Tesla aims for Europe-wide charging infrastructure

The US California-based electric automaker targets to develop a Pan-European charging network for its Model S luxury sedan that would allow the owner to travel across the continent.

The carmaker has a very ambitious plan, which should be completed by the year’s end, as it intends to expand its current network that includes only 23 stations. For comparison purposes, the sales outlets in Europe, from Sweden to Italy, have exceeded 36 venues, while the Palo Alto company has now also opened three new charging stations – located in Germany along the country’s high speed highways, allowing for Model S owners travel to Switzerland and Austria.

“This shows how important the European market is for Tesla,” the company said in a statement announcing the new charging stations.

Tesla, which recently has become a viable alternative in the eco segment to other luxury car brands like Mercedes or BMW, seeks to increase this year the sedan’s sales by more than half, aiming to reach deliveries of 35,000 units worldwide.

For that, the US carmaker led by billionaire entrepreneur and co-founder Elon Musk, aims to open 30 new service centers and stores across the European region, while also recently tapping into the world’s largest automotive market, China.
