Tesla plans to open its network of superchargers to other electric vehicles later this year, CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter.
With over 25,000 superchargers worldwide, the fast charging network of electric vehicle manufacturers is becoming more competitive. Meanwhile, other automakers are partnering or investing in network startups as they rush to bring new electric vehicle entrants to market.
“We will open the supercharger network to other EVs later this year.” Musk said on TuesdayIn addition, Tesla’s charging network will be open to other electric vehicles in all countries.
The German Transport Minister said last month that he was trying to convince Tesla to open the charging network to other automakers to make it easier for electric vehicle drivers to charge.
In the United States, at the end of last month, President Joe Biden’s administration accepted a bipartisan Senate agreement and spent $ 1.2 trillion on infrastructure projects, including $ 7.5 billion for electric vehicle infrastructure, including charging stations.
Charging companies such as Blink Charging Co., EVgo Inc., ChargePoint Holdings Inc. and Volkswagen’s Electrify America are also building charging networks nationwide.
Improvements in charging infrastructure across the United States have led more Americans to buy electric vehicles, giving General Motors and Ford Motor Company the fuel they need in the fight against Tesla.
