Rivian to get Tesla Supercharger access in March; GM, Volvo, Polestar this spring

Tesla announced earlier today that Ford electric vehicle (EV) owners now have access over 15,300 Superchargers in Canada and the US. That is only the beginning though, and as expected, Tesla has confirmed the next automakers to gain access will be General Motors (GM), Rivian, Volvo, and Polestar.

Ford started a domino effect last year, becoming the first automaker to agree to adopt Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) technology. Not long after, GM announced they were following in Ford’s footsteps, then Rivian, Volvo, and Polestar, did the same soon after.

So as to not overwhelm the Supercharger network, and to ensure a smooth rollout, Ford had the priviledge of being the first to gain access to the Supercharger network today. We were expecting GM to also gain access in February, but that looks like it has been delayed slightly, but likely not for long.

In their announcement this morning, Tesla said GM, Rivian, Volvo, and Polestar will get access this spring. We expect GM will announce their access in the next couple of weeks, followed by Rivian, who confirmed today they will get access in March.

Ford is providing their EV owners with one free NACS adapter, but only until June 30. While Rivian’s post above didn’t mention anything about pricing, the company has previously confirmed they will also be providing their owners with a free adapter.
