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.

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.
