Self-service Superchargers from 2022?

Following Tesla’s recent announcement, the home network of Superchargers may soon open up to other brands. by 2022 But under what condition (s)?

Historically, the Superchargers network from the Californian manufacturer Tesla began its deployment in 2012. At that time, charging solutions for long journeys with electric cars were not widespread. Almost 10 years later, Tesla has more than 25 000 Superchargeurs, distributed in more than 2,700 stations around the world.

Until then, only brand owners could access the network. But things are about to change. Tesla is working on opening its proprietary network to other manufacturers by September 2022.

Several questions arise

It is surprising that Tesla opens its network so easily. As early as 2014, Elon Musk said he was open to the principle, but only if the other manufacturers put their hands in their pockets.

By opening its proprietary network, the brand is also breaking one of the main selling points of its models. We can then ask the question if the manufacturer will not choose to make public only a small part of its Superchargers.

In reality, this announcement to make the Superchargers public – made by Elon Musk in person – will only concern Norway. Indeed, some of these Superchargers have been subsidized by the country’s public finances. Specifically, they will be the ones that will become open to everyone by next year.

For what rates?

Now, speculating on a widespread Tesla opening, then comes another question: what price list will be applied for other brands?

Superchargers are now billed 0,36 €/kWh to Tesla owners. By opening its network, the manufacturer could offer a higher price to other brands and thus have an additional source of income.

By doing so, it would allow the brand to finance more easily the expansion of its network, at a time when the number of electric cars explodes more and more.
