GM to join Tesla's Supercharger network after Ford

【PhoneAuto News】Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors, confirmed that the company’s future electric vehicles will adopt the Tesla North American charging standard. The change will start from the spring of 2024, and General Motors owners will be able to use Tesla’s vast and widely covered network of 12,000 Superchargers.

General Motors and Tesla reach cooperation

Barra announced the news with Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Twitter on Thursday afternoon. It is understood that General Motors owners will be able to charge at Tesla Supercharger stations through a dedicated adapter, which will be provided to existing General Motors electric vehicle owners earlier next year. Barra said: “What’s more exciting is that our existing electric vehicle customers will be able to use 12,000 Tesla Superchargers through an adapter earlier next spring.” This is definitely good news for General Motors electric vehicle owners, as it means that their charging options will be greatly increased.

According to Barra, General Motors’ future electric vehicles will adopt the Tesla standard access. She also said: “We plan to adopt a unified North American charging standard, and we are working hard to adapt. Our first vehicle of this model will be launched in 2025.” In addition, General Motors revealed that its future electric vehicles will also integrate Tesla Superchargers into its vehicles’ mobile applications. This will further enhance the charging experience of vehicle owners at Tesla Supercharger stations.

Recently, Ford also announced that it will soon enable its electric vehicle models to support Tesla Supercharging, which means that approximately 300,000 American electric vehicle owners will be able to significantly improve their charging experience. On the other hand, this may also mean that Tesla will become an important participant in setting the charging standards for American electric vehicles, reflecting that the current mainstream charging protocol standards in the American market may change again in the future.
