Using advanced technology for stress-free, efficient EV journeys
Tesla’s Trip Planner is a feature that transforms the electric vehicle (EV) driving experience, providing an efficient and intelligent route to your destination by considering a variety of factors including driving style, temperature, traffic, and charger availability.
“Every single car is doing its own air traffic control calculation,” says the Tesla team. “With that information, we know how full a particular site is and if there are people waiting at the site and we’ll automatically route you through charging stations with less congestion.”
Accessibility and convenience of Superchargers
With over 45,000 Superchargers globally, Tesla boasts the world’s largest fast-charging network. Strategically positioned on major routes near convenient amenities, Superchargers keep you powered when you’re away from home. Simply plug in, charge, and get back on the road.
Simplified charging process
Using a Supercharger is straightforward – plug in, and the charging process starts automatically. The Tesla app enhances the experience by allowing you to view Supercharger stall availability, monitor your charge status, and get notifications when your car is ready to hit the road.
Quick and efficient charging
Superchargers can add up to 200 miles of range in just 15 minutes. As charging beyond 80% is rarely necessary, charging stops are typically brief and convenient. Coupled with automatic battery preconditioning and the remarkable range of Tesla cars, drivers spend more time on the road and less time charging.
Addressing range anxiety with the Trip Planner
The Trip Planner isn’t just about getting you from point A to B; it’s about making your journey efficient and stress-free. It calculates the most optimal route based on factors such as driving style, elevation, temperature, traffic, and Supercharger availability. The aim is to enable freedom of travel for Tesla owners at a fraction of the cost of gasoline.
