Tesla planning to turn its Supercharger stations into convenience stores
The process of charging an electric car takes much longer than the conventional process of refueling vehicles with gasoline. Eyeing a possible solution to engage customers during charging process, Tesla is now mulling a plan to transform some of its charging stations into convenience stores.
The e-carmaker has revealed that it is working on a plan to sell cold beverages, snacks and some other eatables from convenience stores located adjacent to its Supercharger stations.
J.B. Straubel, the company’s chief technology officer, gave a presentation at FSTEC about the company’s plan to create convenience stores at some of its Supercharger stations across the United States.
Revealing the plan, Straubel explained, “People are coming and spending 20 to 30 minutes at these stops. They want to eat, they want to have a cup of coffee, and they want to use the bathroom.”
It may be noted here that FSTEC is the industry’s largest food tech conference that normally takes place once a year.
However, Tesla has no interest in managing full-service food operations. The company has been working with restaurants. Last year, Tesla signed a partnership deal with US-chain Ruby Tuesday to build e-car chargers in the restaurant chain’s parking lots.
