As will owners of any electric car made by GM.
General Motors (GM) electric vehicle (EV) owners will be able to use Tesla's 12,000 supercharger network throughout North America starting in 2024. This is part of GM's recently forged partnership with Tesla as part of its goal of expanding access to fast EV chargers as well as moving toward a single North American charging standard.
Of note, Tesla announced in February that it will open its supercharger network to other car brands.
Initially, GM EV owners will be needing the use of an adapter since every automaker in the US uses a Combined Charging System (CCS) charging connector except Tesla. GM EVs - such as the GMC Hummer EV and Lyriq, among others - will then be built with a North American Charging Standard (NACS) by 2025 to have direct access to Tesla superchargers without the need for an adapter.
GM CEO Mary Barra shared that the company expects to save around $400 million with its EV charging partnership with Elon Musk's Tesla. In an interview with CNBC, Barra said that collaborating with Tesla enables GM to expand its EV charging infrastructure "faster and more effectively."
The said agreement will help boost GM's ongoing expansion of EV charging access through its Ultium Charge 360 plan in which the automaker has invested $750 million and partnered with Pilot Company and EVgo. The said partnership aims to increase the number of DC fast charging stations in North America from nearly 13,000 to up to 18,000 hubs.
GM also announced that it will integrate the Tesla supercharger network into its vehicle and mobile apps so that its customers can quickly locate the available charging stations. After all, the automaker's goal is to accelerate mass EV adoption.
"Our vision of the all-electric future means producing millions of world-class EVs across categories and price points while creating an ecosystem that will accelerate mass EV adoption," said GM CEO Mary Barra.
Aside from GM, Ford has also come to terms with Tesla in allowing its clients to have access to superchargers in the US and Canada in 2024. The Ford Mustang Mach-E, F-150 Lightning, and E-Transit models will be equipped with a Tesla supercharger-compatible adapter to allow seamless charging with Tesla's NACS connector.
