Fastned EV Chargers Now Compatible With Teslas — Tesla Adaptors Being Added To All 50 Stations

The Netherlands-based electric vehicle fast-charging station company Fastned will be adding Tesla adaptors to all 50 of its locations in the country — thereby opening the company’s charging network up to the popular brand — according to an email sent to EV Obsession and CleanTechnica this week.

As noted in the email, considering that there are currently only 7 Tesla Supercharger stations in the Netherlands, the move should open up travel in the country notably to Tesla owners — providing further options beyond the Supercharger network. Of course, the Supercharger network is essentially free for use, while Tesla owners will have to pay at Fastned electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging stations, it should be remembered.

Fastned Partnering With The Hague To Develop 5 New EV Fast Charging Stations

The adaptor installation effort is expected to take place sometime in the next month. Here’s more information via the recent email:

With these new locations Tesla drivers no longer have to make detours to fast-charge their car. At the moment there are almost 5000 Tesla cars in the Netherlands, and this number is growing rapidly. With the Tesla adaptors at all Fastned stations, Tesla drivers can now charge super fast and easy in all of the Netherlands.

The CEO of Fastned, Michiel Langezaal, commented: “Before the end of March Tesla drivers will have 50 extra fast charging stations in the Netherlands. They don’t have to make detours to fast-charge, thus saving time and energy.”

A Tesla owner, and board member of the Dutch Club for Electric Drivers (VER), by the name of Vincent Everts, commented: “This is a great initiative by Fastned, which shows impressive growth with its current 50 fast charging stations. With this CHAdeMO adaptor I can now recharge everywhere in The Netherlands up to 250 km/uur. When your battery is low you know that there will always be a station closeby.”
