Q-Park is now one of Tesla’s Destination Charging Partners. The Tesla Wall Connector is an amenity for Q-Park Customers, allowing Tesla owners to charge their vehicles. These charging points are visible in the cars navigation system including Q-Park Oxford Street, Harley Street and Tower Bridge.
Electric vehicles are continuing to grow at a rapid rate with car manufactures such as Tesla Motors producing revolutionary, eco-friendly vehicles. As an alternative medium to petrol and diesel, Tesla Model S offers 270 miles of range on a single charge so the High Power Wall Connector can easily top off the Tesla in just a few hours.
John Denton Head of Sales and Marketing at Q-Park commented “We are delighted to be a Tesla Charging Partner chosen by the company to house the new destination charging points in Central London. We feel it’s important for Q-Park to continue to evolve by supporting this partnership. It’s great to work with such a recognised brand as Tesla Motors to deliver this service to our customers.”
Q-Park and other Tesla Destination Charging locations are hosted on Tesla’s interactive webpage and are GPS located on Model S’ navigation through Tesla’s free over-the-air software update sent wirelessly to the car. Tesla owners are able to use the Model S 17” touch screen to easily plan trips and locate the property.
Tesla Motors stated “We are very glad Q-Park will be part of our EU launch of the Destination Charging program. We’ll be going live with approximately 150 sites from April 25th; owners will wake up to see 150 new charging locations marked on their navigation system."
