First Third-Party V4 Supercharger station opens in Europe

Tesla’s V4 Superchargers are now being adopted by third-party charging networks, with the first company opening up their own charging station in the UK with V4 charging posts this week.

Last year Tesla and bp has signed a deal for $100 million worth of Supercharger equipment, marking a pivotal shift in the company’s business model as it was the first time Tesla has sold their charging technology to a third-party charging network.

Just a month later the British gas station and convenience store operator EG Group announced it was doing the same. While the financial terms of that deal were not disclosed, they have beaten bp to the punch, opening the world’s first charging station with V4 Superchargers branded without Tesla’s logo, as art of their evpoint charging network.

As you can see from the photos, the chargers are open to all EV brands. They also support Plug and Charge functionality, making for a seamless charging experience on evpoint.

This deal with Tesla will help EG Group meet its plan to deploy over 20,000 chargers across approximately 3,600 sites in the UK and continental Europe. Currently the evpoint network consists of more than 600 EV chargers at nearly 200 different locations across the region.
