Tesla Supercharger, the charging paradise thanks to Qubes

Tesla Supercharger

A few days ago we told you about the Tesla Supercharger charger station in Germany where the company has decided to install a small swimming pool to be left free to use by those who are recharging the car, but it is not the only Supercharger station equipped with thoughtful entertainment. to make the charging phase more relaxing and pleasant: this is the case of the Endsee station, also in Germany, where the bk Group company has installed prefabricated cubic-shaped lounges - not for nothing called 'Qubes'.

Inside these cubes, first of all, there is air conditioning, a not insignificant detail these days during which we are touching crazy temperatures even for the summer period, and we also find machines for snacks and drinks, public toilets and other services .

Furthermore, the cubes are easily transportable and combinable with each other; installation is very simple, you just need water and electricity to activate all the services provided.

Focusing on food, bk Group is keen to underline that it does not collaborate with large corporations for the supply of snacks , but prefers to employ local companies that produce food and snacks in a sustainable way, for a maximum of 80 products selected for each station. For example, in the Endsee station, the first where the Qube were installed, it is possible to buy Franconian wines, local chocolates, oil and much more.

Is this Police helicopter really ICEing at a Tesla Supercharger?

There’s a police helicopter standing at the Tesla Supercharger in a picture on Twitter. It is not a case of extreme ICEing or vandalism but a campaign of a higher order.

For those new to electric vehicles, ICE-ing means the malpractice of using EV charging bays for parking your internal combustion engine (ICE for short), thus blocking access for those needing to charge.

In some countries, this has become a case for the police. In Germany, ICEing prompted a Police Department in Bavaria to a day of action against blocking charging stations when parking.

The police made their case with a humorous approach to visualise the issue using their helicopter, and the department added that they were lucky to find so many charging bays available.


That may also be due to these being Tesla Superchargers. The company only recently enabled drivers of non-Tesla cars to charge at its hubs and, of course, has not (yet) included helicopters in said opening up. (Perhaps VTOLs will be next?!)

What is more, Swabia, where the police department is located, being a region of Bavaria, is likely to have drivers opting for cars made in the state, i.e. Porsche, BMW or Mercedes.

Lastly, the police helicopter never made a landing at the Supercharger. The picture is a montage made for effect.
