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.

The way Google envisions a driverless future is at odds with automakers

Sep 15 2014 7:39am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Google, with its vision for a future where cars drive themselves, is putting itself at odds with an auto industry that shares its desire for safer, less-congested roads — yet won’t abide the “driverless” part. The clash pits the Internet giant, public for barely a decade, against companies that spent a century building the machines that put people behind the wheel of autos. As Google works to perfect a system in research labs and road tests to minimize the involvement o ...

Hybrid Highway: Racers, start your batteries!

Sep 14 2014 10:46am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Veteran watchers of Formula 1 could be forgiven if they were fretfully cranking the volume on their TV remote at the start of the 2014 season. Gone was the guttural howl of the 2.4-litre V8 that underscored the violent velocity of the world’s most technologically advanced motorcars. In its place was a bassy, many argue subdued, drone of a 1.6-litre turbo V6. To the consternation of many F1 aficionados, it was akin to buying a ticket for an Ozzy Osbourne concert on ...

“So we won’t have any apples for a while, but how would you like one of these lovely oranges?” That seems to be the line of questioning Tesla is running on customers marching into its stores ready to drop a $5000 deposit on the upcoming (and much delayed) Model X electric crossover. With the order cue for the X growing longer by the day—some reports say that more than 20,000 deposits have been placed—Tesla is trying ...
