Tesla opens select Superchargers to all EVs in New Zealand
The Superchargers are equipped with NACS and CCS connectors, not with a Magic Dock built-in CCS1 adapter, which Tesla uses in the US and Canada.
Concretely, the above-mentioned locations are in Rotorua (6 Superchargers), New Plymouth (3 Superchargers), Christchurch (4 Superchargers), Timaru (6 Superchargers), and Queenstown (4 Superchargers). Non-Tesla drivers pay about a 20 per cent premium over Tesla owners, while the rate can be brought down with a Tesla Charging membership.
New Zealand is thus the latest market where the EV maker launched its Non-Tesla Supercharger Pilot programme. There are a total of 17 Supercharger locations in the country.
Tesla’s ‘Non-Tesla pilot’ is currently available in more than 20 countries, including the US and Canada, 15 European countries such as Germany, France and the UK, Australia and China.
