    Nice! From the "coming soon" signs, the station is not officially open yet? Or are those placeholders for more charging bays?

    It is open and two charging stations are fully operational. The other signs are placeholders for more charging slots!

    Was there Saturday and today, worked flawlessly, and it's at the perfect distance for those who do a return trip to Geneva from Zürich! No range anxiety whatsoever, even while driving "dynamically" at highway speed.

    No clue, received the car end of November, so had it delivered directly with the winter (Aero) wheels. I can just say that with a high percentage of highway driving (120 km/h), my average consumption is 240Wh/km (386 Wh/mi).

    Liebe Tesla Freunden! Dear Tesla friends!
    Soon I will go drive with my Tesla to Germany, Switzerland and France for holiday!
    I read at Teslarati that there is a supercharger at Egerkingen, Höhenstrasse 1, Switzerland under construction.
    I am planning my holiday starting around 15th of August.
    My question to you please: could you tell me about when this super charger will be operational?

    Egerkingen was reported under construction July 9th, and construction may have started before that. I would say it will probably be operational by August 15th - that is plenty of time to do the construction work and European installations do not seem to have the delays hooking up to the electric utility that have occurred at many U.S. superchargers.
