The density of Superchargers on the way and the absence of speed limits on the German highways make the trip fast and easy !
The approach is to travel fast and do more frequent, but much quicker stops.
1200 km ahead of us. We left Leiden at 6:20.
A couple of hours and 200 km later, we have a first quick stop at the Tesla Supercharger in Moers, perfect for breakfast at the Van der Valk hotel. In the meantime also the Tesla gets nicely fed, 20' are enough.
We met another Tesla owner, who was going back home in England, after a trip to Bergen, in Norway, over 4000 km and no worries...
It's a bit of a dull place, there is a Mc Donald around the corner, where we make a short stop for a coffee and we set off. Also here less than half an hour is enough.
Less than two hours, and we stop for lunch at the Tesla Supercharger in Achern.
There is a very nice restaurant with plenty of entertainments for kids. They are having so much fun that the Tesla is full well before we are ready to leave !
180 km later, fourth, very fast, stop at the Tesla Supercharger at the Mövenpick Hotel in Egerkingen, in Switzerland, a cozy location in the middle of the mountains.
Going downhill we're also generating energy :-)
Fifth and last stop 220 km later, at the Tesla Supercharger in Archamps, next to Geneva.
Also here, just the time for a wee-stop and off we go for our final destination, the Alps of Savoie !
We do not really need this stop to recharge, as there is enough autonomy to get to destination, but it is just to make sure we have enough juice to climb up the mountains.
We arrived at 21:00 at the Alps chalet, so overall it took a little less than 15 hours, of which about 3 to recharge (and relax).
We are not tired at all, it has been a relaxing and pleasant trip !
A good charge overnight and.....
...we' re ready to hit the slopes !
We have been traveling across Europe with the Tesla since two years now. It is unbelievable how easy it is now, how the infrastructure has evolved.
I am truly amazed, I will never EVER go back to a endothermic car !!!
