  • Tesla wants to crowdsource its next Supercharger location
  • The firm has one of the biggest charging networks in the world
  • Several users have already responded to Tesla Charging's tweet

Tesla will allow users to select the next location of its Supercharger for fast charging the company's electric vehicles (EVs) on Twitter. The firm revealed on Thursday that it would allow users to vote on the company's next Supercharger location via a poll, after they suggested locations that required the company's fast EV chargers. Tesla's Superchargers can add up to 200 miles (or 321 km) worth of charge in 15 minutes, according to the company, which operates one of the largest fast charging networks in the world. 

On Thursday, Tesla's dedicated Twitter account for charging (@TeslaCharging) tweeted: "Supercharger Voting coming soon. Reply with location suggestions – replies with the most likes will be included in the poll." However, before users can vote, they will have to suggest locations that will eventually be part of the company's poll. 

The tweet asking users to provide locations reveals that the poll will be the second phase of the company's attempt to identify the next location for its Superchargers. Several users have already responded to the tweet with screenshots of maps with empty areas circled, revealing the lack of Superchargers in those locations. 

At the moment, there is no word from the Tesla Charging account on when the crowdsourced poll to pick the next Supercharger location will go live. The company might allow users the ability to add more locations as responses before it creates a poll asking users to pick a new location. 

Tesla hasn't specified if the poll will be held on Twitter. It's worth noting that Twitter polls only allow users to pick one out of four options, so Tesla might eventually have to select only four of the responses that receive the most likes. It is possible that the company will eventually work towards adding Superchargers to most locations suggested by users via the crowdsoucing initiative.
