Tesla to Open Charging Network to EVs as a Part of Federal Program

Tesla, for the first time, has made a commitment to open up its electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to non-Tesla vehicles – taking a sweet deal from the Department of Transportation as President Biden’s administration ramps up its effort to build a coast-to-coast EV charging network.

The White House on Wednesday announced that Tesla, with the support of $7.5 billion in government subsidies, will open a portion of its U.S. Supercharger and Destination Charger network to non-Tesla EVs. Elon Musk’s company, which operates the second-largest charging network in America behind ChargePoint, has agreed to make at least 7,500 chargers available for all EVs by the end of 2024 and to distribute those chargers across the United States.

Tesla will place at least 3,500 new and existing 250 kW Superchargers along highway corridors and Level 2 Destination Charging at locations like hotels and restaurants in urban and rural areas, the White House said.
