Tesla has agreed to start opening their American Supercharger network to non-Tesla EVs.

They will reportedly make 7500 of their chargers available by the end of 2024.


After intense lobbying from the Biden administration, which is pushing to build a national network of 500,000 EV chargers across the country, Tesla will make 7,500 chargers available for all electric vehicles by the end of 2024.

The federal government is working “to create a national network of chargers that will work for everyone, everywhere, no matter what type of car or state they’re in,” Mitch Landrieu, White House infrastructure coordinator, told reporters in a phone call.

The Biden administration is also issuing new rules for any chargers that receive federal funds to make these stations more accessible. New chargers will have to include consistent plug types, have 97 percent reliability, and allow drivers to use a single method of identification that works across all chargers.
The changes will help speed the U.S. plan to create a network of fast chargers across the country. Since 2012, Tesla has been quietly building out a network of fast “Superchargers” that now pepper the country, standing in grocery stores in Jackson Hole, Wyo., and shopping malls in Miami.

The company now has approximately 1,700 of these “DC fast” charging stations that host over 17,700 individual charging ports. (“DC fast” chargers can charge an electric car battery up to 80 percent in 20 minutes to an hour.) The company’s network is more than double the size of the closest competitor, Electrify America; it makes up about a quarter of all fast charging stations and more than half of all individual fast charging ports available in the United States today.
