Tesla has opened its latest Supercharager facility at Edinburgh airport as the electric car maker continues to expand its network of charging stations in the UK.
The move is part of the firm’s network expansion that will soon allow Model S owners to drive anywhere in the UK relying only on Superchargers.
The Supercharger, located in the car park near the terminal, will allow drivers to gain round-the-clock access and one hour free parking whilst charging.
Georg Ell, Tesla’s UK Country Director, said: "We’re really pleased to open our first Scottish Supercharger. The location makes travel in and around Edinburgh easy and also enables a route from Edinburgh to both Glasgow and Stirling and beyond.
"It’s an exciting time for Tesla in Scotland. There are plans for an Edinburgh store and service centre next year, so watch this space for more activity."
The latest opening means there are now eight Superchargers in the UK, making it possible for users to travel the country knowing they can recharge.
The CEO of Edinburgh Airport, Gordon Dewar, added: "It’s great that Edinburgh Airport is now home to Scotland’s first Tesla Supercharger, which will provide convenient service for Tesla owners when they arrive and depart.
"We’re committed to giving our passengers the best experience possible and today’s launch is a direct result of customer feedback. We look forward to a new partnership with Tesla and wish them luck in their Scottish ventures."
