Tesla Charging Tech For Everybody

⚡️🔌 Tesla is opening its charging network to non-Tesla vehicles.

📝💻 The company released a blog sharing the design for its charging connector so other companies may adopt the tech and utilize existing Tesla infrastructure.

🚗🛻 Legacy OEMs are not expected to jump on board soon (or maybe ever). Some startups have adopted Tesla's language of calling the tech the North American Charging Standard.

🇺🇸🔋 Network providers and the US government have yet to adopt any such standard. Adoption of the tech by automakers would give their customers access to more chargers and Tesla's supercharger network.
