Tesla’s Supercharger network is expanding rapidly ahead of the company’s plans to open to Supercharger network to non-Tesla vehicles, and in Texas, a report of a brand new Supercharger station has also surfaced.

Round Rock, Texas city officials confirmed on Thursday that the city would be breaking ground on a new Tesla Supercharger Station, according to Community Impact (via @AustinTeslaClub).

The station is set to be established near the Market at Round Rock shopping center at 110 N., just off of I-35.

The Tesla Supercharger station will include 16 charging stalls and will be built near Freddie’s Frozen Custard and Corner Bakery. The project will be funded in part by a $150,000 USD investment into electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, as shown in filings with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

Officials will break ground on the Supercharger station within the next two weeks, and the stalls are expected to be completed and operational by the end of 2021. A V3 Tesla Supercharger can reportedly charge a Tesla vehicle to about 200 miles in just about 15 minutes.

In preparation for expanding its charging network around the world, Tesla shared new job postings related to the Supercharger network last month, in cities including Phoenix, Denver, Albuquerque, Oklahoma City, Austin, Dallas, and Houston.
