Tesla said Thursday it is reaching out to the public to help determine where to place its next Superchargers as the automaker continues to expand its network of electric vehicle fast charging stations across North America, Europe and Asia.
The @TeslaCharging account tweeted on Thursday:
“Soon there will be a vote for a supercharger. Reply with location suggestions – the answers with the most likes will be included in the poll.”
Online survey takes place as Tesla prepares for open your Supercharger network to other electric vehicles by the end of the year. The rollout could help Tesla attract new customers by boosting traffic and profits on the Supercharger network. It could also put pressure on the grid, especially in areas like California where the percentage of Tesla and other electric vehicles is higher.
So far, the answers with the most likes suggest Alaska, Hawaii, and Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Responses also spoke of high demand in US national parks, which are often traveled long distances by vacationers through rural areas.
Tesla Already working over 35,000 superchargers worldwide, enabling drivers to reach up to 200 miles in 15 minutes.
