    I will update this thread once per quarter with news of competition for the Supercharger network.

    As of Q1 2016 there are zero competitors. Audi said a couple weeks ago that the German auto industry needs to get off its ass and build one.

    Aside from that - zilch.

    See you back in this thread at the end of Q2 2016 to see if the landscape has changed. Until next time folks. . .

    Audi, a German company, says that Germany has to build one. Toyota, a Japanese company, says that Japan, the US, and California, have to build a hydrogen network. Who does Tesla, a US company, tell? Oh, right...

    UPDATE: As of Q4 2016 Porsche claims to be in talks to build its own Tesla-compatible fast-charge network.

    Porsche to build its own fast-charging network: 150 kW and Tesla capable?

    "Porsche CEO Oliver Blume tells TopGear that the company is working with other organizations to create a fast charging network which will also be made available to Tesla owners through the use of an adapter. “We are in contact with other manufacturers and suppliers around the world to build a fast-charging network. Everybody has the same need. It sounds easy but getting the details agreed is hard. We already have the clear technical concept. It can even work with Teslas, with an adapter.”, says Blume."
