Between rising prices and factory closures, Tesla is having a particularly difficult summer, marked by a drop in deliveries. The American manufacturer does not forget its many customers, however, and is considering various possibilities to brighten up a recharging time which can sometimes be a bit long. You can obviously enjoy some video games (including Sonic!) on board your Tesla vehicle while waiting for it to be fully charged, but some Supercharger stations go further.
A swimming pool (and balloons!) Tesla?
Indeed, Tesla has probably been conducting various experiments for a few weeks now aimed at improving the comfort of users of home charging stations. Recently, in Germany, customers of a Superchargeur station were pleasantly surprised to see a small salon sprouting up, stemming from a collaboration with bk world in Endsee, Bavaria. An initiative that recalls that of Audi, with a charging stationlounge bar“ Inaugurated last December, which has a lounge accessible to all, of approximately 200 m², which also includes a patio of 40 m².

But a few days ago, another much more summery initiative was spotted near the resort of Hilden, also in Germany. Indeed, customers of the station can, and until August 28 next according to the instructions posted by Tesla, take advantage of a small above-ground swimming pool, the time to recharge their vehicles while staying cool.
To refine its initiative, Tesla has also made various balls available to customers, bearing the image of Tesla of course, to play in the swimming pool. Obviously, the bathing area is in no way supervised, and the latter remains at the risk and peril of the users. Also note that the swimming pool is only accessible from Thursday to Sunday, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
For the record, note that the Hilden station is one of the largest in Germany, since it has a total of 40 chargers (8 Superchargers up to 150 kW and 32 Superchargers up to 250 kW) . It remains to be seen whether this type of initiative will soon be extended to other stations around the world, or whether it is simply an isolated test.
