Las Vegas, known for its glitz and glamour, will soon shine brighter for electric vehicle (EV) enthusiasts. Tesla is gearing up to significantly expand its Supercharger network in the heart of Sin City.
Powering Up the Entertainment Capital
Tesla has always been at the forefront of EV charging infrastructure, and Las Vegas stands as a testament to this commitment. With several Superchargers dotted around the city, such as the 24 V3 chargers on S. Las Vegas Boulevard, 12 V3 stalls at the city’s Convention Center, and 16 V3 Superchargers at the Red Rock west of downtown, Tesla has laid down its charging roots. Yet, the company sees the need to expand.
“The demand for charging locations for drivers of the company’s vehicles is increasing,” Tesla reportedly noted on a curbside sign.
Recognizing the growth in EV adoption and preparing for an influx of non-Tesla EVs accessing their chargers next Spring, the auto giant plans to introduce over 75 new charging stalls by the end of 2023.
Upcoming Additions to Tesla’s Network
The bustling shopping hub of Arroyo Crossing, which boasts a Wal-Mart among other retail outlets, will be one of the recipients of the new charging stations. Others are slated for W. Russell Rd. and S. Decatur Blvd, and another at E. Pebble Rd. and S. Maryland Pkwy. Current construction is underway on S. Fort Apache Rd. and Paseo Verde Pkwy. in Henderson, NV, southeast of downtown Las Vegas.
Las Vegas is not just about residents. It’s a global tourist hotspot. “Las Vegas is not only a highly-populated area, but its entertainment and nightlife bring in millions of tourists every year,” the source highlighted. As electric cars gain traction, Tesla’s move ensures both visitors and locals won’t be left searching for a charging spot.
With Tesla’s aggressive expansion, Sin City prepares to cater to the booming electric vehicle community. It’s not just about business growth but about envisioning a future where electric cars rule the roads. As of Q2’s end, Tesla boasted 5,265 Supercharger stations worldwide with 48,082 total connectors, according to Teslarati. This new venture ensures that number will only climb, solidifying Tesla’s dedication to a greener future
