Tesla has opened more Supercharging stations for non-Tesla electric vehicles in Norway, which is another step toward making the network available for the general public in Europe (as long as the EVs are compatible with the CCS2 DC fast charging connector standard).
The first 15 stations were opened for non-Tesla EVs in January 2022, and according to the latest media reports, the company now opened an additional 42 stations.
Bjørn Nyland says (see video below) that the 42 additional stations come on top of 16 already available, so the new total is 58 (with most likely over 500 stalls) or about 66% of the 88 in total.
This move is considered a major improvement of the non-Tesla fast-charging network in Norway, including the coverage of almost the entire route to the North Cape.
Tesla has not decided yet to open all of its stations for non-Tesla vehicles, like in the Netherlands, which is very likely associated with the physical capacity of some of the stations. Some sites, which might be overloaded at peak demand, probably will have to remain exclusive to Tesla drivers – at least until an upgrade or installation of additional stations.
