US President Joe Biden praised Elon Musk for opening up a giant a part of Tesla’s Supercharger network for all EV drivers within the US. He noted that it’s a giant deal that may make a giant difference to achieve the administration’s goal of delivering 500,000 chargers along highways within the US by 2030.
President Biden has praised Tesla and its founder Elon Musk for his or her vital contribution to spurring the spread of electrical vehicles within the US. The corporate will open nearly all of its Supercharger network within the US to all electric vehicles, which implies the corporate’s hundreds of charging stations will support the nation’s transition to electric vehicles, giving confidence that EV drivers will find a way to charge their vehicles all over the place. The President wrote on Twitter:
“In constructing our EV charging network, we now have to be certain that as many chargers work for as many drivers as possible.
To that end, Elon Musk will open a giant a part of Tesla’s network as much as all drivers.
That is a giant deal, and it will make a giant difference.”
In response, Elon Musk thanked Biden and said that Tesla is joyful to support all electric vehicles with its Supercharger network, which is the widest charging network within the US and worldwide.
“Thanks, Tesla is joyful to support other EVs via our Supercharger network”

By the top of next yr, Tesla plans to make available 7,500 Supercharger stations—between recent and current ones—on highways and at hotels and restaurants, in response to the Office of the President. The discussion of this move during a virtual call, with the participation of Musk and CEOs of other firms, began back in April 2022.
“Elon Musk was on that decision,” said White House Infrastructure Coordinator Mitch Landrieu. “He was very open, he was very constructive, and, at the moment, he said his intent was to work with us to make his network interoperable.”
