Tesla continues with their Croatian expansion.
Palo Alto, California company Tesla Motors has rapidly expanded their ‘Supercharger’ network across Europe over the last year, and with the expansion has come more than a few installments across Croatia. Today, such supercharging stations have already been set up in Zagreb, Split, Vrgorac and Senj, with planned installments in the cities of Zadar, Karlovac and Slavonski Brod, reports HRTurizam on November 24, 2017.
Because receiving a fast charge at each destination of a Tesla driver is critical, the company has introduced ’Tesla Destination Chargers’ which enable superquick charging, therefore allowing drivers to travel without worry, setbacks, and disadvantages. The first installation of the ‘Tesla Destination Charger’ and the only such one in Slavonia will most likely be put up in Slatinski Drenovac, next to the new object of the Papuk Nature Park and the future Visitor Center, by the end of this year.
The Tesla company will carry out the project for the ‘Destination Charger’ which has been supported by the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy, concerning Papuk Nature Park. The location was visited by representatives of Tesla Motors, the Director of Papuk Nature Park Alen Jurenac, Expert Manager Goran Radonić and Mirko Mališ, Mayor of Čačinci. In addition to the already mentioned location, once the construction has finished at the Geo-Info Center in Voćin, there has been an agreement to set up another charging station there.
In the framework of the “Green Line” program initiated by the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy and the fund for Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency, intended for national parks and nature parks, three electric car charging stations were set up at Jankovec, Orahovačko Lake and Velika at the Papuk Nature Park. Meaning, along with Tesla’s new destination charging station in Slatinski Drenovac, there are charging stations for other brands of electric motor vehicles, as well.
Tesla has been building their network of 480-volt fast charging stations since 2012. As of today, there are 1,032 Supercharger stations operated around the world with 7,320 superchargers. The supercharging provides up to 120 kW of power and will fully charge the Tesla within 75 minutes.
In 2014, Tesla introduced the ‘Destination Charging Location’ network, where chargers saw installations at hotels, shopping centers, restaurants, and resorts with a vehicle charge at twice the power of a typical charging station. In April 2016, the company launched European destination charging with 150 locations and growing.
