Tesla Has Added GM To The List Of Companies That Can Use Their Superchargers

In an exciting development, General Motors (GM) and Tesla recently announced a forthcoming arrangement that will allow GM vehicles to utilize Tesla’s extensive Supercharger network. This groundbreaking partnership is slated to commence in 2024, enabling GM drivers to access a remarkable 12,000 Superchargers by the following year.

Along with this partnership, the company also plans to adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) by 2025 by which they are looking to double the charging infrastructure that is currently available to their drivers, CEO Mary Barra said.

This partnership aligns with a growing trend of cooperation between visionary entrepreneur Elon Musk and established automakers. By embracing a unified charging standard and a common connector, this alliance has the potential to revolutionize the EV market and overcome the prevailing obstacle of limited charging options.

Tesla’s Supercharger network, which currently comprises an impressive 20,700 plugs in North America, has garnered a reputation for reliability, setting it apart from other charging stations struggling to maintain consistent service.

“Consumers won’t have to worry about what plug, what socket, which charging station,” Tesla CEO Elon Musk said. “This is a huge advancement for electric vehicles in North America.”

Moreover, Tesla has already forged a similar alliance with Ford and has taken a significant step by opening portions of its European charging network to vehicles from other manufacturers. By joining forces, GM and Tesla are not only improving the charging experience for their respective customers but also paving the way for increased EV adoption nationwide. As demand for sustainable transportation continues to soar, the presence of a robust and accessible charging network becomes increasingly vital.
