Tesla has officially arrived in Alaska with the opening of its first Supercharger station in Soldotna. Four V3 stalls will be the northernmost in North America.
A Tesla Supercharger station is finally arriving in Alaska. The first location is Soldotna, about a three-hour drive from Anchorage. The new charging station is located on AK-1 in Whistle Hill, which has a new lounge area with two restaurants. There are already three Tesla Destination chargers out there, and the Supercharger will complement those. The charging station consists of four V3 stalls to provide owners with the fastest charging the company has to offer to date.
At the end of August, it was noticed that construction work had begun at the location, and now the construction has been completed. Tesla officially unveiled the Supercharger station on Friday and announced that it is open and ready for use.
At the moment, no plans are known to further expand Tesla's presence in the state, however usually, a charging station is the first sign of further expansion in a market. The location of the new Supercharger also indicates that Tesla cares about its customers around the world.
