Tesla to launch supercharger stations for electric cars in Belgium

Date:

In a press release, Tesla, an American car manufacturer company, announced that it has decided to open a number of its supercharger stations to all-electric vehicles in Belgium beginning Wednesday.

The Belgian pilot includes one hundred forty-one individual superchargers and nine fast charging stations, considering it makes the largest fast charging network in the country.

The stations that will service all-electric cars are now in Antwerp, Arlon, Edegem, Heusden-Zolder, Lokeren, Namur, Remouchamps, Verviers and Wavre.

Tesla will also open some of its charges to all-electric vehicles- not just those in the Tesla family, in the United Kingdom, Austria, Spain and Sweden.

The expansion of the pilot to these five countries makes the supercharger network of just over 200 stations, and 2,900 charging points the largest publicly accessible fast charging network in Europe, Tesla says.

“That’s why we’ve been committed to rapidly expanding the network since the opening of our first superchargers in 2012.

Today we have more than 30,000 Superchargers worldwide. Tesla drivers can continue to use these stations as they always have, and we will be watching each site closely for congestion and listening to customers and their experiences.”

The use of the supercharging stations isn’t free: owners of electric vehicles in Belgium can purchase a monthly membership at €12.99 to access lower kWh rates, while non-members have access at a higher kWh price of €0.70 on average. Exact rates vary by location.

“Our goal is to learn and innovate quickly as we continue to aggressively expand the network to eventually welcome both Tesla and non-Tesla drivers to every supercharger worldwide,” Tesla said in its press release.
