The most renowned electric vehicle and clean energy company, Tesla, is opening new charging units, the Superchargers for non-Tesla electric cars

Tesla, America's renowned electric vehicle and clean energy company, is opening new charging units, the Superchargers for non-Tesla electric cars, for the first time. The electric car maker is also launching a new pilot program in the Netherlands to promote and bring electric vehicles into the mainstream. Tesla has stated that the new program will be tested at 10 various locations in the Netherlands.

Tesla also added that non-Tesla Dutch electric vehicle drivers could access the Superchargers or the charging stations by the Tesla app. Tesla drivers can, as usual, use these stations, and the company will monitor each station for jams or congestion. Also, Tesla will be using the Combined Charging System (CCS) standard in Europe, which allows various ranges of electric cars to charge in its station without requiring an adapter.

Tesla will be operating over 25,000 Superchargers worldwide. The Superchargers are open for cars with a CCS system favored by BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, and the Volkswagen group. Charging prices for the non-Tesla vehicles will have extra costs included to support site adjustments. This move by Tesla will support its mission to accelerate the world's transition to greener energy.
