Tesla Installs First Superchargers in Europe

Just the Facts:
  • Electric-car maker Tesla has installed Supercharger quick-charge stations at six locations in Norway.
  • Installation of the first Supercharger stations is part of the European rollout of the 2013 Tesla Model S.
  • The charging stations are in Lyngdal, Aurland, Dombås, Gol, Cinderella and Lillehammer.

OSLO, Norway — Electric-car maker Tesla has installed Supercharger quick-charge stations at six locations in Norway, as part of the European rollout of the Model S.

Tesla began delivering the first Model S sedans to European customers earlier this summer. Eventually, the California company expects to sell about 10,000 Model S sedans a year in Europe.

The Norwegian charging stations are located in Lyngdal, Aurland, Dombås, Gol, Cinderella and Lillehammer. Tesla CEO Elon Musk had tweeted earlier that Cinderella, Norway would be one of the sites for the company's European Supercharger network.

Tesla said 90 percent of the Norwegian population, including those living in the capital Oslo, are within 200 miles of a Supercharger station.

Tesla earlier this year announced plans to triple its Supercharger network in the U.S. The automaker is also working on grid storage via solar power at its Supercharger stations in the U.S.

Edmunds says: A Cinderella story in more than one way.
