GM Gains Access to Tesla Superchargers
General Motors said Thursday it has reached an agreement with Tesla to allow GM electric vehicles to charge at 12,000 Tesla Superchargers starting next Spring.
GM also will build Tesla’s preferred North American Charging Standard connectors into its EVs starting in 2025, the automaker said. GM will weave Tesla’s Supercharger network into its own vehicle and mobile apps. Ford also will stop building EVs with traditional Combined Charging System ports starting in 2025, instead using the NACS port used by Tesla.
“In order to drive EV adoption, we need to have a robust charging infrastructure. And so I’m really excited to announce our collaboration with you and with Tesla,” GM CEO Mary Barra said Thursday afternoon in a Twitter Spaces conversation with Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
