Tesla is actively expanding its network of charging stations and recently celebrated the installation of over 25,000 stalls. One of the most interesting was the location, which reaches almost the top of our planet, literally. Tesla has launched a Supercharger at the Everest base camp.
Tesla China is actively expanding its Supercharger network as the popularity of the company's cars continues to grow. Among hundreds of new chargers, the company has also already reached the base camp at Mount Everest. Tesla has installed 11 new Superchargers along the highly scenic and popular route from Chengdu to Tengri, making the journey even more enjoyable for its customers. Tesla China wrote:
“We drove over 2500+ kilometers, across 13 sea levels 4000+ miles high, passing 20+ famous landscapes.”
The highest and steepest point where the Supercharger is installed is the Roof of the World Hotel in Tibet, Tingri, where the Everest base camp is located. This means that Tesla owners will now be able to travel to one of the most picturesque places in the world without worrying about charging.
In September 2020, the first Tesla reached Everest base camp, which may have prompted the company to plan this route. A traveler from China made a breathtaking journey via which he climbed Mount Everest with his Tesla Model 3 AWD Long Range. The traveler successfully covered 5,500 kilometers (3,418 miles) on Highway 318: Shenzhen-Chengdu-Lhasa-Mount Everest. All the way to Everest, charging was not a problem. The power reserve of the car was enough for driving during the day. And at night the traveler stayed in hotels with charging points. But now, with Tesla Superchargers, this journey will become even more convenient.
