Charged EV »

The 10 stations are now accessible to Dutch non-Tesla EV drivers via the Tesla app. Tesla is starting with a small number of sites so that it can “review the experience, monitor congestion and assess feedback before expanding. Future sites will only be opened to non-Tesla vehicles if there is available capacity.”

EV drivers of all persuasions have a lot of questions, and Tesla has answered most of them on its site.

Can other EVs with a CCS port use the Superchargers without an adapter? Yes. European Teslas have been produced with the standard CCS port used by other manufacturers since 2018, when the company began retrofitting European Supercharger stations with dual cables, so that they can charge Teslas equipped with either CCS or the Type 2 Mennekes connector previously used by European Teslas.

Will non-Tesla drivers will pay a higher price to charge? Yes, they will—the premium “reflects additional costs incurred to support charging a broad range of vehicles and adjustments to our sites to accommodate these vehicles.”
