Tesla Supercharger network has been growing steadily for the past couple of years. It was first introduced on September 24, 2012, when Tesla released 6 Supercharger stations. Around the beginning of 2021, there were over 23,200 Superchargers at 2,564 stations worldwide. That makes for an average of 9 chargers per station.
Out of these numbers, over 1,100 are located in North America, over 590 in Europe, and 500 in Asia. Tesla Supercharger network is expanding at a rapid speed. Data from Q2 2021 showed that on average, 3 stations per day were built.
Last week, Tesla opened its first two Supercharger stations in Africa, both in the country of Morocco. One is located all the way up north, in a city by the name of Tangier, while the second one is some 340 kilometers (210 miles) south, in Casablanca. Both stations have the capabilities of 150kW fast charging. For station location details, as well as directions, here are links to the official website:
This could mark a date when Tesla decided to expand itself to the African market. There are no service centers or open stores anywhere in Africa. Once they gather enough data from Supercharger stations, they might decide to open their first store down there shortly after.
One user on Twitter was quick to share pictures of the newly built stations:
