Tesla owners in Russia deploy two charging stations ahead of FIFA World Cup in Moscow
The owners of Tesla electric cars in Russia have come together to deploy two electric-vehicle (EV) charging stations in the country, to facilitate the road trip to Moscow for the FIFA World Cup this month.
The team-up by Tesla owners in Russia is noteworthy because Tesla has efforts underway to expand its Supercharger network in Eastern Europe “soon,” so that drivers can conveniently make road trips to Moscow. However, despite Tesla’s efforts, there is a big gap of charging stations in Belarus and Russia on the way to Moscow.
To facilitate the trip on the Russia side, an incredible effort led by the Moscow Tesla Club has resulted in the deployment of two ‘free to use’ EV charging stations in Vyazma and Smolensk. Both the charging stations have a capability 22 kW charging.
According to an email by the Moscow Tesla Club members detailing the deployment of the two charging stations, the club carried out the deployment of the charging stations in partnership with ‘Amphora’ hotel in Vyazma and ‘Usadba’ hotel in Smolensk.
The club members further explained in their email: “While going from Moscow to Europe, the first charger is located in Vyazma (230 km / 143 miles from Moscow), and the second one in Smolensk (400 km / 248 miles). Next charge may be performed in Belarus with a wide net of chargers located there.”
