Tesla’s Supercharger ramp has reached a new milestone. In a recent announcement, Tesla revealed that the Supercharger Network in Europe now boasts over 6,000 stalls in 600 locations.
Tesla celebrated its new milestone by sharing a number of photos showcasing its Superchargers in multiple spots across the region. The images featured some Superchargers that were built in undoubtedly picturesque locations.

While having 6,000 Superchargers in Europe is no small feat, Tesla still has some distance to go before the rapid charging network saturates the region. Superchargers, after all, still comprise but a small part of Europe’s overall EV charging infrastructure.
Tesla Superchargers are lauded not only for their speed. They are also well-received due to their ease of use. Unlike some third-party rapid charging systems, Superchargers do not require a separate app or card to initiate a charging session. Tesla owners simply plug in their vehicles and monitor the charging session through the mobile app.
Tesla currently operates over 20,000 Superchargers worldwide, allowing the company’s electric vehicles to perform long-distance trips seamlessly. Apart from Europe, Tesla is also aggressively expanding the system in China, where hundreds of new sites are seemingly being opened every couple of months.
