Tesla announces first motorway charging sites

24 June, 2015

Electric car manufacturer Tesla will be opening its first Supercharger stations at UK motorway sites.

The company has revealed seven Supercharger stations will be added at motorway services with additional UK motorway locations in the works to be announced soon.

It said that in one year, Tesla Superchargers throughout the United Kingdom have powered more than two million electric miles. Starting with the first Tesla supercharger location in Royal Victoria Docks, London, there are now 68 Superchargers at 22 Supercharger stations across the country. It adds that they have enabled drivers of its Model S vehicle to save more than 350,000 litres of petrol and 1,000 tons of CO2.

The Model S has a range of up to 310 miles. Supercharging is free for long distance travel on any properly equipped Model S and provides half a charge in as little as 20 minutes.
