    "Supercharger" plans for Germany (Current HPC network)

    TeslaMotors Facebook Page
    The EV revolution is here! Exhibit A: Germany's already extensive high-power charging network. With Model S hitting the road next year, Tesla's super charging strategy is ready to make gas stations a thing of the past.

    Wow! The Volkers B & P should be very happy about this. Not as happy as if they announced 3-phase charging, but still, it's better than a kick in the head.

    "Germany's already extensive high-power charging network"... is this statement true today?

    I am, indeed!
    BTW from the 29 superchargers on display in Germany, only 6 are "in the middle of nowhere". There's simply no stretch of 200 empty miles to place a supercharger within. Just a little crowded country, I guess.

    Edit: the SC located SE of Frankfurt would be FRA airport, thus not really a void place.

    To meet Volker.B, I'd use the SC north of Nürnberg. We would meet near Leipzig and charge over night for the travel home - that is if both of us can afford a model S with at lease 230 mi range!

    Yes, that sentence was in a statement bragging about the 10ish Tesla HPCs across the country.

    so is this a map of HPC's that are supposed to exist today or the proposed Supercharge network? The english implies the former IMO.

    Sure would be nice if Tesla posted similar maps for the U.S. East and West coasts!

    I wonder, where is the HPC north-west of Nürnberg? Must be around Bamberg? I cannot find it on the official list of Tesla Germany.

    I'm counting 22 in Germany plus one in Eindhoven. The sentence does sound like it refers to existing chargers. The word "already" would suggest that there will be more Superchargers than that. EDIT: Or maybe "just" additional spots.

    EDIT 2: Well, 19 of them in Germany.

    Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...

    How many kW do the existing HPCs support?
