TESLA OPENS BIRMINGHAM STORE AND ADDS MORE SUPERCHARGERS ACROSS THE UK

Today, Tesla opened a new store and service centre in the UK. A five-minute drive from A45 and A38, the new location features a Model S design studio, a four-bay service area and a purpose-built delivery bay.

The Tesla Birmingham retail and service centre is Tesla’s fourth UK store and is perfectly placed to serve potential customers and Model S owners in the Midlands. It is located at 149-159 High Street, Digbeth, B12 0JU. By the end of 2014, customers will be able to visit Tesla stores and service centres across the country. Tesla is currently recruiting for upcoming sales and service facilities in Manchester, Bristol, Newcastle and Edinburgh. The company will continue to hold test-drive events around the UK.

UK Supercharger Openings

Tesla’s Supercharger presence in the UK is growing, with nine Supercharging sites now open. In London, three new Supercharging sites at Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge and Westfield White City add to locations at Portman Square and Royal Victoria Docks that provide convenient charging options for Model S owners in a citywhere off street parking is rare and expensive.

“We are working on additional London locations with new sites to be announced shortly,” said Georg Ell, Tesla’s country director for the UK and Ireland. “Our plan for routes around the UK is also under way and we now have four locations outside of the capital.”

As well as Tesla’s existing site in Birmingham, the company has added Reading, Bristol and Edinburgh to the network. Within the next six months, Model S drivers will be able to drive the length of the UK relying only on Superchargers.

World’s Largest Fast-Charging Network

A Supercharger replenishes half a charge in as little as 20 minutes. Supercharger sites are strategically placed along well-travelled routes to allow Model S owners to drive long distances with minimal stops.

Tesla has energised 237 Superchargers worldwide with 83 in Europe, making it both the largest and the fastest-growing fast-charging network in the world. For all Supercharger locations, visit www.teslamotors.com/en_GB/Supercharger
