“Interestingly, Tesla managed to register growth in superchargers despite the difficulties mainly related to the shortage of chips. Notably, in recent years, charging infrastructure companies have expressed concerns due to chip shortage factors, which have derailed the momentum of rolling out public charging options,” according to the Finbold report.

Overall, Tesla is likely to accelerate the installation of supercharger stations as the company adopts innovative technologies to reach more sites. Tesla still faces growing competition as other EV makers continue to unveil new products.
