Where are all the Tesla chargers? Top cities and when they were installed.

9 months ago by Joshua Fruhlinger in Facts

Make no mistake: The world is racing toward a future dominated by electric vehicles.

But we rarely stop to ponder the sharing infrastructure that will be necessary to assure that drivers will be able to get from point A to point B.

In the '40s and '50s, the gas station became a travel checkpoint, a place we refueled, recharged, and refreshed. Now Tesla is installing chargers in the parking lots of retail chains (the stores are happy to have people stop and shop, of course), rest stops, and more.

Here's a look at their current locations:

Perhaps more interesting, however, is Tesla's installation cycle - or, when they're installing new chargers.

Here's what charger openings looked like over the past couple years (keep in mind that at the time Thinknum started crawling the data in 2016, Tesla had already installed more than 3,000 locations):

As for where Tesla is installing the most chargers, top cities include New York, Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen.
