On Thursday, his Twitter account dedicated to charging Tesla (@TeslaCharging) tweeted: However, users will have to suggest a location before voting, which will eventually become part of the company’s vote. The tweet, asking users to provide their location, indicates that the research will be the second phase of the company’s attempt to locate the nearest Supercharger. Several users have already responded to the tweet with screenshots of maps circled in empty areas, revealing that there are no Superchargers in those locations.
Tesla will allow users to select the nearest Supercharger location on Twitter to quickly charge the company’s electric vehicles (EVs). The company announced Thursday that it will allow users to vote for the company’s next supercharger location after suggesting where they want the company’s Rapid He EV chargers. Tesla Superchargers can charge up to 200 miles (or 321 km) in 15 minutes, according to the company that operates one of the world’s largest fast-charging networks.
At this time, there is no word from the Tesla Charging Account as to when the crowdsourced voting to select the next Supercharger location will begin. Company may allow users to add more locations as answers before creating a poll asking users to select a new location. Tesla did not disclose whether the vote will take place on his Twitter. Note that Twitter polls only allow users to select 1 out of 4 options, so Tesla only needs to select 4 of the answers that get the most likes. The company may eventually work to add Superchargers to most of the user-suggested locations through a crowdsourcing initiative.
