Globus, a German retail chain of hypermarkets, DIY stores and electronics stores, has announced a partnership with Tesla to bring more Superchargers to their vast network of stores.
All 51 Globus stores in Germany will be equipped with Supercharger stations over the next three years. One of their stores in Gensingen already has a 22-stall Supercharger station, seen in the photo above. (h/t: @tesla_adri)
“In addition to the charging park at our store in Gensingen with 22 Tesla superchargers, all of our 51 Globus stores can be equipped with superchargers within the next three years,” reports Nils Behrens, coordination manager for filling and washing at Globus SB-Warenhaus.
According to a press release, all stations will have a minimum of 12 stalls, with the option to expand further.
With 51 stores in their network, that works out to at least 612 new Superchargers coming to Germany in the next three years.
The new Superchargers will come just in time with the expected increase in the number of Tesla cars on Germany roads over the next few years with the opening of Giga Berlin.
Tesla is hoping to begin production early next year, before ramping up to volume production in 2023. The factory is expected to produce up to 700,00 cars per year.
