Telsa says the Supercharger delivers power directly to the battery at nearly 100 kW (and could go up to 120 kw in the future). That’s around twice as powerful as the 50-kilowatt fast chargers that other EVs like the Nissan Leaf can take advantage of in charging their much smaller batteries.
Meanwhile, the Supercharger network will grow, Tesla said: “By next year, we plan to install Superchargers in high traffic corridors across the continental United States, enabling fast, purely electric travel from Vancouver to San Diego, Miami to Montreal and Los Angeles to New York. Tesla will also begin installing Superchargers in Europe and Asia in the second half of 2013.
