As part of its new requirements for a Made-in-America EV charging network, the White House stated on Wednesday, February 15, that Tesla will make some of its US charging stations accessible to every electric vehicle by the end of 2024. AP broke the news first.
According to the White House, by the end of 2024, the plan would allow EVs produced by other manufacturers access to at least 7,500 chargers from Tesla’s Supercharger and Destination Charger networks.
The White House on Wednesday launched a number of new initiatives, including new standards to make EV charging networks accessible and dependable for all Americans, particularly for long-distance travel.
No matter what kind of car they drive or where they charge, the new standards will ensure that everyone can use a network for charging.
Tesla, General Motors, EVgo, Pilot, Hertz, and other companies have also committed to expanding their networks by thousands of public charging stations over the following two years with the aid of private and federal subsidies from the infrastructure law.
Tesla will build charging stations in hotels, restaurants, and other public locations, according to a statement from the White House. The Tesla app or website can be used to access these stations, according to officials, by any EV driver.
According to the White House, Tesla plans to expand its national network of Superchargers by 2030.
Following a meeting between Tesla CEO Elon Musk and staffers Mitch Landrieu and John Podesta from the White House last month, the new criteria were announced.
In spite of the fact that no one was found in the driver’s seat, the report claims that autopilot is not to blame for the 2021 Tesla crash.
These programmes will help the US reach the bold objectives set forth by the Biden administration to address the climate catastrophe, such as installing 500,000 electric vehicle chargers across the country’s roads and having at least 50% of new cars sold by EVs by 2030.
Additionally, they will support a business plan to expand the domestic EV and EV charging market.
Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests $10 billion in environmentally friendly transportation and $7.5 billion in EV charging, in addition to investing almost $7 billion on EV battery components, key minerals, and materials.
These flagship programs are a significant addition to the support for advanced batteries, new and expanded tax credits for EV purchases, and funding for the installation of charging infrastructure provided by the Inflation Reduction Act, along with dozens of other federal initiatives aimed at promoting domestic manufacturing and building a nationwide network of EV charging stations.
