Northernmost Tesla Supercharger Now Open – Update: Now With Pics!
Tesla Motors opened supercharger #233 October 28th 2014 in Setermoen Norway.
So, what is so special about this supercharger? It has six stalls. Check. It is open 24/7. Check. Close enough to grab a Nøgne. Check. Oh yeah, its GPS reading is 68.860, 18.349, or 68 deg 51 min latitude North. That is some serious latitude.
If you have ever been to Fairbanks Alaska, that is 64 deg 49 min. Setermoen, Norway is roughly 275 statute miles north of Fairbanks, just for a U.S. comparison.
Tesla notes the following amenities in the area:
- Veksthuset Bardu (Cafe)
- Esso (07.00-23.00 hrs)
- Coop Extra (08.00-22.00 hrs – Closed: Sunday)
- Bardu Hotell 24hr reception
- Several restaurants and cafes in the area
“Well way up north where the air gets cold
There’s a tale about Christmas
That you’ve all been told
And a real famous cat all dressed up in red
All he spends all year workin’ out on his sled”
Little Saint Nick just got an upgrade, and it’s a Tesla….
