Throughout the last year, numerous carmakers have announced their association with Tesla to use the latter’s trademark Superchargers.
We have compiled a list of all the carmakers and their EVs which are eligible to use Tesla Superchargers. Various car marques have collaborated with the largest EV maker on the planet to use the latter’s charging network. Note that most EVs use a CCS (Combined Charging Standard) plug, while the Tesla cars use a NACS (North American Charging Standard) plug. However, using an adapter (Magic Dock), even non-Tesla EVs can charge at Tesla Supercharging stations.

Which EVs Use Tesla Superchargers?
The list of carmakers who have signed up with Tesla to use its charging infrastructure saw a massive increase within the last couple of years in general and last year in particular.

How Many Tesla Superchargers Will Be Shared?
It is critical to understand that not all Tesla Superchargers can be used by non-Tesla cars. At the moment, only 12,000 Supercharging ports out of 17,000 are available for non-Tesla cars. These are the V3 Superchargers which have been installed after 2019. The ones prior to that don’t support charging via the Magic Dock adapter. Most car companies have plans to commence this partnership by mid-2024. Most 2025 models of EVs from the aforementioned auto companies will come with NACS support from the factory.

The ultimate aim of this collaboration is to extend accessibility to all EV owners and to develop an ecosystem with minimal range anxiety. Just by having an adapter, millions of electric car owners will have peace of mind, knowing that they can stop at just about any charging station to juice up their automobiles. Apart from that, many carmakers, private charging infrastructure players and governments across the globe are investing heavily in the development of the ecosystem around EVs. All these factors will combine immensely to enable mass adoption of EVs at a faster rate.
