Electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla will this summer start installing its charging infrastructure in Spain, based on its superchargers. The name for Tesla’s charging stations comes from their high-power capacity to deliver more than 90kW, enabling your vehicle batteries to be charged to 80% in just 15 minutes.
During the initial phase, scheduled for August, a total of three superchargers will be installed. The location of the first has already been decided: the Melià Golf Hotel (Sant Feliu de Guíxols). The remaining two will be installed in hotel car parks just off the AP7 motorway in the Tarragona area and on the A2 motorway in Zaragoza.
Tesla’s objective for phase two is Spain’s Levante eastern region, as well as southern and central areas of the country. The intention is to install a further 15 superchargers during the course of the year.
In order to complete its growth strategy for the Iberian Peninsula, Tesla has signed an agreement with the state-owned hotel chain Paradores so that owners of the company’s Model S can use the charging stations during their stay. Another two stations will also be installed in Portugal.
The installation of the company’s charging stations in Spain is a further step forward in the implementation of sustainable mobility and electric vehicles.
