On April 25th, Tesla opened its charging network to other non-Tesla new energy vehicles in mainland China for trial. The first batch of trials includes 10 Tesla supercharging stations that are open to 37 non-Tesla vehicle models.
For a long time, Tesla’s supercharger were only open to Tesla drivers. At the end of 2021, Tesla launched an “Non-Tesla Supercharger Pilot Program” in Europe. Currently, vehicle owners in more than 10 countries and regions around the world can enjoy this service.
It is worth mentioning that in March of this year, Tesla’s first V4 supercharger was officially put into use in the Netherlands. During the pilot operation phase, the charging station was only open to Tesla models. However, Tesla has announced that its V4 superchargers will be open to all electric vehicles, which may help grow their charging business.
As of now, Tesla has established over 1600 supercharging stations and more than 10,000 Superchargers in mainland China. Together with over 700 Destination Charging stations and over 2000 Destination Chargers, the charging network has covered all provincial capitals and municipalities directly under the central government.
