Tesla Will Give Other EV Owners Access To Their Supercharger Network Next Year

Talks with and pressures from various Governments will see Tesla share its valuable charging network


  • Tesla’s network is the largest in the world.

  • The timeline indicates that this will happen in September of 2022.

  • It’s unclear if this is a global or regional decision.


Rumours and reports of Tesla opening up their Supercharger Network to other automakers and brands have existed for a while. This is the first time however that a confirmation and a timeline has been put into place for such an arrangement.

Only recently, we shared that the German Government was in fact talking with Tesla about sharing its network. In countries like Sweden and Norway, Tesla’s worked out deals where, in exchange for incentives in building charging stations, they will be made accessible for other brands.

German Government Urging Tesla To Unlock Its Supercharger Network To All EVs

A key question, according to electrek, is the extent of this new plan on behalf of Tesla. In Europe, Tesla vehicles are equipped with the CCS connector, which is standard in the region and all EVs. In North America, Tesla vehicles use a proprietary plug and charging stations. In order for the Supercharger Network to work with other brands, adapters would need to be used.

As a reminder, Tesla has over 25,000 active Superchargers at more than 2,700 charging stations around the world.
