By significantly increasing the number of customers in Germany, Tesla aims to increase their satisfaction with the expansion of the charging infrastructure. In June 2021, the company reached a new milestone by opening 1,000 Supercharger stalls across the country.
Previously, residents of Germany had a rather mild sympathy for Tesla cars, however the situation changed dramatically after the company chose the country as a location to build its new factory. Since then, tens of thousands of Germans have become the proud owners of Tesla cars. Such a sharp increase in customers in Germany required the manufacturer to significantly expand the charging infrastructure, which was done. Tesla has now reached a new milestone with over 1,000 Supercharger stalls.
At the moment, 103 Supercharger stations are available for Tesla owners in Germany, the last of which was opened in June in Erlangen and contains 16 V3 stalls. Now, the number of Tesla charging points in the country exceeds 1,000. According to Tesla, Germany is in fourth place among all countries where the company locates its Superchargers. Thus, 3% of all Tesla charging stations existing today are located there.
In the last months of 2020 and in 2021, Tesla began active deployment of V3 Supercharger stalls in Germany at new charging stations and existing ones. Now, owners of the company's cars can charge them up to 80 percent in about 30 minutes. Superchargers are located on major transport routes and in cities near a variety of amenities such as restaurants, cafes, Wi-Fi hotspots, and shopping malls. This contributes to a great user experience; while charging, customers can have a snack, drink coffee, or buy something.
