Tesla Reveals Norwegian Supercharger Stations
Aug. 30, 2013—Tesla Motors unveiled its European Supercharger network, energizing stations across Norway that enable Tesla Model S owners to travel for free between cities along well-traveled highways throughout the country.
Tesla Superchargers are now available in six locations along Norway’s busiest highways, including stops in Lyngdal, Aurland, Dombås, Gol, Cinderella and Lillehammer. Approximately 90 percent of the Norwegian population lives within 320 km of a Supercharger station.
Friday morning, three Model S departed from Oslo (heading north, south and west) to demonstrate the ease of cross-country travel. Each car charged at two of the new Tesla Supercharger locations.
The Superchargers are capable of charging the Model S 20 times faster than most common charging stations, providing half a charge in 20 minutes, and are located near amenities like roadside diners, cafes and shopping centers.
