Tesla has opened its 20th Supercharger station in the UK, continuing the rapid expansion of the fast-charging network to enable long-distance travel in Tesla’s all-electric vehicles.
Tesla Superchargers span routes from Exeter to Edinburgh, allowing access to Europe. The latest Supercharger station puts Tesla on course for full UK coverage by the end of 2015.
Supercharger stations are now available at Sainsbury’s supermarkets in Winchester, Exeter and Bristol. Tesla also recently opened stations at Junction 15 of the M1 near Northampton and Brent Cross shopping centre in North London.
Model S has a range of 312 miles per charge (according to its NEDC rating), which is more than enough to cover daily commutes and the majority of daily driving scenarios.
Tesla are rapidly expanding Supercharger locations and its currently the fastest electric vehicle charging network in the world. There are currently over 1600 Supercharging points installed across the globe with over 40% of them being in Europe.
Tesla Superchargers replenish half a charge in 20 minutes and are placed along well-travelled routes to enable long-distance travel.
