In the US, testing of Tesla's first Supercharger with Magic Dock has started, enabling non-Tesla electric vehicles (EVs) to recharge their batteries (US). The Elon Musk-led company has been allowing non-Tesla EV owners in Europe to use its Supercharger network for a while now. And this time, it has started doing so in the continent of North America. In the US, testing of Tesla's first Magic Dock supercharger has begun. According to a recent Electrek story, the manufacturer of electric vehicles has begun adding Magic Docks to one of its Superchargers in the US.

Nevertheless, the Supercharger network in the US had not yet started offering charging services to owners of other vehicles as we rang in the new year. According to the reports, it is a little trickier in North America than it is in Europe to make the Tesla charging network accessible to other electric vehicle manufacturers. The Musk-led EV manufacturer has a CCS connector that is already available in the European market and supports other automakers. The US-based Superchargers, on the other hand, use a Tesla-exclusive connector, making it impossible for owners of other EVs to top off their batteries there. The massive auto manufacturer would need to switch to a new connector or adaptor in order to open its doors to everyone else.

The electric vehicle manufacturer began working on the concept by adding a "Magic Dock" to one of its Supercharger locations in the US. A Rivian R1T electric pickup truck has been sighted charging at the first Tesla Supercharger station with the "Magic Dock" as a result, according to a report.

The Magic Dock's CCS connector can be used by non-Tesla EV owners by unlocking it with the Tesla app. It should then convert the Tesla Supercharger connector into a CCS adaptor as a result.
