Tesla’s superchargers becoming industry standard as more automakers adopting them

An increasing number of automakers are partnering with Tesla to utilize its electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure across the United States. This trend is moving Tesla’s superchargers closer to becoming the industry standard for charging EVs.

In Texas, a plan has been approved that mandates EV charging companies to incorporate Tesla’s charging plug in their networks if they want to be eligible for federal funds related to electric vehicle infrastructure.

Tesla’s North American Charging Standard is gaining prominence due to its wide availability and reliability compared to competing charging networks. This comes in contrast to the Combined Charging System (CCS), which is supported by other automakers such as Volkswagen and Hyundai. Tesla’s robust network and standardized charging system offer convenience and compatibility to a growing number of electric vehicle users.

This move signifies a broader industry shift towards collaboration and standardization in electric vehicle charging infrastructure, making it more convenient and accessible for EV owners across different car brands.

Since May of this year, eight automakers, including Ford, General Motors, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and Nissan; and eight EV charger manufacturers have announced the adoption of Tesla superchargers.

Meanwhile, four U.S. states have either mandated automakers to adopt Tesla standard or plan to if they want to benefit from federal funds. Texas and Kentucky have already approved plans on that end, while Washington state and Florida are planning to.
