Tesla is constantly expanding its vast network of Supercharger stations, both throughout the world and in its home country, the U.S. In an update from one charging station tracker this week, Tesla has reportedly surpassed 2,000 open and active Supercharger stations in the U.S., marking a major milestone in the automaker’s continued deployment of charging infrastructure.
Supercharger station tracker Supercharge.info reported on Tuesday that Tesla’s latest charging station had tipped the automaker past 2,000 sites in the U.S. As posted on X, the addition of Tesla’s Mojave, California 20-stall Supercharger station pushed the crowdsourced tracker past the milestone, marking a notable achievement as the automaker prepares to accommodate several other EV brands.

At the time of writing, Tesla’s addition of a Belton, Missouri station has pushed the total number of Supercharger stations in the U.S. up to 2,001, and the news comes ahead of many automakers adopting Tesla’s charging hardware.
Many automakers have announced plans to build their future electric vehicles (EVs) with Tesla’s charging port this year, officially adopting the so-called North American Charging Standard (NACS). The move will give many non-Tesla EV drivers access to the Supercharger network, starting as soon as 2024 for some companies, with some new EV models including Tesla’s hardware by 2025.
The Supercharger network represents the largest set of charging stations in the U.S., though some current Tesla owners are concerned that opening it up may cause increased congestion at the sites. For that reason, Tesla’s rollout of new Superchargers is imperative.
The news of Tesla’s 2,000th charging station in the U.S. also comes after the automaker last month built its 50,000th Supercharger stall, painted Ultra Red to commemorate the milestone. The achievement came after Tesla celebrated its 45,000th Supercharger stall in April.
In Tesla’s Q1 Update Letter shared earlier this year, the automaker said that its Supercharger stations worldwide had jumped 33 percent year over year in the first quarter. The automaker has also been deploying its Magic Dock hardware to several stations, which allows non-Tesla EVs with the Combined Charging System (CCS) port to charge seamlessly using Supercharger stalls.
