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.

GM supports bill banning Tesla direct sales in Michigan

Oct 21 2014 2:35pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

According to this report by Jalopnik, GM wasn’t about to let people buy Teslas in Michigan without a fight. Tesla is unlike most automakers in that you can buy a Tesla directly from the manufacturer, without the need for a dealer. You simply pick the one you like, pay the price without any haggling, and your car is delivered to your door. You can even buy a Tesla over the phone. Naturally, this seems like a more desirable option than haggling with a dealer for hours, and then paying f ...
