Explained: how all Australian electric cars can now access some Tesla Chargers

Tesla now allows other brands of electric cars to use some of its Australian supercharger locations by creating an account and adding a payment method on the Tesla app for iPhone and Android.

This unexpected move seems to be a trial as all the locations are in rural and regional areas:

  • Bathurst
  • Narooma
  • Hollydene
  • Dubbo
  • Tamworth

These older model Superchargers are much slower than an Evie or Chargefox 350kW site but any new charging options in Australia are welcome.

Non Tesla’s pay a higher rate (79c/kW) at these 5 open Tesla chargers, which I expected to happen once Tesla started opening its chargers up to all brands in Australia.

To reduce the per kW charge Tesla offers owners of other brand EV’s a $9.99/month membership option.

Time will tell whether many non Tesla owners take up this membership offer or just use open access Tesla chargers as a emergency option if cheaper Evie/Chargefox locations nearby are broken.
