Tesla has reached another milestone in the continued roll out of Superchargers across Europe with 6.039 Superchargers at 601 locations.
The first Supercharger was installed in Norway in 2013 as the first Model S arrived in Europe. When Model X arrived in 2016 that number had grown to 1267. Model 3 deliveries started in 2019 with a total of 3711 Superchargers across Europe. In the last two years, growth of the network has accelerated to reach today’s milestone enabling over 2.4 billion Supercharger kilometres. Since Model 3’s arrival, Tesla owners have travelled the equivalent of more than 3000 return trips to the Moon or around 22 return trips to Mars using Europe’s Supercharger network. Today, Superchargers can be found across 27 countries in Europe including our most recent expansion into Athens, Greece.
The average size of a Supercharger location when Tesla opened the network back in 2013 was seven Superchargers. In recent years, this has increased to reflect the growing size of our customer base. Today, our biggest site in Europe is Nebbenes, Norway with 44 supercharges, followed by Rygge, NO (42) and Liertoppen, NO (40) & Oberhonnefeld, DE (40).
Over time, Superchargers have become faster and more efficient, just like our cars. V2 Supercharger peak power was upgraded to 150kW and on-route battery warm up introduced for our cars making sure they arrive with the optimal temperature to charge, reducing average charging times by 25%. The arrival of V3 Supercharging in Europe welcomed charging capabilities up to 1600km per hour.
The Supercharger user experience is frequently awarded for being simple and reliable. Owners can see available Superchargers via their onboard navigation systems and the car will choose the optimal route suggesting the best charging options for minimising travel times. From northern Norway to southern Spain, from Ireland to Bulgaria, owners can travel emissions and worry free across Europe with the Supercharger network allowing seamless electric travel.
