Tesla Supercharger Network opens partially in the UK
Tesla have confirmed that a selection of Supercharger locations have been opened up to non-Tesla vehicles around the United Kingdom.
It was revealed towards the end of last year that Tesla would expand their network to non-Tesla electric cars in a bid to improve the current charging infrastructure.
Tesla have been expanding the network for some time, with the UK set to follow the likes of the Netherlands and Belgium in now having access to the chargers.
15 locations are to be opened across the UK, ranging from Manchester, London and Dundee. They will be accessible for any EVs compatible with the Supercharger Type 2 CCS connector, including the likes of the BMW i4 and Volkswagen ID.3.
It is believed that 158 charge points across the 15 different locations are included in the trial.
In a statement, Tesla explained why they are opening up their Supercharger Network, "It’s always been our ambition to open the Supercharger network to Non-Tesla EVs, and by doing so, encourage more drivers to go electric."
