Tesla Supercharger use recovering after initial blow from coronavirus pandemic

Tesla Supercharging

Last month Tesla CEO Elon Musk shared a startling graph, showing a huge drop in Supercharger use around the world as the coronavirus pandemic spread across the globe.

Now as economies are beginning to reopen in some areas and a somewhat pre-covid way of life has started to return, Musk has provided an updated graph showing promising growth in Supercharger use.

Supercharger use coronavirus June update

The most interesting statistic from the graph is the level of use in the APAC (Asia Pacific) region, and China, which was the first area to be impacted by the pandemic.

As of June 10, 2020, both regions had Supercharger use above pre-pandemic levels, representing new all-time highs. This indicates both how quickly the region has been able to recover from the impacts of the virus, and also the growing demand for electric vehicles in China.

We can also see from the graph that usage in North America (NAM) is growing as well, but is still lagging behind the recovery rate of China and APAC. The trend line for Europe is very similar to that of North America’s, but is still slightly behind overall.
