Tesla Inc. the company plans to open its overcharger network to other electric vehicles this year, CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter.
The electric car manufacturer’s fast-charging network, with more than 25,000 superchargers worldwide, has given it a competitive advantage. Meanwhile, other carmakers have formed alliances or invested in network startups as they bring new entrants to electric vehicles to market.
“This year we have opened our Supercharger network for other vehicles,” Musk said on Tuesday, adding that over time the Tesla charging network will open for other electric vehicles in all countries.

The German transport minister said last month that he was trying to convince Tesla to open its Cargo network to other car manufacturers to make charging easier for drivers of electric vehicles.
In the United States, the administration of President Joe Biden reached a bilateral agreement late last month in the Senate to spend $ 1.2 trillion on infrastructure projects, including $ 7.5 billion in electric vehicle infrastructure, including charging stations.
Blink Charging Co., EVgo Inc., ChargePoint Holdings Inc. and charging companies like Volkswagen’s Electrify America are also building charging networks in the United States.
Improvements in U.S. cargo infrastructure could push more Americans to buy electric vehicles, giving General Motors and Ford Motor the fuel they need to fight Tesla.
