The Chargemap benchmark app has unveiled its rankings for the top electric vehicle charging networks in Europe. According to feedback from the app's users, the Tesla Supercharger Network emerged as the preferred choice, offering the most comprehensive charging experience for electric vehicle enthusiasts in the region.
In a blog post detailing its discoveries, Chargemap highlighted that an impressive 112,000 users contributed to the rankings, sharing their personal charging encounters and generating over 390,000 ratings on the platform. The aggregated reviews, spanning from April 20, 2023, to December 31, 2023, were meticulously considered based on criteria such as overall charging satisfaction, infrastructure reliability, and value for money.
Tesla Europe & Middle East's official account on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, underscored the achievement of the Tesla Supercharger Network. According to the rankings published by Chargemap, Tesla's Supercharger Network secured the top spot, outpacing competitors such as Fastned and Electra. The top five charging networks in Europe, as determined by Chargemap's users, also included Carrefour and Chargy.
Notably, the Supercharger Network demonstrated commendable performance in terms of infrastructure reliability and value for money. In the category of infrastructure reliability in Europe, Tesla Superchargers claimed the second position, just trailing behind Fastned. Furthermore, the Supercharger Network secured the fourth position, following the French Orléans Métropole network, NW IECharge, and the Lidl network, in terms of value for money.
The global footprint of the Tesla Supercharger Network has expanded to encompass 5,952 stations worldwide, boasting a total of 54,892 connectors, as outlined in the company's Q4 and FY 2023 Update Letter. Noteworthy is the ongoing increase in Supercharger installations, particularly in response to the adoption of the North American Charging Standard (NACS).
The influence of the Supercharger Network extends beyond the United States and Europe, reaching countries like Australia. According to Next System's Australian Electric Vehicle Public Fast Charger Report, Tesla's Supercharger V3 Network contributed approximately 60% of all new charging capacity in the country during the fourth quarter of 2023.
