Tesla Ensures Germany, Netherlands Are Adequately Supercharged
In addition to pushing the construction of its Supercharger network in the United States at full tilt, Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) has also been hard at work laying out its proprietary charging infrastructure in Europe as the continent continues to warm up to Tesla’s popular Model S sedan.
This past week, Tesla officially opened new Supercharger locations that will connect the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria, allowing Tesla customers to travel on the famed German Autobahn to destinations in the Alps and, uh, “elsewhere.” Free of charge for Tesla owners, of course.
September 2012 saw the first six Supercharger stations constructed in California; less than two years later, Tesla boasts a network of 81 Supercharger setups worldwide, 14 of which are in Europe. “More than 11 million kilometers (6.835 million miles) have been charged by Tesla Superchargers and nearly 1.13 million liters (about 298,500 gallons) of gas have been offset,” the company said in a press release.
