    I was wondering: "if Tesla would start building a superchargernetwork in Europe, where would be the best locations to instal them?"
    Because both we as a costumer know our routes best and we all want Tesla to succeed in changing the automotive branch. I tought, "maybe we can suggest Tesla locations all over Europe where preferable superchargers could be installed".

    So i've started a map http://www.zeemaps.com/pub?group=477480&x=6.732997&y=51.995190&z=13&add=1&geosearch=1 on wich you can enter your preffered location.

    Of course highwayjunctions and shopping malls are very interesting for people who want charge their car and spend some time usefull, and long distanceroutes (e.g. Autoroute du soleil to the French coastline) may appear if everone would pinpoint his/her preferences.

    This is a good idea. I hope that there will be soon a supercharger network in Europe. From my point of view of an Italian I would like that at least 5 superchargers were placed in Italy in the following cities.

    1) Milan
    2) Bologna
    3) Florence
    4) Rome
    5) Naples

    I didn't manage to place the superchargers on the above mentioned map.

    I don't know if it makes sense to build superchargers in Italian cities. People living in those cities with a Model S can charge at home. Supercharging is for road trips and then it makes more sense to position superchargers along the most important highways. A charging stop can then be combined with visiting a rest stop (Autogrill?). This would be useful for business people, for Italians on a day trip, but also for tourists going south. I travel to Pescara every summer and would be able to get to my destination with superchargers on the German highways, in Switzerland (where there will be a lot of Model S owners) and in Italy (for instance on the A4 to the Adriatic).

    I said cities to mean an area but I agree with you that superchargers should be placed on most important highways. I meant to say that in an initial phase at least 5 superchargers would be needed in the area of those Italian cities.

    It looks like i'm the only one that can ad markers. I'm trying to figure out how to open the map so everyone can place one (or more) markers.

    A9 between Nuremberg and Munich would be nice, a bit after Ingolstadt, maybe in the near of the intersection to the A93.

    Romans were ancient Rome people. But Latin was not only the language of ancient Rome people. Other people in ancient time spoke Latin. If by Romans you mean also people of Rome territory ok you are right ;-)

    I added one to "Bad Oeynhausen" in Germany. It covers the trip from Amsterdam to Berlin. One Supercharger there would also help people from Belgium traveling to Berlin via the A2 coming from Essen.

    Does somebody know when Tesla will start installing superchargers in Europe? (Apart from Norway where superchargers will be placed this year)

    Maybe they are already preparing the paperwork, etc, etc.

    It's probably a lot of work to get this all worked out.

    I have added several locations in the North of Spain, where I used to pass during my trips.

    Somebody added 4 locations with respect to the 15 locations that I proposed in Italy. Some of them are very close to other locations and so I think they are unessential.

    I would love SCers in Germany and Europe.

    Germany covered by following locations:

    Stuttgart
    Munich
    Nuremburg
    Frankfurt
    Leipzig
    Berlin
    Hamburg
    Hannover
    Dusseldorf

    That should cover 100% of long distance driving needs in Germany - with 9 SCs.

    Put them near an Autobahn exit, so easily reachable for all.

    Suggestions?

    Can you add them to the map?

    I chose Bad Oeynhausen since that is a city you have to go through when traveling to Berlin. But Hannover would work just fine as well in that case. Somewhere along the A2 would be fine.

    I travel to Germany a lot, about 8 times per year.
