The electric car maker Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been testing the next generation of its supercharging stations and charging infrastructure at its Fremont factory in California.
Tesla’s Supercharger network will be extended from the Fremont facility to the Gigafactory in Nevada.
Musk said that Tesla would have its first Superchargers up and running by the end of the year and they will “really get to work on charging infrastructure, charging stations, getting them up and operating at a rate that is not only reasonable but also fast”.
In addition to Tesla’s Fremont plant, the company also has its Fremond factory in northern California and its other manufacturing facilities in Texas and California.
Tesla says it plans to open all of its production and assembly plants by the start of 2020.
Tesla is also developing a new factory in Arizona, the first in the US to do so.
Tesla is also considering expanding its battery plant in Michigan, where it will manufacture the Tesla Powerpack.
The Fremont Superchargber network has already been rolled out to some of its Fremon facilities, but the Gigawatt-scale network will take full advantage of the Tesla’s Gigafactories’ speed, reliability and price-performance advantages.
