Tesla Announces Supercharger Network Expansion for Germany

Germany to have more Supercharger locations per capita than any other country

Tesla has announced that it plans some significant changes in Germany for its Supercharger quick vehicle charging network. Tesla plans to accelerate the deployment of Superchargers in Germany and will break ground on new locations over the next month. The new locations will be placed in locations designed to energize corridors between Munich and Stuttgart, Munich and Zürich, and Cologne and Frankfurt.

Tesla says it will also quickly expand its network include routes between Frankfurt and Stuttgart and Stuttgart and Zürich. Tesla expects to have more than half of Germany covered by its Supercharger network by March of 2014.

Tesla expects to have the entire country covered by the end of 2014 giving Germany more superchargers per capita than any other country. Tesla also notes that all of the Superchargers in Germany will be power upgraded to 135 kW. Any automaker and vehicle brand capable of charging at 135 kW will be able to use the Supercharger network.

10 Green Cars that Don’t Suck: Eco-Excellence at All Price Points

Aug 27 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Green as in economical with fuel but stingy on fun, great with emissions but lousy to pilot. Green cars are hybrids, diesels, and electric cars stripped to the point of making a rotted ox cart seem luxurious. E ...
