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.

Tesla’s Model S is rated in the UK with a range of 312 miles per charge (according to its NEDC rating), which is more than enough to cover daily commutes and the majority of daily driving scenarios, said the company. Tesla Superchargers replenish half a charge in 20 minutes and are conveniently placed along well-traveled routes to enable long-distance travel.

To this day, Tesla has energized more than 300 Supercharger stations, for a total of more than 1,600 Superchargers worldwide. According to Tesla, this makes 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, spread between northern Norway, Italy and Slovenia.
