Wow! The Volkers B & P should be very happy about this. Not as happy as if they announced 3-phase charging, but still, it's better than a kick in the head.
"Germany's already extensive high-power charging network"... is this statement true today?
I am, indeed!
BTW from the 29 superchargers on display in Germany, only 6 are "in the middle of nowhere". There's simply no stretch of 200 empty miles to place a supercharger within. Just a little crowded country, I guess.
Edit: the SC located SE of Frankfurt would be FRA airport, thus not really a void place.
To meet Volker.B, I'd use the SC north of Nürnberg. We would meet near Leipzig and charge over night for the travel home - that is if both of us can afford a model S with at lease 230 mi range!
Yes, that sentence was in a statement bragging about the 10ish Tesla HPCs across the country.
so is this a map of HPC's that are supposed to exist today or the proposed Supercharge network? The english implies the former IMO.
Sure would be nice if Tesla posted similar maps for the U.S. East and West coasts!
I wonder, where is the HPC north-west of Nürnberg? Must be around Bamberg? I cannot find it on the official list of Tesla Germany.
I'm counting 22 in Germany plus one in Eindhoven. The sentence does sound like it refers to existing chargers. The word "already" would suggest that there will be more Superchargers than that. EDIT: Or maybe "just" additional spots.
EDIT 2: Well, 19 of them in Germany.
How many kW do the existing HPCs support?
HPC are no SUPERCHARGERS !!!!!!!
Wouldn't it be nice to connect this network to the britich HPC network!
No, however it sounds like the Model S will be able to use the HPCs as well.
(Although I personally, given my driving experience in Germany, would likely (want to) use only SuperChargers, except for overnight stays. The same would probably apply to those who I know in Germany who might be interested, but maybe I should find out to make sure.)
99% sure this is existing HPCs.
We've done our bit! There is one waiting very near the Channel Tunnel. Just need one more in Belgium (Antwerp is best)
just saw there is a hpc in radison blu in britain!
there is also a radison blu in the city-center of antwerp
The best located hotel there is the Ramada Plaza...
It is possible to reach ours from Eindhoven but you need to take the ferry from Oostende.
Model S only charge with 40A, little more than the half of the HPC or a second onBoard charger is needed to make full use of the HPC amperage (70A max.)
About 16KW for an HPC
They are configurable based on available circuit capability. Ideally 70A, but sometimes less (like 40A or even 30A). So generally in the 6 to 16kW range.
Anyone know how many of the existing German HPCs are 70A?
How about HPCs in GB/UK?
(edit: Llyod and I were answering the same question at the same time!)
All the HPCs in the UK are 70A with the exception of the one at Mariott Heathrow, which for reasons of restrictions on the distribution board is limited to 60A.
