Tesla has expanded in Europa significantly the number of Superchargers also open to electric cars from other manufacturers. As we know, Elon Musk’s company has decided to gradually make its fast charging stations accessible to other electric ones as well. A project that started in November 2021 in the Netherlands. Subsequently, it was the turn of Norway and France.
Now, a major expansion of this project has arrived. In fact, since yesterday Tesla has also opened its Superchargers in the United Kingdom, Spain, Sweden, Belgium and Spain.
It is worth noting that not all Superchargers in these new countries have been made available to non-Tesla electric cars. As we have seen in the past, the carmaker opens its charging stations to other battery-powered cars progressively. In some cases, he even “reserves” some stations only for his cars.
In any case, this is very important news for electric users. In these countries, electric car owners will be able to count on several new extra fast charging points that will facilitate long-distance travel. To recharge from a Supercharger, remember, just use the Tesla application. The cost varies from country to country and is paid per kWh collected.
Those who will be “least happy” will be Tesla owners. It is no mystery that many of them did not appreciate this project by Elon Musk. Superchargers have always been an added value. Thanks to them, even when the public charging network was not particularly widespread, the owners of an electric of the American brand have always been able to face a long journey without major problems. The fear is that, with the arrival of the other electric, the charging experience could be compromised.
In any case, the opening of these stations to other electric will allow Tesla to obtain higher revenue which will serve for expand its station network faster for fast charging.
The ultimate goal of Elon Musk is to get to open in all countries where there is Supercharger stations to other electric cars. A process that will obviously take some time. This means that in the future, Also in Italy these charging points from the American manufacturer will be able to be used by battery-powered cars from other car manufacturers.
For our country, at the moment, there is no precise information on the timing. Therefore, all we can do is wait for news from the American car manufacturer.
