Tesla launches Supercharger pilot program to charge other electric vehicles – .

Like, Tesla is expanding access to its network of Supercharger chargers. As of today, the company is opening 10 locations in the Netherlands for non-Tesla electric vehicles as. As long as you live in the country and have the Tesla app installed on your phone (version 4.2.3 or later), you can use them to charge your car. The stations are located in Sassenheim, Apeldoorn Oost, Meerkerk, Hengelo, Tilburg, Duiven, Breukelen, Naarden, Eemnes and Zwolle.
The only thing to note about the pilot is that it is only open to electric vehicle drivers who live in the Netherlands. However, if you drive a Tesla vehicle and visit the country, you can charge your car normally at stations. In addition, how the program expands beyond this initial pilot project will depend on congestion at the stations. “Future sites will only be open to non-Tesla vehicles if there is capacity available,” the company said.
The company also put a non-Tesla home charger on sale on Monday. Both the driver and the charger are a sign that Tesla is looking for revenue outside of its ecosystem. That said, it may be some time before the automaker opens its charging stations in the United States to electric vehicles from other companies, as these use a proprietary connector.
