Tesla wants to make charging a fun time. A down payment has now been given by the installation of a swimming pool at one of the world’s largest charging stations.
The automaker previously announced that there should be coffee and food vending machines in locations with superchargers. But a real swimming pool is of a completely different category. The construction appears to be mobile, so it can be placed in different locations each time.
According to the dashboard, four people can enter the bathroom at the same time, which is made of a sea container. Officially, you can only use it for ten minutes, but that’s long enough. If you add up the time you spend changing clothes, your Tesla batteries are nearly full again.
The free swimming pool is located on the motorway in Hilden, near Düsseldorf. You can also eat and drink something there and there are also Fastned charging stations. Since Tesla also allows other brands to ship their superchargers, in theory everyone qualifies for a refreshing splash. For now, this is a beta project that will run throughout the month.
