We charged a BMW at the Tesla Supercharger!

Tesla is finally rolling out access to its Supercharger network for non-Tesla vehicles. Any EV with a CCS charge port will be able to charge at a Supercharging station next to Model 3s, Ys, Xs, Ss, and eventually the Cybertruck (maybe).

Before you jump into your Polestar 2, Chevy Bolt, Hyundai Ioniq 5, or other EV and head on down to the nearest Supercharger, there are a few things you need to know.

It’s only at very select stations (very select) and the layout of the stations is for Teslas. The short cable that wasn’t an issue for a Model 3 might make charging another EV a pain. Also, good luck finding a station near you. Even in the EV-heavy Bay Area we had to travel two hours to find a station that supported non-Teslas.

That said, we hopped into the BMW ix M60 and took a road trip to see if Tesla’s ability to build a robust charging network for its own vehicle translates into something that it can do for the rest of the industry.
