Tesla has opened its 20th Supercharger station in the UK, continuing the rapid expansion of its fast-charging network to enable long-distance travel in Tesla’s all-electric vehicles.

Tesla Superchargers span routes from Exeter to Edinburgh, allowing access to Europe and the company aims to have full UK coverage by the end of this year.

Today, Supercharger stations are available at Sainsbury’s supermarkets in Winchester, Exeter and Bristol. Tesla also recently opened stations at Junction 15 of the M1 near Northampton and Brent Cross shopping centre in North London.

The Tesla Model S, which the company considers the world’s first premium electric sedan, has a range of 312 miles per charge (according to its NEDC rating).

This distance is more than enough to cover daily commutes and the majority of daily driving scenarios. Tesla Superchargers replenish half a charge in as little as 20 minutes and are conveniently placed along well-travelled routes to enable long-distance travel.

Tesla has energised more than 300 Supercharger stations and more than 1,600 Superchargers worldwide, making it both the largest and the fastest-growing fast-charging network in the world. In Europe, there are 129 Supercharger stations with over 670 Superchargers, extending from northern Norway to Italy and Slovenia.
