Tesla opens the world's longest supercharger station through a partnership with a French supermarket company.
The electric vehicle manufacturer built around 23,277 Superchargers at 2,564 stations by the end of 2020, but currently it will be 31,498 Superchargers at 3,476 stations by the end of 2021. This number represents a growth of about 35 percent from the previous year.
Most Supercharger stations share similar characteristics, but some of the most interesting and newly opened in France this week are arguably the longest Tesla Superchargers in the world.
Tesla made a partnership with E.Leclerc, a supermarket in France, to open a Supercharger station for electric vehicles at their location.
Last month, it launched the 16-stall V3 Supercharger at the E.Leclerc Montauban location and the 8-stall V3 Supercharger at the E.Leclerc Saint-Gaudens location.
This week, Tesla opened a new Supercharger V3 at E.Leclerc Beaune and it's a Supercharger station with 28 stalls, which is a huge station.
“However, it's configured in a way that makes it the world's longest supercharger,” according to Quentin Vannier, Tesla's regional manager for charging infrastructure in France.
This Supercharger Station can also be used for all electric vehicle owners of other brands.
