Tesla Pulling Out of Supercharger Leases After Firing Entire Supercharger Team

Victor Tangermann

Range Anxiety
Tesla CEO Elon Musk isn't wasting any time in pulling out of one of his car company's key value propositions: its Supercharger network.

Earlier this week, news emerged that Musk was conducting yet another round of layoffs, including senior director of EV charging Rebecca Tinucci — alongside her 500-person-strong team.

Now, Electrek reports that the EV maker has backed out of four Supercharger location leases across the New York City area that were meant to address overcrowding at existing lots.


In other words, charging your Tesla at a Supercharger could soon get a whole lot more miserable — the direct result of Musk tightening the belt and making major cuts across the board in light of plummeting sales and a disastrous financial outlook.

The move is particularly confusing because just a few years ago, Musk had been a huge public believer in the Supercharger vision — even bragging about plans to open burger restaurants at the locations so that drivers could dine while their EVs charged.

Plenty of investors are blaming Musk for the company's wandering vision, saying he's alienated buyers and tanked the carmaker's reputation with his bizarre political outbursts and fixation on autonomous driving — all at the expense of basic services for Tesla drivers, like a reliable charging network.

Charging Deserts
Overcrowding at Superchargers, especially in busy city centers, has become a real issue. New York City passed new incentives to electrify ride-sharing vehicles, which made the situation even worse.

Tesla had promised to install 100 additional chargers around the city by the end of 2024. Given the latest news, however, those sites will likely never be realized.

Or at least, Tesla won't be operating them. EV charging company Revel has already expressed interest, per Electrek, in taking over three of the four sites where initial work had already begun.

In short, Musk's commitment to a core feature that sets it apart from its rapidly growing competition is seriously waning, highlighting just how much trouble the car company is.

The rest of the car industry has fallen woefully behind, struggling to provide a reliable — and fast enough — way to charge EVs in many parts of the country.

Perplexingly, Tesla is blowing a considerable lead. The carmaker is in a unique position, especially considering its fast-charging plug, the North American Charging Standard is quickly becoming ubiquitous across other car brands.

Tesla is making some drastic changes in a very short amount of time. Even the team designated to develop and market new vehicles was let go in its entirety during the second round of layoffs, which could have major repercussions for Tesla's alleged plans to build a cheaper passenger car.

Job market is crumbling all around us but prices remain high as fu#k on everything. They are gouging the fu#k outta the market before we go into a REAL RECESSION in 2025.

Only jobs that's paying and hiring physical labor, truck driving and skilled operational/manufacturing jobs. If you work in an office on computers and you ain't IT...sh1t might get spooky for you

Buy as much Gold or Silver ounce bars as you can and stash them because the dollar about to crash. They're setting the stage for that Cental Bank Coin bullsh1t.

Yeah some people don't think about the charging situation enough especially in big cities. When I got mine I was at a apartment complex that had public chargers so I used them for a month until I got my house. I have a charger in my garage so I'm good but I can see how it gets overcrowded. I see it all the time at the the chargers near my target store

The American industry is switching to NACS charging standard. Tesla was solely fronting the bill for this, now with the switch they don't feel the need to continue the expansion as the industry will do it for them.
