Tesla will soon expand the number of Superchargers open to non-Tesla electric vehicle (EV) owners in Canada. The company has installed Magic Docks at one of the new Supercharger stations in Calgary, just three months after the first two pilot locations were launched in Ontario.
Tesla’s Magic Dock is a built-in CCS (Combined Charging System) adapter that allows non-Tesla EV owners to plug in and use a Supercharger. The Magic Dock first appeared in the US earlier this year, with stations in California and New York being retrofitted with the device. Since then the number of Magic Dock Superchargers in the US has increased substantially, now available at more than a dozen states across the country.
Not long after Tesla also installed Magic Docks in Canada at the North Bay and Deep River stations in Ontario as part of a pilot program, with the company saying it would open 750 stations to other EVs by the end of 2025.
The pilot program appears to have been successful as Tesla retrofitted the brand new Supercharger in Calgary (Macleod Trail – 1102 Macleod Trail SE) with Magic Docks. The installation was captured by Drive Tesla reader Angie Dean on Tuesday, who shared these pictures with us. According to Dean, the Tesla technicians said the adapters will be tested and hopefully activated on Wednesday.
Once it is live non-Tesla EV owners will have to download the Tesla app and set up an account with payment information. Once that is complete all you will need to do is select the charging stall you want to use on the mobile app and activate the charging session. Since it is not live yet we don’t know how much non-Tesla owners will be billed, but it will be at a premium compared to the $0.59/kWh Tesla owners pay. That amount can be reduced however by purchasing a Supercharging Membership for $16.99 per month.
Keep checking back as we will update this story once the Magic Docks have been activated.
