The Biden-Harris Administration released a fact sheet suggesting the non-Tesla Supercharger Pilot program would be available in the United States later this year.
The White House fact sheet briefly mentioned Tesla’s contributions to expanding EV charging stations in the United States. It acknowledged Tesla’s investments in Giga New York, which produces Supercharger stalls and Solar Roofs.
“Tesla is expanding production capacity of power electronics components that convert alternating current to direct current, charging cabinets, posts, and cables. Later this year, Tesla will begin production of new Supercharger equipment that will enable non-Tesla EV drivers in North America to use Tesla Superchargers,” wrote the Biden-Harris Administration.
The pilot program would open the Supercharger Network with over 35,000 Superchargers worldwide to non-Tesla vehicles in the United States. As of this writing, the non-Tesla Supercharger Pilot is available in most of Europe, including those listed below.
- The Netherlands
- United Kingdom
The Supercharger Pilot program is only available to non-Tesla drivers who live in the countries listed above. Tesla drivers can still access the Supercharger stations that are part of the program and have access to the lowest charging prices.
On the other hand, the rates for non-Tesla drivers vary by site but can decrease with the company’s charging membership. Prices for the Supercharger Pilot program are listed in the Tesla app.
Tesla also charges idle fees to vehicles, ensuring that Supercharger stalls are always immediately available once customers finish charging. Charging fees vary by country. In the United States, Tesla charges $.50 per minute when the Supercharger station is 50% full and $1.00 per minute if the station is 100% occupied.
