As of 1pm today (18th May) 15 of the 112 UK Supercharger Sites will open to third party cars to access.
This means that non-Tesla EV owners will use the Tesla app to initiate a charge but will pay more per kWh than Tesla owners unless they pay an additional monthly £10.99 fee to gain access to the lower charge prices.
Tesla has reassured that the expansion of the supercharger network is continuing to accelerate in line with the promise of the tripling of the supercharger network within the next ~1.5 years as referenced earlier this year.
The Tesla find us map will show these 15 sites soon.
Tesla Statement said: “Access to an extensive, convenient and reliable fast-charging network is critical for large-scale EV adoption. That’s why, since opening our first Superchargers in 2012, we have been committed to rapid expansion of the network. Today, we have more than 30,000 Superchargers worldwide.
Tesla drivers can continue to use these stations as they always have, and we will be closely monitoring each site for congestion and listening to customers about their experiences.
More customers using the Supercharger network enables faster expansion. Our goal is to learn and iterate quickly, while continuing to aggressively expand the network, so we can eventually welcome both Tesla and non-Tesla drivers at every Supercharger worldwide.”
