Tesla has opened more Superchargers in Norway to third-party brands, meaning almost the entire route to the North Cape is now open to e-cars from other manufacturers, according to one observer.
This will involve 42 more Supercharger sites, according to various reports, where non-Teslas will now be able to charge. After an initial test of ten sites in the Netherlands in November 2021, Tesla had opened its first charging parks in Norway and France to third-party brands this January - initially 15 in Norway and 16 in France.
With the current move, Tesla has greatly increased the number of freely accessible Superchargers in Norway and almost completely covered the aforementioned route to the North Cape, but some locations will likely remain exclusive to Tesla drivers. At least that's what's reported from the Vikesa station in southern Norway - but there are plenty of alternatives there. Even in the north, the entire route to the North Cape isn't completely covered with Superchargers. In places, the distance is around 400 kilometers.
The procedure remains the same: drivers of electric cars from other brands can only start and end charging processes manually via the Tesla app. The kWh prices vary depending on the location, with a monthly membership the running costs can be reduced.
