Tesla Extends Supercharger Access to All Other Cars and Increases Coverage of Supercharger Stations in Italy, Reaching Most of Europe
You’ve probably heard about Tesla’s Supercharger network and its recent expansion into Europe, and you may have even seen it spreading in the United States and Canada. However, suppose you own an electric vehicle from another manufacturer.
In that case, you might be wondering what this means for you – after all, Tesla isn’t selling any non-Tesla EVs in Europe, so why are there Supercharger stations popping up all over?
The Tesla Megapack's new 196 MWh battery storage system in Europe will be a major step forward for sustainable energy. Elon Musk's company has announced expanding its electric vehicle charging stations network to include Tesla vehicles and other brands.
This means that drivers from any EV brand can now make use of the vast number of charging stations Tesla has been building throughout the region.
The announcement comes on the heels of one made earlier this month when Tesla said it would cover installation costs for buyers of homes with solar panels or who want to purchase and install their stationary storage batteries.
This move is part of an effort by Musk’s company to shift the world towards renewable energy and away from fossil fuels.
He plans to build up to 200 more megawatts worth of charging stations in Europe. With the Tesla Megapack powering a new 196 MWh battery storage system in Europe, these efforts will surely bring us closer and closer to sustainable energy.
The expansion reflects Tesla's commitment to expanding the availability of its chargers and provides more options for drivers across the continent.
Drivers can charge their cars with a Tesla or electric car that uses the Combined Charging System standard. The new mega-station is located at the Village at Corte Franca near Padua, Italy.
