Ford and Tesla Partner to Give Ford EV Owners Access to Tesla Superchargers

Ford and Tesla have announced a new partnership that will give Ford electric vehicle (EV) owners access to Tesla’s proprietary Supercharger network in the US and Canada from early next year.[0] Under the arrangement, current Ford EV owners will be granted access to more than 12,000 Tesla Superchargers across the two countries via an adapter, while Ford’s next-generation EVs — expected by mid-decade — will include Tesla’s charging plug, allowing owners of Ford vehicles to charge at Tesla Superchargers without an adapter.[1] The move is expected to accelerate the adoption of Tesla’s preferred charging setup and will make Ford among the first automakers to explicitly tie into the network. In addition, Ford dealers are adding around 1,800 public-facing fast-chargers and locations to the BlueOval Charge Network by early 2024.[2]
