Tesla launches free fast charging network in Norway

The company already has a similar network in North America, where company founder Elon Musk has outlined plans to have most metropolitan areas covered within six months, 80% of the population within a year and 98% within two years.

Speaking to EV Fleet World last year, Tesla’s head of sales and ownership experience George Blankenship said the plan was to eventually have a similar network spanning Europe, providing free long-range travel for the life of the vehicle.

A key market for electric vehicles, Norway has been prioritised. Superchargers now offer 20-minute top-ups on routes between the capital Oslo and Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger in the west and north. It puts 90% of the country’s population and 60% of its land mass within 320km of a charger – within range of the Model S’s battery.
