Elon Musk has claimed that its Tesla EV chargers would soon be available for use of other brands and cars, all over the world, as pioneers of its unique charging connectors. Before this, the CEO said that Tesla was the only EV company that focused on “long-range electric cars.” The company had charger stations that would have it as an equivalent to refueling.
In the past years, California was the center of most Tesla Supercharger stations
as it is the birthplace of the company and where most of its sales are. However, that would soon change as Tesla plans to build new factories
and distibute vehicles and power all over the world.

, and Model X. Other cars are still waiting, with the Cybertruck and Roadster coming soon. The “Models” of Tesla has made it a full-fledged car company, that has different types of cars from sedans to pick-up trucks, and even a race-bred electric supercar.
Its global expansion is not something that came out of nowhere, as Musk is also known to claim massive things like SpaceX’s mission to Mars
, where he aims to establish a new colony.

In the same thread, Tesla was praised by for pioneering a charging connector that is now famously used in Supercharger stations and home charging kits. Here, the EV company was said to be “criticized” by many for making their charging connectors that is special to Tesla’s fleet.

The CEO billionaire noticed this and replied that Tesla was a
We created our own connector, as there was no standard back then & Tesla was only maker of long range electric cars.
It’s one fairly slim connector for both low & high power charging.
That said, we’re making our Supercharger network open to other EVs later this year.

, focused on going further than other electric cars. Back then, people with EVs or hybrids would need to charge their cars at home and expect it to last the round trip, but Tesla’s cars and charging stations changed that for the US.
Musk also revealed that other EV brands can soon make use of Tesla’s Supercharger stations later this year.
Will Tesla Share This with Other Manufacturers?
While it is not known if Tesla is to share their charger connector design and engineering with other car manufacturers, the company would focus on having other cars use its Superchargers.
Tesla is already seeing a long line in Supercharger stations, and that expansion is coming soon. Its opening to other car manufacturers could mean superiority for Tesla, not only as a car company but also as a clean power provider.
