Tesla has announced that it is turning to the public to help decide where to locate its next Superchargers as the automaker continues to expand its network of EV fast-charging stations in North America, Europe and Asia.
Tesla Chargings twitter account wrote in a tweet on Friday: “Supercharger Voting coming soon. Reply with location suggestions — replies with the most likes will be included in the poll.”
The online poll comes as Tesla prepares to open up its Supercharger network to other electric vehicles by the end of the year.
The rollout could help Tesla attract new buyers while boosting traffic and profits across the Supercharger network. It could also put pressure on the network, particularly in areas like California where there is a higher percentage of Teslas and other EVs.
Replies to the tweet have suggested Alaska, Hawaii and Vancouver Island in British Columbia. This is along with U.S National Parks as holidaymakers generally travel long distances through rural areas.
Tesla already operates more than 35,000 Superchargers worldwide, allowing drivers to add up to 200 miles in 15 minutes. Tesla have also talked of expanding their supercharges beyond Tesla’s and allow other car brands to use their infrastructure.
