Surely this cannot be right? 1,000 supercharger stations in the USA? That's clearly not enough. When you look at the map it seems a lot, but the US is a big place, here in the UK we have over 130 supercharger stations, that works out that the USA has less per capita but how many teslas are sold in the USA compared to UK?
USA 332m people = 1 station for 332,000 people.
UK 68m people = 1 station for 523,000
I would have thought the USA would be further ahead with this, of course I've not looked into the other chargers but I'm betting we have far more per capita than the USA does, they are springing up everywhere. This needs to be pushed faster, otherwise the doomsdayers will say it cannot possibly work. Currently the UK has a target to stop production of fuel cars and this will drive a fast uptake and I can personally say, I have never waited at a Tesla charge point...yet, but I know it's coming as more people buy EVs.
On the other hand, most people I know who buy EVs are buying other manufacturers cars, mercedes, Renault etc...instead of Teslas and they may have a problem first as the swarms of people with their new EVs find places to plug in, that puts tesla owners in a better position as we have our own charger network, that might win sales in the future (next few years).
But the USA? can someone confirm this, there are only 1,000 stations available?
