Tesla will benefit from a European program to expand its network of Superchargers in Italy and Poland.
With its Superchargers, Tesla remains at the forefront of fast charging networks in Europe. However, the American manufacturer does not intend to stop there, since it plans to further expand and modernize its network, partly thanks to European Union grants awarded under the “Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Facility” (AFIF) programwhich selected 26 projects, including that of Tesla.
In total, around 352 million euros will be distributed, of which nearly 150 million will go to Teslanotably to Tesla Italy and Tesla Poland.
Tesla’s two subsidiaries, Tesla Italy and Tesla Poland, will use these funds to deploy new charging points or update existing ones, in order to provide a charging power of 250 kW. It is very likely that these new charging points will be the highly anticipated Tesla Superchargers V4.
Tesla Italy’s project provides for the establishment of 613 Supercharger stations, totaling 6,458 charging points, spread across 16 countries, including Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Spain, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Romania, Slovakia and Sweden.
For its part, the Polish entity’s project includes 740 charging points at 250 kW, distributed in 6 countries, namely Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic.
If Tesla is the main beneficiary of this investment plan, with 44% of the funds allocated to it, the AFIF program will allow the installation of a total of 12,000 charging points. However, charging infrastructure for electric cars is not the only one to benefit.
Indeed, these subsidies also aim to electrify several ports in Europe, including that of Rotterdam, as well as airports. These funds will also be used to erect 18 hydrogen fueling stations.
This approach could help support Belgium’s hydrogen strategy, while Europe will continue to encourage its development. This is rather good news for the sector, since, as we reported to you on Auto Plus recently, Everfuel, a Danish operator, has taken the decision to close its existing hydrogen distribution stations and give up its network of 19 stations in Denmark.
