Tesla to open 12,000 Superchargers to Ford across U.S. and Canada

Ford is set to gain access to 12,000 Tesla Supercharger locations across the United States and Canada and a new partnership announced on Thursday.

“This is great news for our customers who will have unprecedented access to the largest network of fast-chargers in the U.S. and Canada with 12,000+ Tesla Superchargers plus 10,000+ fast-chargers already in the BlueOval Charge Network,” CEO Jim Farley said. “Widespread access to fast-charging is absolutely vital to our growth as an EV brand, and this breakthrough agreement comes as we are ramping up production of our popular Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning, and preparing to launch a series of next-generation EVs starting in 2025.”

Beginning in 2025, Ford electric vehicle owners will not have to use a North American Charging Standard adapter to charge their EVs at Tesla Supercharger locations.

The partnership is monumental for several reasons. First, it is the first time Tesla has established a committed partnership with another “rival” auto maker in the U.S. sector where it continues to dominate the EV market.

Secondly, it provides a significant advantage to Ford, as it will gain somewhat exclusive access to a considerable number of Tesla Supercharging locations.

Tesla announced earlier this year that it would open its superchargers in the United States to all Evies in an effort to gain a slice of the $7.5 billion government-funded Bipartisan Infrastructure Law introduced by President Joe Biden.

Ford electric vehicles will be able to utilize Tesla charging locations beginning in Spring 2024, according to the Detroit-based automaker.
