L'ortolan goes electric

L'ortolan goes electric L'Ortolan has teamed up with Tesla Motors to provide an increasingly desirable amenity; Tesla Destination Charging which replicates the convenience Tesla owners are accustomed to at home. L’Ortolan is the first Michelin star restaurant in the South East of England to offer this service. Tesla Destination Charging locations are hosted on Tesla’s interactive webpage and are GPS located on the vehicle's navigation through Tesla’s free over-the-air software update sent wirelessly to the car.

Tesla owners are able to use the 17” touch screen to easily plan trips and locate the destination. L’Ortolan has two Tesla Wall Connectors installed for patrons to use, one for Tesla only cars and one universal charger, adding up to 60 miles of range per hour.

L’Ortolan is constantly striving to find new ways to heighten the guests’ experience. By combining leading-edge technology and the forward-thinking of Tesla with our commitment to providing outstanding cuisine and exemplarily service, we now have the ability to offer guests a seamless and convenient charging experience whilst they dine with us.
