Tesla Supercharger Stations Have Cool Stats Screens

An interesting thread recently popped up on reddit’s /TeslaMotors subreddit that anyone interested in the nerdier side of EVs will probably appreciate. Stats! Furthermore, the quality of Tesla’s user experience just keeps getting better and better.

Some Tesla Supercharger stations now include large screens displaying all sorts of fun stats, including the “Top 10” most-used Tesla Supercharger stations, kWh demand at each of the stations, cars charged at each station, miles of driving enabled, average charging time, gallons of gasoline saved, and pounds of CO2 offset (all for each of the top 10 individual stations). And it shows which charging stalls are in use with nice little Tesla Model S visualizations.

There are also stats for all of Tesla’s 178 (and counting) Supercharger stations.

Here are two pics posted on the thread (click to see larger):

A couple of really interesting comments from the discussion thread were this one:

“If that last picture is the global kWh usage, then at a rough estimate of $0.12/kWh, it’s cost them $1.2M in electricity cost for the superchargers.”

And the first reply:

“Which is nothing, really – nearly 50,000 MS sold, works out to $24/car. That’s some cheap advertising. You have to factor in the supply costs too, which will be high for a 125kW+ supply, but not enormous.”

A mock-up Tesla Model X with styrofoam interior was also at the station.

Head over to reddit to see more, and join the conversation. Thanks to redditor jeffAA for sharing the photos and getting the discussion going.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
