Tesla adding charging stations in city centers

Tesla Urban Supercharger

Tesla bills them as the public equivalent of the Level 2 charger most owners of its vehicles have installed at home, where they'd typically recharge overnight. This shouldn't change even if two cars are plugged into adjacent Superchargers.

Now, Superchargers are going to push into city locations. The company's cars can be recharged quickly using the fastest available charging at almost 400 locations in the US.

NEW YORK (AP) - Tesla Inc.is building electric charging stations in city centers to attract urban buyers who don't have a garage to charge in.

The new Superchargers have a more compact design than the existing units, but according to Tesla, they can recharge at the same pace. Notably, it has a new post which both takes up less space and will be easier to install, the automaker claims. The new Supercharger stations also have new physical designs that allow them to take up less space, which is obviously better for tight-packed parking spots common for cities.

Merkel slams Turkish travel warning, says no need to fear Germany
German officials blocked rallies connected to Turkey's referendum campaign to expand the powers of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. According to the German Foreign Office, Yucil is one of at least 10 Germans now detained in Turkey on political charges.

American urban dwellers are in luck: Owning a Tesla has just gotten easier. To increase efficiency and support a high volume of cars, these Superchargers have a new architecture that delivers a rapid 72 kilowatts of dedicated power to each vehicle. "This creates a consistent, predictable charging experience with an average Supercharging session lasting around 45-50 minutes in city centers".

Tesla has created a new architecture capable of delivering 72kW of power to each auto at a station which should help eliminate the issue of slower charging when all Superchargers are being used simultaneously and allow more owners to use the same station.

There's another big charging issue it'll help address, however. With closer access to an urban Supercharger, however, they could top up regularly and then not have to worry about charging overnight.
