Tesla has marked a significant milestone by installing its 50,000th Supercharging stall. This newly unveiled charging station has captured attention due to its unique features that set it apart from the standard design.
The 50,000th Supercharger stall boasts a striking all-red appearance, a departure from the usual white and red color scheme. Notably, the shade of red used closely resembles the Ultra Red color featured on the Model S and Model X vehicles. A distinctive label reading “No 50,000” can also be spotted near the bottom of the dispenser.

While Tesla has kept the exact location under wraps, enthusiasts quickly identified it as Roseville, California, situated in the Sacramento area. The charging station is located at 1851 Freedom Way, Roseville, CA.

Despite its eye-catching appearance, there are no indications that this special charging stall differs from standard ones in terms of power output or charging cost. It is expected to function as a typical 250-kilowatt unit.
Tesla's Supercharger network is the largest of its kind, with over 5,000 stations globally and a continuously growing number of installations. This robust network is poised to maintain its position as the largest in the near future.
Looking ahead, Tesla's Superchargers are set to become more accessible to non-Tesla electric vehicles through a pilot program and the adoption of Tesla's NACS charging connector in North America by other manufacturers. As competition in the electric vehicle charging space intensifies, consumers can anticipate a range of options, including variations in charging power, pricing, location availability, reliability, and amenities.
