Elon Musk promises 100% Supercharger coverage in Europe in 2019

Good news, Tesla owners: Supercharger coverage in Europe will be 100% sometime next year, Elon Musk tweeted Wednesday. 

“From Ireland to Kiev, from Norway to Turkey,” he said, specifying (in subsequent tweets) that Greece and Romania will be included as well. 

Currently, the Supercharger network in Europe is solid in some places, such as Germany, Norway and the UK, spotty in others, such as Poland and Italy, and non-existent in several European countries, including Romania, Bulgaria and Greece. Tesla’s map of Superchargers in Europe displays numerous “coming soon” markers, but it’s nice to get a slightly more precise estimate on when the coverage will extend to all of Europe. 

Answering one Twitter user’s inquiry about Africa, Musk simply said “2020,” though he didn’t specify what kind of coverage that means, exactly. 

Musk also said the company is “dramatically increasing” Superchargers within cities, as well as “working with landlords to add home charging to apartment buildings,” which should help out Tesla owners who live in rented apartments.  

Tesla’s Supercharger network has expanded tremendously in the last couple of years. The number currently stands at 11,583 stations across the globe, though that’s still far from the company’s self imposed goal of having 18,000 chargers before the end of 2018.
