Tesla wins the license to operate a supercharging network in Turkey

Tesla began expanding into Turkey late last year.

Tesla has obtained a license to operate a supercharging network for electric vehicles in Turkey from the country's Energy Market Regulatory Authority (EMRA).

Tesla has become one of the 119 companies that have won a license in Turkey and now has permission to operate a nationwide electric vehicle charging network that will support electric vehicle drivers.

  • EMRA said via Daily Sabah newspaper: “With the charging stations that will be installed in several locations, including parking lots, shopping malls, and gas stations by licensed operators, electric vehicle owners will be able to receive charging services and will be able to travel at a reasonable cost in the face of rising fuel prices.”

  • Tesla began expanding into Turkey late last year after plans to launch its cars inside the country in early 2022 were revealed.

  • Tesla attempted to enter the market in 2018, but the decision was abandoned for political reasons.

  • Numerous job postings indicated that Tesla had begun to consider serious market expansion, and some Supercharger stations were installed last year, but none have been officially activated or operational.

  • Some Tesla Superchargers locations, including Ankara, Hindik, Istanbul, Balikesir, and Suma, were listed, and the automaker has predicted opening dates in the second quarter and third quarter of 2022.

  • However, these locations are not active on the current Tesla Supercharger Network map.

  • Now that you have a license to operate charging stations, it is likely that they will become active soon.

  • Tesla updated several projected opening dates to the first quarter of 2023 late last year.

  • Electric vehicle adoption exploded in Turkey last year, with 14,896 new electric vehicles registered in the country as of December 2022.

  • While only 7,694 were registered in the same month of the previous year.
