The Supercharger network is one of Tesla's biggest assets and an important reason people buy a Tesla EV over other brands. However, after opening up the Supercharger network to other EV brands, people think Tesla owners would face challenges finding an available charger. Tesla is working hard to expand the network, with a future Supercharger station in Florida set to become the world's largest.
Tesla Supercharger network is expanding at a fast pace, with new locations announced every week. Tesla recently announced surpassing 50,000 charging stalls worldwide, an important milestone that consolidates its position as the largest fast-charging network in the world.

To be fair, Tesla will have to build as many Supercharger stations as possible and do it fast. The NACS deals Tesla stroke with other EV makers have started to enter effect, with Ford and Rivian owners already allowed to use Tesla's chargers. As more EV brands use the Supercharger stations, finding an available charge would become more difficult, especially in congested areas. This is why expanding the Supercharger network is Tesla's number one priority.

This doesn't only mean new locations to cover the busiest roads but also more stalls per station to allow more people to charge simultaneously. Tesla already owns the most extensive fast-charging network in the world. Now, it's in the process of expanding the footprint of its stations. New builds also feature an incredible number of stalls.

We've already seen Tesla complete an 84-stall station in Quartzsite, Arizona, and another one in Coalinga, California, featuring 98 stalls. In February, Tesla filed plans for a 164-stall Supercharger station in Kern County, California. At the time, that was the largest station Tesla had in plan. However, the EV maker will topple that with an even bigger Supercharger station in Florida.

Site plans filed during the March pre-application meeting with Osceola County show that Tesla will build its largest-ever station in Yeehaw Junction. The plans show this mega-station to be located at 3010 State Rd. 60, off exit 193 on the Florida Turnpike. This used to be one of the busiest intersections in the region, but it has lost its importance in the past decades.

Preliminary drafts shared by Canadian Supercharger passionate Marco (@MarcoRPi1) show that the upcoming station will have 200 charging stalls. This includes 160 prefabricated Supercharger units (PSUs) and 40 standalone stalls (no power sharing), including eight pull-through stalls for EVs with trailers. Not all stalls will be built from the get-go, with the project being split into three construction phases.

The plans appear to show at least four Megapack storage batteries. Also, given the huge number of stalls and the region, this station will undoubtedly feature a solar canopy. Keep in mind that these are preliminary plans, though, and Osceola County could require Tesla to make changes to the design, including reducing the number of stalls.
