Tesla begins supercharger rollout at UK motorway services


Three new Superchargers have been installed at service stations along UK motorways, with more on the way.

Two Tesla Supercharger bays are now live at South Mimms, with a further six bays located at Oxford Services on the M40 and another six at Hopwood Park. The units recharge 50% of the Model S’s 310-mile range in around 20 minutes.

These locations already house Ecotricity multi-standard rapid charge points that can 80% charge cars such as the Nissan LEAF, Renault Zoe and BMW i3 in under 30 minutes.

Welcome Break has confirmed that more Supercharger’s are to be added to their service stations across the country and will announce the next four locations shortly.

Rod Mckie, CEO of Welcome Break said: “Welcome Break is proud to be at the forefront of the UK motorway electric vehicle network, promoting nationwide the message that electric vehicles are no longer just for inner city driving, but can now be used to cover the length and breadth of the country, as well as connecting with Tesla’s large presence across Europe. The new stations at Welcome Break sites will open vast parts of UK’s motorway travel routes.”
