Mercedes New Announcement About “High-Power” EV Charging Network Has Ignite The Sparks Of Tesla Vs Mercedes Face Off
Mercedes announced at CES this week its plans to launch a “high-power” EV charging network. With this announcement, many started commenting that Tesla will lose its supercharging advantage, in Tesla’s defense someone tweeted that “According to the MSM, Tesla with its current 40,000 superchargers has “already lost” apparently to Mercedes, who plan to build 2,500 chargers by 2027″.

It is not accurate to say that Tesla has “lost” to Mercedes based on the number of charging stations each company has. The charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs) is a complex issue and there are many factors to consider beyond the number of charging stations.
For example, the location and accessibility of charging stations, the speed, and reliability of the charging experience, and the overall convenience for EV owners are all important considerations. In addition, the charging infrastructure needs of different EV manufacturers may vary depending on their specific vehicle models and target markets.
It is also worth noting that the deployment of charging infrastructure is an ongoing process and the situation can change over time. It is important for EV manufacturers to have a comprehensive strategy for charging infrastructure, but it is also important for them to be adaptable and responsive to the needs of their customers.
This comparison is pointless as this is a great initiative for companies like Mercedes but comparing it with what Tesla has already done is not right and this comparison has led to arguments between fans of both companies and is seriously baseless.
