Tesla opens more of Australia’s Superchargers to non-Tesla EVs

Tesla has significantly expanded its non-Tesla Supercharger pilot program in Australia, unlocking nearly half of its sites across Australia to EVs from other manufacturers.

This pilot in Australia began in January 2023, when Tesla opened five Supercharger sites in New South Wales to non-Tesla EVs. Following its success, the program has expanded to now include 30 sites across the country, significantly extending the network’s accessibility.

The move is expected to ease the range anxiety often associated with long road trips, especially in a country as vast as Australia. However, according to The Driven, which first reported on the expansion, the new sites that have been added do not include most of the popular and heavily utilized locations.

Utilizing the Superchargers is seamless for non-Tesla drivers. By downloading the Tesla app, users can create an account, locate a nearby Supercharger site, add their payment details, select a charging stall, unlock the adapter, plug in their vehicle, and initiate the charging process. A ‘Stop Charging’ option within the app lets users conclude their session.

This same procedure will soon be available to non-Tesla EV owners in Canada. Magic Docks with built-in CCS adapters were installed last week in Deep River and North Bay, Ontario, but have not yet been turned on. These two sites will serve as pilot locations before Tesla expands Magic Dock to 750 connectors across the country by 2025.
