After its successful debut in America, and as their European sales continue to increase, Tesla announced the launch of their first European Supercharger network across Norway. Located along well-traveled highways throughout the country, the network allows Model S owners to travel for free and with peace of mind.
Tesla Supercharger Network has stations in Lyngdal, Aurland, Dombås, Gol, Cinderella and Lillehammer. They designed and implemented the network so that 90 percent of the Norwegian population would be within 320 km of a Supercharger station, and about 60 percent of the country’s total land mass within the same distance of a station.
With up to 120 kW DC (Direct Current) power, Tesla Superchargers recharge the batteries of the Model S 20 times faster than a conventional charger. It takes about 20 minutes for the Superchargers to provide half a charge, which will be enough to get you to the next station.
Tesla did a test with three Model S that covered 500 km across the country, charging two times along the way. Conveniently, the stations of Tesla Supercharger Network are located where customers want to stop, near amenities like roadside diners, cafes and shopping centers, road trippers can stop for a quick meal while their Model S charges for free.
