Second Tesla Supercharger Now Operational in the Netherlands


"...Aiming To Have Essentially All Of North America Covered In Detail By The End Of Next Year."

Tesla Model S at Supercharger

Sometimes, it’s impossible to be on time with every bit of news.  Even when its InsideEVs, the website that seemingly never sleeps.

We just released info on the first Tesla Supercharging station in Netherlands on Thursday and now the second one is already online.

The second location is in Zevenaar.  Of course, it’s 120 kW of power, just like all Tesla Superchargers.

In a year’s time, Tesla should install enough Superchargers to cover (radius of 320 km from a supercharger) 90-100% of the population in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Denmark.

Per Tesla:

1) The new Supercharger in Oosterhout is located along the A27 at Autogrill:

Beneluxweg 1, 4904 SJ Oosterhout

2) The Supercharger Zevenaar stands along the A12 at AC Restaurant:

Doesburgseweg 43, 6903 PL Zevenaar

    Why 120KW ? It should be 135Kw in Europe.

      135 kW in Germany. 120 kW in Netherlands.

        Please explain what the difference is. Is it something like the Netherlands is 220/380 whereas Germany is usually more like 240/416?

        I must admit, Europeans have more standardized electrical connections (otherthan the multitude of country specific attachment plugs and color-codes).

        Britain is somewhat odd in that they have very expensive attachment fused plugs, and expensive outlet recepticle power points, they are also as far as I know the only country using Ring Circuits.
        The conversion between 25hz and 50hz was easy for Europe, as Motor speeds remained exactly the same.

        25 to 60 hz conversion was not quite so easy in North America, apparently, we at 2013 have finally gotten rid of ALMOST the last vestiges of it (It’s still used on older electrfied commuter rails, since its the most efficient ‘Standard’ frequency sans electronics). ( I included ‘standard’ because I know Swiss 16 2/3 hz trains are even more efficient, but alas, it is non-standard).

        Also Related to the Model “S”, David Noland @ GreenCar Reports states that version 5.8 software release has finally lowered the car’s vampire loss to around an acceptible equivalent 1200 miles driving per year. Prior to this the loss was the equivalent of 4800 miles / year which in my eyes was totally unacceptable.
        Glad the they finally fixed this – I Knew they had to do SOMETHING prior to the coldest days in the Netherlands..

        So that’s my sole remaining question: Has anyone tested their Model S ‘s overnight loss at -18 to -14 degrees degrees centigrade, and see how many kwh are needed to put the loss back in?

          I would ask that last question on norwegien tesla forums, most ppl their knows english and they have allmost 2000 teslas on cold roads over their 🙂

    Amazing: now I’m only 20 miles away (as the crow flies) from a Supercharger!
    The other one is 60 miles away from where I live, as a “guest”, in Germany.
    So, now I only miss…a Model S!

    Great Tesla!
