Tesla to Build European Charging Network For E-Cars – Motor Show – WSJ.com

Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) wants to conquer core European markets by building a comprehensive network of charging stations for electric cars by the end of 2014, the U.S. electric car manufacturer said Tuesday at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The so-called “Supercharge” system is supposed to help sales of its new luxury sedan Tesla Model S, with 20 minutes of charging enough to last for 300 kilometers, Tesla sales manager Jerome Guillen said. A full charge will last between 370 and 480 kilometers, depending on the model.

The company plans to supply the electricity at no charge to customers.

In Norway, where the company has its strongest presence, 90% of the population live within 300 kilometers of a charging station, the company said. The Model S cars have recently started shipping to Norway, with Germany, Spain and Belgium to follow soon, Tesla added.
