Tesla provides more Superchargers to other EV Brands in China.

Tesla launched a test program in China back in April, allowing other EV companies to use its chargers. The first batch included ten Supercharger stations and 120 destination charging stations. The pilot appears to have gone well, and the actual rollout is already begun.

Today, the business announced that non-Tesla vehicles can now use more than 350 Supercharger stations and more than 260 destination charging stations across mainland China.

Non-Tesla models from 30 different brands can now use all of these in the country. The number of specific models from other brands that are permitted has recently increased slightly.

Popular models include the Nio ES6 and EC6, XPeng P7, Zeekr 001, BYD’s Han and Tang, the Hiphi X and Z, Aion LX, and WM Motor EX5.

Tesla has over 1,800 Supercharger stations in China, with over 11,000 Superchargers, so we’re still a long way from having all of them available to other manufacturers, but progress is being made every week. In addition, there are over 700 Tesla destination charging stations in China, with over 2,000 charging outlets.

While this is obviously welcome news for Chinese EV drivers, it is worth noting that non-Tesla vehicles are charged at higher rates at Tesla chargers. Tesla claims this is due to an additional price that supports the company’s investment in supporting new vehicle models, as well as the expense of upgrading the stations to meet those vehicles, when charging a non-Tesla vehicle. The pricing changes depending on the charging station, and the prices may be found in the Tesla app.
