Tesla wants potential EV customers to stop worrying about electric range when it comes to the Model S
Tesla Motors recently made a
coast-to-coast road trip
possible in the U.S. with its all-electric Model S sedan, and the automaker wants travelers in Europe to have the same experience.
, there are big plans for an expansion of Supercharger stations throughout Europe in 2014. These stations rapidly charge Tesla's Model S for free, where a full charge takes around 75 minutes. New stores and service centers will be making their way to select European countries as well.
Currently, Tesla has 14 Superchargers throughout Norway, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. But the automaker is looking to place more within those countries and expand to the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Denmark, and Sweden by the end of the year. It's not clear how many will be placed total.
Tesla will also open 30 new service centers and stores around Europe. Service centers will be placed in Sweden, Italy, and France for the first time, and stores will open in Birmingham and Manchester in the UK, Lyon and Bordeaux in France, Gothenburg in Sweden, and many more.
Tesla wants potential EV customers to stop worrying about electric range when it comes to getting from point A to point B, and placing more Superchargers between major cities and frequented destinations is the way to do it.
The automaker recently placed more Supercharger stations between
Los Angeles and New York City
in the U.S. as a way of relieving range anxiety for its American users.
Tesla is making its way into
as well, where CEO Elon Musk recently said that the country might match the U.S. in volume "as early as next year" regarding the Model S.

Gets me every time. I think to myself,
