Tesla reaches 1,000 Superchargers across UK

there are over 1000 Tesla superchargers around the uk

There are now 1,000 Tesla Superchargers spread across 100-plus locations, with Tesla opening 177 new Superchargers and 17 new locations in the UK and Ireland, including Dublin and Edinburgh.

The 1000th Supercharger is situated in the newly opened London Sidcup Supercharger site at Ruxley Manor with 15 charge points in total.

The site is accessed from the A20 and offers amenities, such as a restaurant, café, grocery store, garden centre, hand car wash and toilet facilities.

The Tesla Supercharger network is now eight years since the first Superchargers were installed in London at the Royal Victoria Docks in 2014.

The ongoing expansion of the Supercharger network will ensure that drivers are able to quickly, seamlessly and reliably charge their vehicles, says Tesla.

Further V3 Superchargers will be added at future locations, these add up to 75 miles of charge in five minutes and charge at rates of up to 1,000 miles per hour.

Launched in November 2021, its non-Tesla Supercharger pilot is also expanding to new sites and countries in support of its mission to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.

In May, 15 selected stations and 158 individual Superchargers were part of the pilot in the UK, making it the biggest fast-charging network of the country.

A Tesla spokesman said: “It’s always been our ambition to open the Supercharger network to non-Tesla EVs, and by doing so, encourage more drivers to go electric.

“Access to an extensive, convenient and reliable fast-charging network is critical for large-scale EV adoption. That’s why, since opening our first Superchargers in 2012, we have been committed to rapid expansion of the network.”
