Tesla is Allowing Non-Tesla Vehicles to Use 10 Superchargers in the Netherlands

Tesla will be allowing every EV driver to use its supercharger stations

  • This pilot program could be extended to other countries in the future

  • Any EV driver that has the Tesla app installed can use 10 supercharger stations around the country

  • Charging is more expensive for non-Tesla drivers

Tesla had long promised to open its supercharging network to every other electric vehicle and it has now begun to do so in the Netherlands.

A pilot program is currently running in 10 cities throughout the Netherlands that allows drivers of any electric vehicle to use a Tesla supercharging station to charge their vehicle, provided they have the Tesla app on their phone.

The participating stations are located in the cities of Sassenheim, Apeldoorn Oost, Meerkerk, Hengelo, Tilburg, Duiven, Breukelen, Naarden, Eemnes, and Zwolle.

Tesla drivers are still able to use the superchargers like they are used to and the company will monitor the flow to the stations and the user’s experiences.

The automaker had promised many times to open its supercharging network to other vehicles and it will do so around the world if the results of this program are conclusive.

The motivation behind this is said to be the desire to entice more people to buy electric vehicles in general. This is also cited as the reason why the company expanded its network, which now contains about 25,000 stations, so quickly.

Something to note however, it will be more expensive to charge other vehicles at a supercharger than a Tesla and the rates will vary from station to station. Drivers will be able to verify pricing of the station they want to use through the Tesla app.
