Tesla plans to open up its Supercharger network to all electric cars

ROCKFORD, IL (WTVO) — Tesla is working with the Biden administration to open up its Supercharger network for use by all models and makes of electric vehicles (EVs).

Currently, Tesla’s Supercharger Station uses a proprietary connector that can only be used in the automaker’s vehicles.

However, with the exception of the older Nissan Leaf, we have witnessed a new “magic dock” connector that enables a charging station compatible with the CCS Combo standard used by all North American EVs.

according to electric, by opening up the Supercharger network to all brands, Tesla will be eligible for a large sum of money from the US government. This is set aside for building a network of fast charging stations across the country.

The funding will allow Tesla to double the size of its network.

“For the first time, Tesla will open up a portion of its U.S. Supercharger and Destination Charger Network to non-Tesla EVs, with at least 7,500 chargers available for all EVs by the end of 2024,” the White House said. said in a statement. “Includes at least 3,500 new and existing 250 kW superchargers along highway corridors to expand freedom of movement for all EVs, and Level 2 in places such as urban and rural hotels and restaurants. All EV drivers can access these stations using the Tesla app or website.”

Despite the industry’s adoption of the CCS connector, Tesla is open sourcing its own connector and hopes it will become the new American standard.

The “magic dock” integrates the CCS adapter into the supercharger stall. Tesla plans to open up its Supercharger network to all electric cars
