Tesla Motors introduced the first elements of its European Supercharger network—a set of fast charging stations across Norway. With locations in Lyngdal, Aurland, Dombås, Gol, Cinderella and Lillehammer, Norway’s most vital and commonly used roads and highways are covered by Tesla Superchargers.
Model S customers can drive routes such as the E6 from Trondheim to Oslo, the E18 from Oslo to Kristiansand, the E39 from Kristiansand to Stavanger, and Highway7 from Oslo to Gol for free and with minimal stops. Approximately 90% of the Norwegian population lives within 320 km (199 miles) of a Supercharger station, and about 60% of the country’s total land mass is within the same distance of a station.
Superchargers provide half a pack charge in about 20 minutes, delivering up to 120 kW DC (Direct Current) power directly to the Model S battery using special cables that bypass the onboard charging equipment.
