Tesla To Open Up Aussie Charging Stations To Other EVs

X

Elon Musk has announced he will be opening up the global network of Tesla charging stations for use with other electronic vehicles, .

This includes the Australian Tesla Supercharger stations, and will be a shot in the arm for the growing EV market, in which Tesla had a head start.

If other EV companies get on board, and this becomes the standard, it will allow smaller manufacturers an entry point into the market, without having to build similar infrastructure.

Musk has been planning to make Tesla stations the standard for quite some time. In a 2018 earnings call, he said:

“This is not intended to be a walled garden, and we’re happy to support other automakers and let them use our Supercharger stations.

“They would just need to pay the share of the cost proportionate to their vehicle usage. And they would need to be able to accept our charge rate or at least — and our connector, at least have an adaptor to our connector.

“So this is something we’re very open to, but so far none of the other car makers have wanted to do this. But it’s like not because of opposition from us. This is not a walled garden.”
