Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) announced that they are trying to make it easier for city residents who own electric cars without charging stations at home or work by expanding their supercharger network at city centers. Urban Supercharger stations will also be placed at supermarkets and shopping malls, allowing people to charge their cars while they run errands, the company said.

The new stations, which take up less space and are easier to install that previous models, can deliver 72 kilowatts of dedicated power to each auto.

Australia's Advertising Standards Bureau has received 50 complaints since the campaign launched a week ago. The industry body said that it was meeting community groups to respond to their concerns.


Tesla also said that the new Superchargers have a "post" design to conserve space in more crowded urban environments. Today, there are around 1,000 supercharger stations globally, with more than 6,500 superchargers in total. Expanding them to grocery stores, shopping centers and other central locales might just make electric vehicle ownership more appealing to city-dwellers. A 10-stall location is to open in Chicago and an 8-stall site is to be opened in Boston where chargers will deliver less power than those located along highways or at longer distance locations such as hotels and resorts.

The burgeoning electric auto market has a way to go before it's on par with traditional petrol and diesel vehicles in the USA, but sales are looking promising, with Tesla helping to drive fully electric model sales up 47 percent so far in 2017.
