Electric Car Stock News: Tesla (TSLA) Opens 50th Supercharger Site in Europe
AMSTERDAM - August 12, 2014 (Investorideas.com renewable energy stocks newswire) Model S drivers can drive from Stockholm to Cote d'Azur for free
Tesla marked the continued rapid expansion of its fast-charging network last week by opening its 50th Supercharging location in Europe. The unveiling of the new site in Narbonne, France, is another step towards an extensive Supercharger network in Tesla's major European markets, including the UK, Scandinavia, the DACH region, Benelux, and France.
Tesla's Supercharger network in Europe has expanded quickly since the first installation in Norway in August 2013. Supercharger routes now enable free electric travel between major cities and the most popular highways from Scandinavia to the French Riviera. Routes covered include Oslo-Stockholm-Copenhagen, Hamburg to Geneva and Berlin to Frankfurt. In France, the "Route du Soleil" runs from Paris to the Cote d'Azur and new locations in the north are coming soon to allow travel to Amsterdam. In the UK, new Supercharger sites open in London and Birmingham this week.
Tesla recently energised its 168th Supercharger worldwide, making it both the largest and the fastest-growing fast-charging network in the world. In July, the European Supercharger network alone delivered more than 600 MWh of energy to Model S vehicles. That energy accounts for a collective 2.2 million miles driven, the equivalent distance of driving to the moon and back four and a half times. In this same month, Superchargers in Europe have saved more than 380,000 litres of petrol and offset up to 1,100 tons of carbon dioxide.
