Tesla initiates its chargers to different electric vehicles
- November 3, 2021
Tesla is opening up its charging networks to other electric vehicles for the first time.
The organization has more than 25,000 “supercharger” locations, making it the biggest charging network in the world.
Its pilot scheme will begin with 10 locations in the Netherlands as part of the organization’s push to take electric vehicles standard.
The vehicle creator, owned by Elon Musk, trusts ultimately to grow the scheme “worldwide”.
“It’s always been our ambition to open the supercharger network to non-Tesla EVs (electric vehicles), and by doing so, encourage more drivers to go electric,” a Tesla spokesman said.
“This move directly supports our mission to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.”
The chargers will work with any electric vehicle that includes a combined charging system (CCS) port.
Such systems are used by global makers, including BMW, Mercedes-Benz creator Daimler, Ford and the Volkswagen group.
Non-Tesla drivers who need to use one of the organization’s supercharger stations should download its application and make an account.
Clients can then look for “non-Tesla” locations. In any case, there will likewise be extra costs for those with non-Tesla drivers.
The organization sold 241,391 Tesla vehicles in the third quarter of 2021 which assisted it with accomplishing a market worth of $1 trillion (£733bn) this week.
It became the fifth such firm to arrive at the achievement.
Just Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and Google-owner Alphabet had previously arrived at that milestone valuation.
