Ionity has started construction of 350kw ccs charging stations. 350kw charging is 3x faster than the Tesla supercharger and can give you 250km driving in just 10 minutes, it's getting closer to the convenience of petrol.

500-mile range? That's like half a day drive for truck drivers. There won't be enough charging stations for that. Is there a plan for that at Tesla?

I am fairly certain that with the number of truck stops that are spread throughout the U.S., many of them will more than likely have charging stations in place by then, especially in the eastern third of the country.
