The Tesla owner Elon Musk has tweeted that his company’s bespoke electric charging network will be opened up to other electric vehicles later this year.
The billionaire was responding to a tweet which commented about Tesla deciding to create their own charging connector, which some say is unfair to other EVs.
“How about no support for @elonmusk when he was advancing the technology,” the tweet read. “His team created a reliable way to charge the fleet? Deal with it!”
Musk responded to explain why they took that decision. “We created our own connector, as there was no standard back then & Tesla was only maker of long range electric cars,” he wrote.
“It’s one fairly slim connector for both low & high power charging,” he continued. “That said, we’re making our Supercharger network open to other EVs later this year.”
