San Francisco. Elon Musk-run Tesla has officially started allowing other electric vehicles to refuel at some Supercharger stations in the US. The company has allowed EVs from other companies to use its chargers in Europe as well and is now doing the same in the US.
“It has always been our ambition to open up the Supercharger network to non-Tesla EVs. Therefore, encourage as many drivers as possible to use electric,” Tesla said in a blogpost.
Last month, the Biden administration unveiled a new initiative to install 5 million electric vehicle chargers on US roads by 2030 as part of its $7.5 billion plan, and as part of it, Tesla plans to expand its 7,500 charging stations by the end of 2024. Has committed to opening up to non-Tesla vehicles.
In addition, non-Tesla owners can pay per charge or subscribe for $12.99 monthly to get the discounted rate.
According to the company, Tesla opened the first Supercharger in 2012 and today, it has more than 40,000 Superchargers around the world.
In addition to the US, the non-Tesla Supercharger pilot is currently available for supercharging stations in 16 more countries.
Non-Tesla owners will need to download the Tesla app on their devices to charge their EVs at charging stations by following the complete procedure on the app.(IANS)
