Tesla Opens its Supercharger Network to Other EV’s


Tesla’s Supercharger Network is one of the best EV charging networks found in North America, with more than 25,000 Supercharging stations worldwide. While various other carmakers have formed alliances or invested in startups to develop charging networks for their EVs, they are still struggling to build a huge network like this.

Seeing this, Elon Musk had promised to open the Tesla Supercharger network to other EVs for a long time. However, it has now finally come to fruition with Tesla revealing a Pilot project in the Netherlands that will launch about ten Supercharger charging stations, allowing other non-Tesla owners to use Tesla’s Supercharger Network to charge their EVs.

According to Tesla’s Netherlands website, if a Non-Tesla driver wants to charge their EV using Tesla’s, they would need to:

  1. Download the Tesla app (version 4.2.3 or higher) for iOS or Android and create a Tesla Account.
  2. Select ‘Charge Your Non-Tesla’ and find your Supercharger site.
  3. Add your payment method, plug in your car, select a stall and tap ‘Start Charging.’
  4. Select ‘Stop Charging’ to complete your session.

One other thing to be noted is that Non-Tesla drivers will incur additional costs, allowing Tesla to support charging a broad range of vehicles and make adjustments to their sites to accommodate these new vehicles. However, Tesla can lower the price per kWh with a paid membership.

We might soon see this happening in the USA, too. But Non-Tesla drivers will need to use an adapter to charge their EVs, unlike in the Netherlands, where EVs have to use the standardized CSS (Combined Charging System) for charging.
