You may have heard that Tesla has been outfitting some of its Superchargers in the US with CCS port adapters to allow other makes of EVs to charge. That’s all in a bid to qualify for up to US$7.5 billion in subsidies for building a charging infrastructure, which stipulates it must be open to all EVs.
But the Elon Musk-owned company hasn’t given up on trying to push its own charging technology on to other carmakers. And it’s a compelling argument; with more than 40,000 Superchargers around the world, Tesla vastly outnumbers all other chargers. But will other automakers make the switch?
