Tesla's network of Superchargers enable Tesla drivers to recharge their cars in as little as an hour. This growing charging infrastructure is viewed as a competitive advantage for Tesla, as it improves customer experience and reduces range anxiety. The service is offered as a free perk with the Model S and X vehicles although Model 3 owners need to pay. The total number of Superchargers charging points globally has grown from about 9.3k to 14.7k between Q1'18 and Q3'19, although it is growing slower than cumulative deliveries, meaning that waiting times and user experience could take a hit.Below, we take a look at how Tesla's supercharger network is expanding and compare its growth with the company's cumulative deliveries and rival charging networks.
Tesla's Supercharger network has grown from around 1,200 stations in Q1'18 to over 1,650 stations as of Q3'19The number of Supercharger connectors, which indicate the number of vehicles that can be charged simultaneously has expanded from 9.3k to 14.7k in the same period. The number of Supercharger connectors per station has expanded from 7.7 to 8.9
Super Charging Connectors Per Station
Tesla also has a network of slower charting Destination Chargers, located at at hotels, malls, and restaurants. The number of Destination chargers has increased from 19.2k in in Q2'18 to 23.9k in Q3'19.

Tesla's Supercharger Network is growing at a slower pace compared to its Vehicle DeliveriesWhile Tesla's Cumulative deliveries have grown from 320k in Q1'19 to 790k in Q3'19, driven by the launch of the Model 3 sedan, its Supercharger connectors have grown from 9.3k to 14.7k in the same period.This means that the number of Vehicles per Connector has grown from under 35 to about 54.

While Tesla's Super Charger network is expanding, the company's chargers might be getting more congested, post the launch of the Model 3 which has increased the ratio of Teslas on the road to the number of Superchargers. That said, Tesla is still far ahead of the competition in terms of fast chargers and this does provide the company a competitive advantage of sorts. Moreover, Tesla owners can use third-party networks (which may require adapters) although Tesla's superchargers are exclusive to the company's vehicles.
