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:
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.
