It may be easier to own and drive a Tesla in 2018, as the electric car company expects to add at least a dozen Supercharger stations in the District, Maryland, and Virginia by the end of the year.
The District is expected to see its first stations open this year, with three to near Columbia Heights and in the northeast and southeast parts of the city, respectively. Meanwhile, the company has eyes on adding stations in Bethesda, Greenbelt, Beltsville, and Annapolis in Maryland, in addition to spots further north in Baltimore and Halethorpe.
In Virginia, drivers could see four stations, including ones in Fairfax, Gainesville, Arlington, and Tysons.
Tesla has not identified the specific locations of the new Supercharger stations, or a specific timeline for installation.
As of December, there were 1,045 Supercharger stations around the globe, with about 450 in the United States. The Supercharger can fully charge a car in about 75 minutes.
