Controversy over a Supercharger subscription for non-Tesla

Several sources point out was a subscription for non-Tesla. We have identified several clues that confirm the arrival of such a subscription for all EV owners who wish to connect to the Supercharger network. Of course, it will be important for the number of Superchargers open to non-Tesla to increase. FYI, we are at 27 Superchargers stations open to everyone.

An announcement that caused a stir on Twitter

Tesla is working on a new Supercharger membership package that it will offer to owners of non-Tesla electric vehicles as it prepares to open its Supercharger network in the United States.

The subscription price of $0.99 will probably not be the final price and was only a replacement value in the unfinished version of the Supercharger subscription in the app.
