Model S from London to the French Alps


New Member
Dec 4, 2015
Has anyone had experience of driving a Model S from London down through France to the Alps (3 Valleys ski resorts)? I've driven it often in an ICE car and know the route reasonably well but am thinking of doing it this winter in a Tesla (P90D). It looks like the superchargers are well spaced from Calais onward down the A26, A31, A6 and A43 through Reims, Dijon and Chambery and I've got snow chains, but if anyone has done the trip I'd welcome advice on charging strategies, driving a Tesla in the Alps in winter and anything else I should be aware of. Thanks.
