A new Supercharger station in Greece – where it is the second in Greece – was inaugurated by Tesla. It is a fast charging station in Psathopirgos, on the A8 national road, which connects Athens with Patras.
The new station has 8 superchargers, 4 on each side of the highway. Like the 6 located in Galden Hall they can recharge the Model S, Model X and Model 3 and Model Y models in minutes instead of hours. The vehicle automatically notifies through the Tesla app when it has enough energy to continue the journey. It is usually not necessary to charge more than 80%.
At a cost of 0.35 euros per kWh charging is cheaper than refueling in a traditional vehicle with an internal combustion engine. It is noted that for everyday use, Tesla vehicle owners can charge at home or in the office, in a standard outlet or in a wallbox.
The next step of Elon Musk’s company will be to inaugurate a superchargers station in Karditsa in the third quarter of the year, while in the fourth quarter it will open a fourth in Thessaloniki, as shown on the company’s interactive map.
Meanwhile the company began the Model Y deliveries this week in Greece and from today everyone will be able to see it up close, since it will be in Galden Hall.
With a starting price of 60,990 euros, the Model Y is a fully electric, medium-sized SUV.
