    Thursday evening, I have the idea to do a roadtrip with my model S from North east of France, to Amsterdam in Netherland, with my familly.
    Now , it is done !! I will tell you my journey without any problem, for 980 kilometers

    Start on friday morning with 397 kms of rated range.

    ... To reach Brussels where I went at TESLA service Center because I wanted to check my câble Type 2 type 2 that seems no to work very well in France... Résult, it was working there very good while we went to breakfirst at a Restaurant QUICK near Tesla Center that could charge my car in triphase at 26A, 83 km/h

    so, no problem to reach Oosterhout in NL, where there are 8 sockets to charge
    On the motorway, I saw at least 3 Models S, very often black color

    Arrived at Oosterhout, GPS drived me to supercharger, located next to a MacDonald and a Domino Pizza
    There were already 3 Model S charging icon_smile.gif

    One hour later, I can drive with full battery with +188 kms added

    here we arrived to the hotel near Amsterdam.

    Amazing, in Netherlands, roads are flat, so range is better at same speed

    At the hotel, we could finally charge all night at 13A, the friday evening, we went to a restaurant near beach at 40 kms from hotel. and the next day, after leaving hotel, we went to Amsterdam centrum to visite, a moment by car before parking somewhere at a cost of 4 euros per hour. There are a lot of bikes in this city !!!

    Our hotel was in fact a sort of studio, with parking so very cool :)

    Roads are very small and I was not very confortable to pass bridges, mainly by night with rain and no lights in the streets icon_confused.gif

    Nice story.

    We have a dutch member making an unscheduled trip from France to NL at the moment. Sounds like this route is going to get popular :)

    Bien fait, et merci d'avoir partager! Je trouve tous ces voyages vraiment impressionnant, et, en plus, ça montre qu'on peut être spontané avec un véhicule électrique.

    Yes, it will be a popular route !

    Here is a map I started to make with positions of superchargers in Europe, actually, it could help of what is now possible without stress, with use of Tesla infrastructure
