The Tesla Supercharger network is still one of the top reasons electric car buyers are convinced to buy a Tesla rather than another company’s electric car. The network was a critical competitive advantage identified years ago when surveying EV drivers and potential EV drivers, and it seems to be referenced every day in comments on CleanTechnica as a core competitive advantage for the Silicon Valley EV & clean energy giant. But rolling out vast superfast/ultrafast charging stations takes time, and a lot of money.
We are seeing manufacturers "gearing" up to manufacture EVs but many countries have made little headway with rolling out charging networks in their countries. We can expect the cost of ICE vehicles as well as fuel prices to rise as demand falls off (high volumes is what keeps margins low) and considering charging networks take time to establish it means transitioning could be slow (it took a long time for fuel stations to expand across countries in the early part of the 20th century).
Last year, I published a short review of the Tesla Supercharger network's tremendous evolution from
