Tesla announced that it will build its largest supercharger in Europe in the capital of Norway, Oslo. According to Futurism, Tesla has selected Oslo as the site for the largest Supercharger station in Europe. The 42-stall station will help Tesla achieve its goal of 10,000 Superchargers worldwide by the end of 2017.
Imagine a supercharger that is capable of receiving 42 Tesla vehicles at a time. It will be huge and occupy a large space.
The choice of Oslo is not accidental. Norway, which started the program for the promotion of electric cars in the 1990s, today is one of the world's leaders in the popularity of this type of transport. No wonder one of the most popular Tesla owners group on Facebook is called Tesla Owners Club Norway, which currently has nearly 14,000 members. Most of the members seem to be Tesla Model S owners.
Even in 2013 Tesla was working actively to cover Norwegians with Superchargers. By then the company had covered nearly the 90 percent of the country's needs.
Norwegians love to travel with their Teslas. Take for example this cross European Tesla Model X adventure from Norway to Greece.
Teslas and EVs are very popular in Scandinavia in general. This Finnish taxi driver drove Tesla Model S 250K miles without breakages. Tesla vehicles are growing in popularity in a huge market like Russia. In Russia, there is also a huge increase in demand for Tesla vehicles. According to the analytical agency "Autostat", electric car sales in Russia grew by 92%, reports Life News.
By the way, Tesla is currently building another large supercharger, actually one of the largest superchargers on the East Coast of the United States, opening soon.
