Tesla installs its chargers across German Autobahn, Austrian Alps

Electric car maker Tesla Motors (s TSLA) has installed eight more of its fast charging stations across Europe, four in German cities along the highway, two in the Netherlands, one in Switzerland and one in Austria.

While Europe will probably end up being a smaller market than the U.S. in terms of sheer volume, there are already a decent amount of Tesla customers in some European cities with high electric car incentives and environmental-leaning populations. Tesla expected to deliver 800 Model cars to Norwegian customers by the end of last year.
