Tesla CEO Elon Musk has once again made a bold promise (here’s a surprise) on the network of fast electric charging stations of the company known as Supercharger. This time it expects to cover 100% of Europe with its chargers by next year. Answering a question asked on Twitter, Musk stated that” from Ireland to Kiev, from Norway to Turkey, ” in 2019, the whole of Europe will be equipped with fast electric gas stations.
The Tesla Supercharger card shows a high concentration of fast charges in Western Europe. In countries such as Albania, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Serbia and Moldova, they do not exist.
Musk also outlined plans to focus on cities, particularly working with landlords and adding chargers to apartment buildings.
However, the Mask was corrected by the people of Kiev.

Musk then noted that the Supercharger would be installed “on all major highways in Texas, to Brownsville, and across Mexico.” However, the planned to complete charging in San Antonio and Austin has not yet been completed.
Also, the entrepreneur plans to supply Supercharger in Africa until 2020. They also do not exist on the African continent.
The Tesla Supercharger network was launched in 2012 to allow electric car owners to travel long distances. Supercharger adds up to 300 kilometers of range in 30 minutes.
Musk has already made bold promises about the network of charging stations. Although the company has achieved significant success and investments in the Supercharger network, it has not yet achieved its previously set goal.
In April 2017, Tesla said it would double the global Supercharger network from 5,400 to 10,000 devices by the end of the year. But managed to put only 8250 stations.
Earlier this year, Musk planned to install 18,000 charging stations around the world by the end of 2018. But now their 11583 (of them 1386 — station Supercharger).
