Tesla expects sales surge in Europe as first six Supercharger stations open

Article by Anita Panait, on September 3, 2013

Tesla expects to boost its sales in Europe this summer as it seeks to become a truly global carmaker with plans to build a network of high-speed Supercharger stations. Tesla thinks that this network will make it stand out among other automakers, including those who produce electric vehicles. Tesla is presently doing business mainly in New England and California but it seeks to establish a nationwide network within the next few years.

Tesla recently opened six stations in Norway – a good start for its European Supercharger network. Some may question why thinly populated Norway was selected to begin this expansion as it’s not a European Union member.

But then, you’d be surprised that Norway is the country with the largest proportion of electric vehicles on a per-capita basis. That’s because Norway has laws that are favorable to electric vehicles.

In fact, Tesla positioned the Superchargers on several of its most-traveled routes. Tesla said that the Superchargers’ location places them near (less than 200 miles) 90% from Norway’s population.

Tesla launched the new stations by sending of three Model S units from different locations, all set to meet up in the capital of Oslo. To get more details about the kick-off event, go to Tesla’s Facebook page. You can also follow its new European Twitter account @Tesla_Europe with the hashtag #EuroSupercharger.
