Ford and General Motors Adopting Tesla Charging Standard—What Does It Mean?


His nose is awfully bent out of shape over the mere existence of de-facto standards.

{ I am not terribly impressed with most international standards bodies. }

Customers of Rivian, which has its own small network of fast chargers, will be able to access 12,000 Tesla Superchargers with adapters in the United States and Canada as early as spring 2024, the company said. Rivian also said it would make a Tesla-style charging port standard on its vehicles, starting in 2025.

Tesla’s Superchargers account for about 60% of the total fast chargers available in the United States, according to U.S. Department of Energy.

Services and other revenue, which includes the fees for using Tesla’s Superchargers, made up just under 10% of revenue in the past quarter. The company does not break out charging revenue alone.

Manufacturers and operators of CCS chargers such as ABB E-mobility North America, a unit of Swiss industrial firm ABB (ABBN.S), Tritium DCFC (DCFC.O), EVgo (EVGO.O) and FreeWire have raced to announce the addition of NACS [North American Charging Standard, formerly Tesla proprietary] plugs to their charging stations since the Ford and GM announcements.
