Tesla officially announces that it will install Tesla Supercharger stations in Romania. The first city to have Tesla Supercharger stations will be Timisoara. The stations will be installed in the first quarter of 2021. In the second quarter of the year, Tesla Supercharger stations will also be installed in Bucharest, Pitesti and Sibiu.
Timisoara might not be a random choice for Tesla. In 1884, Timisoara was the first European city electrically illuminated.
This news follows the employment announcements published on December 14, 2020 on the official Tesla website, announcements that had the mention “We are preparing to enter Romania”.
