Tesla Announces Major Expansion of Supercharger Network in Iceland with N1 Partnership

Tesla is set to significantly expand its Supercharger network in Iceland by partnering with a gas station chain, N1. The expansion will add 20 new Supercharger stations, taking the total number of locations to 29 with over 200 stalls in the coming years.

Iceland is an ideal location for the widespread adoption of electric vehicles due to its already almost 100% renewable electricity generation, making EVs extremely eco-friendly. The island’s remote location and high petrol prices also make electric vehicles an attractive alternative.

Despite its sparse population of around 350,000 people, there is a significant concentration of residents near Reykjavík, with most commuters able to cover their daily commute using most electric vehicles.

Tesla has already made a substantial investment in Iceland by building a Supercharger network across the entire country, opening it up to all electric vehicles in 2022. The investment paid off as Tesla became the best-selling car brand in Iceland in 2023, with a 20% market share, and the Model Y breaking a 35-year record for the best-selling car in the country.

To support the growing fleet of electric vehicles, Tesla announced a partnership with N1, a gas station operator, to deploy new Superchargers across the country. Iceland has also introduced incentives for car rental companies to update their fleets with electric vehicles, making it easier for tourists to drive electric.

Tesla vehicles are a popular choice for rental fleets, and the new Supercharger deal with N1 will help accelerate the transition to electric vehicles for car rental companies and tourists alike.
