Tesla Superchargers Per Capita — Graphs Rank Countries Around The World

Which countries around the world possess the highest number of Tesla Superchargers per capita?

Interesting question, with a somewhat unsurprising answer, if you’ve been following Tesla-related news the past few years — Norway comes out on top, and many of the countries right below it are the ones that you’d expect. Still, it’s interesting to see it represented visually. Here you go:


These rankings were put together using the data available at and population data taken from Wikipedia, by the folks over at Sustainnovate.

Another interesting visualization provided by them is this graph (below), showing the rankings if they include Supercharger sites currently under construction or awaiting the beginning of construction after permits have been obtained.


Here’s the explanation behind the idea, via Sustainnovate:

Of course, the need or usefulness of Superchargers isn’t actually based on population, but rather number of Tesla owners and geography. However, the former is not known (by country) and the latter would not be useful simply comparing the geographic size of a country, as there are large portions of certain countries (such as Canada and Norway) that are relatively uninhabited.

In any case, this was all just a fun exericise and the creation of some fun charts for Tesla fanatics.

Fair point on the usefulness of larger networks. And, of course, the “usefulness” quotient is one that seems to track quite closely with the relative wealth of a country. The obvious connection being that the wealthier a country is, the more likely that its citizens can afford a Model S. (Not that that’s the only reason Norway is the clear leader.)

Maybe that correlation will be something that changes somewhat with the release of Tesla’s forthcoming “affordable” EV.
