Tesla Superchargers open to other electric cars
Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweets that deal has been done
The Tesla Supercharger network, which was recently voted the number one charging network in the UK, is opening to owners of other cars. In a recent tweet Elon Musk, Tesla CEO, suggested these chargers are already open to other electric vehicle models. The Tesla network features around 20,000 different charging points around the globe with many of them able to charge up to 250 kW.
Tesla’s charging network was been only open to Tesla owners but the tweet from Musk suggests that some deals have been done to open up the network. Full details of these deals haven’t been released but this would be good news for non-Tesla electric car drivers. The added convenience of more places to charge up will also potentially help those thinking of converting to an electric car.
Tesla’s Supercharger network is one of the most extensive and continues to grow. The brand has been proactive at building charging infrastructure to support its drivers and this is continuing to expand at a rapid rate. Some of the new locations include Tesla’s V3 Superchargers that can charge with up to 250 kW. The brand also announced recently a fourth-generation Supercharger that can charge up to 350 kW.
