Tesla’s large network of proprietary public charge points continues to rapidly expand. In addition to the high-power Superchargers placed along well-traveled highways, the company has been deploying destination chargers at locations where drivers would want to stay for several hours at a time: like hotels, ski resorts, and restaurants.

According to data in PlugShare’s latest quarterly infrastructure report, both Superchargers and the lower-powered destination chargers saw large increases in US installations in 2015 Q3.
