Tesla, Deutsche Bahn team up on electric car charging stations

Jan 21 (Reuters) – Electric carmaker Tesla Motors and rail operator Deutsche Bahn opened four new charging stations along key autobahn routes on Tuesday in an effort to make electric cars viable for long-distance commuting in Germany.

Tesla’s efforts to build out a network of so-called “supercharger” stations, aims to broaden the appeal of electric cars which have failed to gain widespread acceptance in Germany because of concerns about range and a lack of charging reutes that allow for a fast battery top-up.

Rival carmakers such as BMW, which recently launched the i3 electric vehicle, and Daimler which offers an electric version of its Smart car, are marketing these vehicles as “city cars” suitable mainly for short distances.

Tesla says its Model S has a range of 500 kilometres, but a lack of a charging infrastructure has limited its appeal.
