Tesla has now at least 25,000 supercharging stalls around the world which squarely puts them in front in the DC charging market.
Tesla on social media announced the fete by simply saying: 25k Superchargers around the world — and counting.

Tesla’s first stations were installed in the US in 2012 to support the market launch of the Tesla Model S. Over the first few years, in most cases, they were offering up to 120 kW of power.
Now they have been upgraded to offer output to 150 kW (V2 Superchargers) and introduced V3 Superchargers ready for up to 250 kW.
In November 2020, the number was at 20,000 stalls, and continuing at that pace means they might hit 30,000 by end of 2021 and even 40K when it clocks 10 years.
The Tesla Supercharging network differs from the general DC fast charging networks because so far it’s been available only for Tesla cars.
