In this post, we shall take a look at the details of the prominent carmakers who use Tesla Superchargers. Over the past couple of years, many car manufacturers have revealed their partnerships with Tesla to utilize the company’s trademark Superchargers. Keep in mind that most electric vehicles (EVs) use a CCS (Combined Charging Standard) plug, whereas Tesla cars use a NACS (North American Charging Standard) plug. However, with the help of an adapter called the Magic Dock, even EVs that aren’t made by Tesla can charge at Tesla Supercharging stations. Here is the list of car companies that agree to use Tesla Superchargers.

Carmakers Who Use Tesla Superchargers
The number of carmakers partnering with Tesla to use its charging stations has grown significantly over the past few years, especially last year.

Numbers of Shared Superchargers
It’s important to know that not all Tesla Superchargers are open to non-Tesla cars. Currently, only 12,000 out of 17,000 Supercharging ports can be used by non-Tesla vehicles. These are the V3 Superchargers installed after 2019. The ones installed before that can’t charge with the Magic Dock adapter. Most car companies aim to start this partnership by mid-2024. The 2025 models of EVs from these car companies will have NACS support built in from the factory.

The main goal of this partnership is to make sure all electric vehicle owners have easy access to charging stations and to create a system where people worry less about running out of power. With just an adapter, millions of electric car owners can feel confident knowing they can charge up at almost any charging station. Besides that, car manufacturers, private companies that build charging stations, and governments worldwide are putting a lot of money into making the EV system better. All these things together will help more people switch to electric cars faster.
