Tesla opens new Birmingham store and plans more UK superchargers


Tesla has opened a new store and service centre in the UK. A five-minute drive from A45 and A38, the new location features a Model S design studio, a four-bay service area and a purpose-built delivery bay.

The Tesla Birmingham retail and service centre is Tesla’s fourth UK store. It is located at 149-159 High Street, Digbeth, B12 0JU.

By the end of 2014, customers will be able to visit Tesla stores and service centres across the country.

Tesla’s Supercharger presence in the UK is growing, with nine Supercharging sites now open.

“We are working on additional London locations with new sites to be announced shortly,” said Georg Ell, Tesla’s country director for the UK and Ireland. “Our plan for routes around the UK is also under way and we now have four locations outside of the capital.”

A Tesla Supercharger replenishes a Model S with half a charge in as little as 20 minutes. Supercharger sites are strategically placed along well-travelled routes to allow Model S owners to drive long distances with minimal stops.

Tesla has energised 237 Superchargers worldwide with 83 in Europe, making it both the largest and the fastest-growing fast-charging network in the world. For all Supercharger locations in the UK, visit Zap-Map Live using the left hand panel to filter charging points by Supercharger.
