its earlier information from This fall 2020 and This fall 2022.

Quarterly outcomes (change year-over-year:

  • New stations: 318 (up 29%)
  • New particular person connectors (stalls): 2,913 (up 16%)
  • Connectors (stalls) per station on common: 9.2 (down 10%)

As of the top of the quarter, Tesla elevated the cumulative variety of Supercharging stations and stalls:

  • Stations: 5,262 (up 33% year-over-year)
  • Particular person connectors (stalls): 48,082 (up 33% year-over-year)
  • Connectors (stalls) per station on common: 9.1 (up 0.3% year-over-year)

This quarter, Tesla is anticipated to succeed in a significant milestone of fifty,000 put in Supercharging stalls.

The variety of Tesla Supercharging stalls (globally):

  • 1st: September 2012
  • 10,000: June 2018
  • 20,000: November 2020
  • 30,000: November 2021 (+10,000 in 1 12 months)
  • 35,000: June 2022 (+5,000 in roughly 7 months)
  • 10 years: September 2012-2022
  • Europe (10,000): October 5, 2022
  • 40,000: November 2022 (+10,000 in 1 12 months)
  • China (10,000): December 26, 2022
  • 45,000: April 9, 2023 (+5,000 in lower than 5 months, +10,000 in 10 months)

If all the 48,000+ stalls have been powered concurrently, at 100 kW common (for illustrative functions), the entire output could be over 4.8 GW.

Non-Tesla Supercharging

Moreover, Tesla continues to broaden the Non-Tesla Supercharger Pilot, which at present is obtainable at choose stations in some markets.

The Non-Tesla Supercharger Pilot program consists of:

It is value noting that in July 2023, there was a report Tesla that’s making ready V4 Supercharging stalls with a contactless financial institution card reader and an area for a small show as a further step to make the infrastructure accessible to non-Tesla EV drivers.

Supercharging Energy

As of at the moment, Tesla Superchargers supply a peak energy output of as much as 250 kW, however it’s anticipated to extend.

There have been reviews about 300 kW and extra sooner or later, and a rumor about 324 kW within the case of V3 Superchargers.

Lately, Tesla launched its first V4 Superchargers, which unofficially are anticipated to succeed in 350 kW and probably may exceed 600 kW (assuming present and voltage limits, described on the V4 stalls), however it might require set up of recent 1,000 V, high-power chargers (energy digital cupboards).

Tesla Superchargers peak output:

Individually, Tesla is constructing quick chargers for electrical vehicles (Tesla Semi) – recognized additionally as Tesla Megachargers), that are promised to supply a megawatt charging stage.

Charging requirements

In This fall 2022, Tesla introduced the opening of its proprietary charging commonplace, which will likely be known as the North American Charging Normal (NACS). In Could 2023, Ford introduced the change from CCS1 to NACS in North America (beginning in 2025). The transfer was adopted by Common Motors and, since then, a number of different EV producers, charging networks and charging tools producers announed help of NACS.

In Q2 2023 monetary report, Tesla famous:

“The 2nd quarter of 2023 has been the quarter of Supercharging. A major variety of firms, together with Ford, GM, Mercedes, Nissan, Polestar, Rivian, Volvo and Electrify America, have introduced adoption of NACS – a charging commonplace developed by Tesla over a decade in the past – for his or her North American merchandise. Additional opening our charging community in 2024 will allow each quicker market conversion from combustion autos to EVs in addition to quicker development of our charging community by a bigger addressable fleet.”

Individually, Tesla began to retrofit its chargers in North America with an answer (“Magic Dock”) to cost additionally electrical autos appropriate with the CCS Combo 1/J1772 Combo commonplace. A small variety of such stations (V3) have been already put in.

In Europe (and a lot of the remainder of the world), new Tesla automobiles are outfitted with a CCS Combo 2 appropriate charging inlet for each AC and DC charging.

In China, the corporate makes use of GB/T charging inlets (one for AC and one for DC charging).

Tesla Supercharging plugs fluctuate relying available on the market:

  • North America (and another markets, like South Korea, and Japan): a proprietary charging commonplace, named the North American Charging Normal (NACS) by Tesla
    • With the Magic Dock (built-in CCS1 adapter), Supercharging stalls are capable of cost CCS1-compatible, non-Tesla EVs
  • Europe (and a lot of the remainder of the world): CCS2-compatible charging commonplace
    Initially, there was a distinct plug, appropriate with AC Sort 2 inlets, utilized by Tesla for DC charging (the inlet served for 1- or 3-phase AC charging, in addition to for DC charging at Superchargers). With the launch of the Mannequin 3 in Europe (and the next fashions – Mannequin Y, refreshed Mannequin S/Mannequin X), Tesla switched to CCS2-compatible charging inlet, and retrofitted Superchargers with CCS2-compatible plugs for DC charging. Most of the Superchargers at the moment are outfitted with two totally different plugs, however the newer, CCS2-compatible are the best way to go ahead.
  • China: GB/T-compatible charging commonplace (two inlets on car facet: one for AC and one for DC charging)
