Tesla expands supercharger network in Europe

Tesla officially opens new supercharger locations connecting the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. These newly-energized routes will enable Model S customers to enjoy free, convenient, 100 per cent electric trips on the German
Autobahn and to destinations in the Alps and elsewhere.

Tesla's first six superchargers were energized in California in September 2012, with the first network of European supercharger stations opening in Norway less than a year later. As of today, 81 supercharger locations are energized worldwide, with 14 locations in Europe. More than 11-million kilometers have been charged by Tesla superchargers and nearly 1.13-million liters of gas have been offset.

The accelerated energizing of superchargers in Germany (Wilnsdorf, Bad Rappenau, Aichstetten and Jettingen), Switzerland (Lully), Austria (St. Anton) and the Netherlands (Zevenaar and Oosterhout) represents a new milestone in the expansion of the European network. In Germany, superchargers connect Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Munich. They also connect the German network to Amsterdam, Zurich, and Innsbruck. In the Netherlands, energized routes connect Amsterdam to Cologne and Brussels, and in Switzerland the stations connect Zurich and Geneva.

By the end of March 2014, 50 perc ent of the German population will live within 320 km of a supercharger, and 100 per cent of the population will be covered by the end of the year.
