Tesla has opened its first Supercharger station at a UK airport, offering free power to Model S owners, though it’s not where you might expect. Edinburgh Airport, in Scotland, is where you’ll find the two-bay charging facility, rather than any of the bigger locations like Heathrow Airport.
The station, like most Superchargers, is available 24/7 and – if you’ve got the right charging kit on your Model S – it’s entirely free to use.
Don’t get any ideas about plugging in your Tesla and then jetting off for a couple of weeks, though. There’s an hour limit to how long you can be connected for, though given a 20 minute hook-up to a Supercharger is enough for half of a battery recharge, most owners shouldn’t have a problem.
Tesla’s plans for the Supercharger network are considerable, though so far the US has been the most catered for in terms of the free fueling points.
