Tesla has officially opened its first Supercharger station in Athens as it actively enters the Greek market. The arrangement and expansion of the charging infrastructure here mark a rapid advancement and development in the country.
The first Tesla vehicles were officially delivered to Greece in December 2020. In an effort to provide its customers with the best service, Tesla launched its first Supercharger, and intends to launch several more this year. The new V2 charging station is located in the Golden Hall shopping center in Athens and has 6 stalls. Tesla's store is also in the mall, so the appearance of a Supercharger station here is not unexpected.
According to Tesla's website, the company will open three more Supercharger stations in Greece in 2021. Tesla's branded charging station in Patra is slated to open in Q2 2021. The station in Lamia will open in Q3 2021, and in Thessaloniki, Q4 2021. Thus, the network will open access to travel in Tesla cars throughout the country, as well as provide access to travelers from Europe to the Greek coast.
In addition to the store and charging station, Tesla will soon open a service center, according to a PR manager for the company in Greece. He said that the company in Greece already has a team of specialists who can carry out a number of repairs, but a service center will appear in early 2021.
The new service center will be not only the first in Greece but also the first in the Balkans, which is good news for the entire region. At the moment, the nearest service center is located in Prague, Czech Republic, or Vienna, Austria. Having a service center in the country will significantly increase the peace of mind amongst Tesla's existing owners, and will add confidence to those who are going to purchase a vehicle.
