Tesla Superchargers are arriving in Israel ahead of the start of sales, which are due to start soon, to provide car owners with the best ownership experience. New charging stations will be built in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Eilat, and Be'er Sheva.
Today Tesla has updated the map of charging stations, and added many of them in different parts of the world. One of the new markets for the company is Israel, so Tesla intends to build four new Supercharging stations there, which the company announced by publishing a list of their locations. According to the plan, the company will first build two charging stations in Tel Aviv and Haifa. Construction of Supercharging stations at Eilat and Be'er Sheva is scheduled for Q2 2021.
According to the published documents, the construction of the Supercharging station in Tel Aviv will be completed within the next few weeks. The Haifa charging station will be completed in Q1 2021. Tesla is also expanding its charging infrastructure to the south. The changing stations in the Red Sea resort town of Eilat and in Be'er Sheva will be completed in the second quarter of 2021. The company also stressed that additional Supercharging stations may be built in the future.
At the moment, Tesla has not provided details on exactly what version of Superchargers will be built in these locations. However, the route they will be located in suggests that they will be needed for long-distance travel, so it could be V3 Superchargers.
Yesterday it became known that Tesla has received a commercial import license from the Israeli Ministry of Transport. This means that the company has received the status of an official importer of cars to Israel, and can start importing its vehicles in the country in any volume. Tesla became the first foreign car manufacturing company to receive a license to directly import and sell cars in Israel. Prior to this, all car manufacturers could only import and sell their vehicles through a local dealer or in partnership with a dealer.
