Musk promises to open up Tesla’s charging network to other EVs

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.”
