Tesla Unveils Plans for World’s Largest Megacharging Station in Florida

April 07, 2024 – Tesla has announced plans to construct a megacharging station in Florida, USA, which is set to become the world’s largest with over 200 charging stalls.

Located in Yeehaw Junction, specifically at 3010 State Road 60, close to the intersection of Florida’s Turnpike exit 193 and Interstate 95, the proposed charging station emerged from a pre-application meeting held last month between Tesla and Osceola County.

Although the project is still in its infancy, plans reveal that it will comprise approximately 160 V3 Superchargers and 40 standalone chargers, eight of which will cater to trailers with pull-through spaces. According to Tesla enthusiast MarcoRPi1, the station will be built and opened in three phases.

Documents show that GPD Group Inc. has been tasked with the construction, and the site plan also includes up to four Megapack battery storage units, potentially positioned near the power distribution cabinets.

This expansion comes on the heels of Tesla’s recent submission to build another large charging station in Kern County, California, with 164 charging stalls, surpassing the size of any currently operating Supercharger stations. Some of Tesla’s larger operational stations include Harris Ranch in Coalinga, California (98 stalls), and Quartzsite in Arizona (84 stalls).

In related news, Tesla has begun opening its Supercharger network to other electric vehicle brands. Last month, the company announced that Ford and Rivian electric vehicles would now have access to Tesla charging stations. Future plans may also include opening the network to GM, Polestar, and Volvo electric vehicles.

Furthermore, Tesla is developing a uniquely designed Supercharger station in Los Angeles, California. This station will feature a 1950s-style diner, a drive-in movie theater with a double screen, and approximately 32 charging stalls.
