Tesla is adding more electric vehicles to the roads at a fast pace and to support its ecosystem, the EV maker has also been quickly expanding its Supercharger network. The company recently opened the world’s new largest Supercharger station with 56 charging points.
Pictures of the charging station were posted on Twitter by Tesla Owners East Bay page showing EV owners charging their cars at the station.
The charging network is located between the Bay Area and Los Angeles – two of Tesla's biggest markets in the world, as per Electrek. Supercharger networks enable fast-charging for long-distance travel.
