Which cars does the Tesla adapter fit in? One key aspect of Tesla's dominance in the EV market is its proprietary charging connector. While this connector is tailored for Tesla vehicles, many wonder: which cars can utilize a Tesla adapter to access Tesla's extensive Supercharger network or other charging stations?

Until now, Tesla’s network of Supercharger fast electric car chargers has been off-limits to drivers of electric vehicles from other brands. But BMW, Ford, Genesis, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Kia, Lucid, Mini, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Polestar, Rivian, Toyota, and Volvo have said that their vehicles will be able to use certain Tesla Superchargers starting as soon as 2024. Mazda, Stellantis, and Volkswagen Group of America since announced that its brands—Audi, Porsche, Scout Motors, and Volkswagen—will implement the NACS standard on vehicles starting in the 2025 model year.

In addition, a group of seven major automakers recently announced that they plan to open 30,000 of their own charging stations across the U.S. in the near future.

The Tesla adapter is designed specifically for Tesla vehicles to allow them to charge at non-Tesla charging stations. It's not intended to fit into other vehicles. However, if you're referring to the charging connector compatibility for Tesla vehicles, they typically come with adapters or ports that allow them to be charged at various types of charging stations, such as J1772 for Level 2 charging or CCS for DC fast charging, depending on the model and region.

Why Is Tesla Opening Up Its Superchargers to Other Brands?

There are at least a few reasons: In order to qualify for a slice of the $7.5 billion earmarked for EV charging network expansion in the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which was designed to address climate change, healthcare, and taxes, Tesla has said it will open up 7,500 chargers from its Supercharger and Destination Charger network to non-Tesla vehicles by the end of 2024, a project that is already in progress. Tesla also benefits when other vehicles pay to use its Superchargers, and experts say charging could become an important source of income for the automaker. On its website, Tesla says that it has “always been our ambition to open the Supercharger network to non-Tesla EVs, and by doing so, encourage more drivers to go electric,” and that the company aims to eventually open all Superchargers to all EVs.

Which Non-Tesla EVs Can Charge at Tesla Superchargers?

Any non-Tesla EV except for the Nissan Leaf and Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (which use an incompatible plug standard called CHAdeMO) can currently charge at one of the limited number of Tesla Superchargers that offers a Magic Dock adapter. The Magic Dock enables EVs with a Combined Charging Standard (CCS) plug (most non-Tesla vehicles) to use Tesla’s chargers, which are designed for its North American Charging Standard (NACS) plugs. Tesla says more Magic Docks may be installed at more Superchargers in the future, although the number of chargers hasn’t grown significantly since the initial announcement earlier this year. Additionally, Magic Dock users must use the Tesla app instead of enjoying the seamless experience of simply plugging in for payment.

Most automakers have announced that owners of their EVs will have access to 12,000 of Tesla’s Superchargers beginning as soon as next year. They have also announced that they will adopt Tesla’s NACS charging standard on their upcoming models, which will allow them to plug in at many newer Superchargers even without the Magic Dock, giving owners more options when they’re far from home.

Can Non-Tesla Cars Charge at Any Supercharger?

No. For automakers that are partnering with Tesla, only 12,000 of Tesla’s more than 17,000 Supercharger ports will be available to vehicles with NACS ports or adapters. According to automakers and industry analysts, these will be V3 Superchargers, which were installed in 2019 or later. Older Superchargers will not work with non-Tesla vehicles. Compatibility with Tesla’s upcoming V4 Supercharger is not yet known.
