Non-Tesla Supercharging Pilot Program Approaching 20 Nations


It has been fairly a while since we final time heard in regards to the Non-Tesla Supercharger Pilot program enlargement to new markets.

We lately visited Tesla‘s web site and it turned out that presently, non-Tesla electrical autos can use a few of Tesla Superchargers in practically 20 nations.

The most recent addition is Turkey, which joined because the nineteenth nation. Nevertheless, there are solely 4 Supercharging websites out there for non-Tesla autos in Turkey. For reference, in 15 European nations, Tesla already opened tons of of web sites.

In Europe, Australia, and Turkey, issues are comparatively straightforward as a result of Tesla makes use of the identical charging connector – CCS2 – as the remainder of the EV business. Equally in China, the place there’s the GB/T normal. However in North America, the opening of Superchargers to non-Tesla EVs requires an adapter from NACS to CCS1.

The progress within the US is relatively sluggish, as simply over ten stations have been geared up with the Magic Dock built-in CCS1 adapters, since March 2023. We guess that there’s a proof for that – likeĀ the transition from the CCS1 charging connector to NACS, introduced by main EV producers.

Tesla may nonetheless proceed to put in Magic Docks on new charging stalls in North America (Canada is anticipated to hitch in 2023), which might open the door for public funds within the Nationwide Electrical Automobile Infrastructure Method Program (NEVI), however we guess that there’s little to no incentive for the corporate to retrofit older chargers with the Magic Dock. In just a few years, new non-Tesla EVs can be NACS-compatible anyway.

One more reason why issues are usually not transferring quicker within the US may be an intention to speed up the installations, as soon as the brand new V4 Superchargers will arrive (the primary ones are already put in in Europe). The V4 is supplied with an extended cable, which is necessary to deal with non-Tesla EVs (charging inlets positioned in varied locations).
