Reason behind Tesla Supercharger team disband

Elon Musk discussed the reasons behind disbanding Tesla's supercharger team.

Tesla was letting go of several key members of its Supercharger team in an unexpected move.

It was a small part of a larger effort to eliminate about 10% of the company's staff.

Musk said that Tesla would still grow the Supercharger network, although at a slower pace than before.

Also, the focus will now be on "100% uptime and expansion of existing locations."

Tesla recently opened Supercharger access to several automakers at North American charging locations. 

Some states, such as Hawaii and Alaska, have only a few Tesla Superchargers, offering drivers little to no options for charging.
