Tesla Supercharger, free recharge in some European countries

Tesla Supercharger

The Tesla car company continues to work on new charging technologies but there is no shortage of initiatives dedicated to users who own a vehicle of the brand. The new initiative, already launched in the United States during the Christmas period, and conceived by the House of Elon Musk concerns free recharges in Tesla Superchargers during some "holidays".

We are talking about a project that could certainly please a lot to the users given that the US car manufacturer has decided to launch the initiative also in some European countries.

According to what was known, the initiative should be limited to a limited number of 79 Superchargers present in Northern Europe, where Tesla drivers will be able to recharge the car for free during the winter holidays in February and March and at times established.

The countries in which the initiative will be launched will be France, Germany, Norway and Sweden. In detail, the affected stations will be 27 in France with free recharges that can be made on weekends (Friday-Sunday) from 11 to 27 February before 10:00 and after 18:00. 31; in addition, there will be 31 German stations where you can take advantage of free recharges on weekends from 18 February to 6 March before 8:00 and after 19:00; 8 Supercharger stations in Norway in which there will be free recharges between February 18 and March 6, from Friday to Sunday before 12:00 and after 19:00, and finally 13 stations in Sweden, with free recharges from Friday to Sunday from February 18th to March 6th before 11am and after 6pm.

Avoid the rush of this winter holiday season and charge for free during off-peak hours at Superchargers along the selected travel routes in Europe.

We remind you that in recent days Tesla has updated its map of recharging points to include new Supercharger stations which will also be inaugurated in Italy during 2022.

Tesla gets all its Supercharger cables stolen at brand new station

Tesla was the victim of a theft that resulted in having to shut down a brand new Supercharger station, as all the cables on the eight stalls were cut off.

The automaker is currently working to triple the size of its Supercharger network over the next two years.

It is currently growing at a record pace.

Tesla went from 23,277 Superchargers at 2,564 stations at the end of 2020 to 31,498 Superchargers at 3,476 stations at the end of 2021.

We are seeing Tesla open several new stations every day.

One of those new stations is a new eight-stall V3 Supercharger station in Oakhurst, California.

However, when members of the Tesla Motors Club forum wanted to go check out the new station, they found that all stalls were missing their charging cables.

A closer examination shows that they were completely cut off (picture via Randy Spencer on TMC):

Tesla Supercharger stations have been subject to vandalism in the past.

A Supercharger station in Utah had to be shut down a few years ago after people intentionally damaged it.

This new instance in California could be vandalism, but the goal was most likely to steal the cable for the copper inside.

They manage to cut all of them clean off undetected, which could point toward criminals who knew what they were doing.

This can be a problem with charging stations, as they are often unattended, and in this case, it was a brand new station that Tesla owners didn’t even know about just yet.

It looks like charging station operators are unfortunately going to have to take vandalism and theft into account for their operations to keep the stations online as much as possible.

If this continues to be an issue, investing in some surveillance equipment is also not going to be a luxury.
