Tesla’s Supercharger network has grown significantly in the past few years, but a number of countries only have a handful changing stations.
That will change in the future as Tesla CEO Elon Musk has revealed “Supercharger coverage will extend to 100% of Europe next year.” There’s no word on how many stations will be added, but Musk noted they will extend from “Ireland to Kiev, from Norway to Turkey.” That should be reassuring news to European customers as Tesla’s current Supercharger network starts thinning out after you leave countries such as Austria, Germany, Slovenia and the Czech Republic.
While there are a few stations scattered across Eastern Europe, there aren’t any in Ukraine but two are scheduled to open in the near future. The situation is largely identical in Turkey, but Tesla appears to have plans for at least nine superchargers that effectively form a ring around Eskişehir.
Yes. Supercharger coverage will extend to 100% of Europe next year. From Ireland to Kiev, from Norway to Turkey. https://t.co/7FQZgLCTVJ

Eastern Europe won’t be the only area to benefit as more than a dozen Superchargers are slated to be opened in the United Kingdom according to the company’s map. The map also suggests Tesla has plans for additional chargers in countries such as France, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Denmark and the Netherlands. About the only countries missing out out on the action are Belarus and Moldova.
Besides announcing plans to improve the Supercharger network in Europe, Musk revealed their intention to build a network in Africa in 2020. That effort will likely take some time to complete as Tesla’s map doesn’t reveal any Superchargers on the continent.
What about Africa
