General Motors said Thursday it has reached an agreement with Tesla to allow GM electric vehicles to charge at 12,000 Tesla Superchargers starting next spring.
GM also will build Tesla's preferred North American Charging Standard connectors into its EVs starting in 2025, the automaker said. GM will weave Tesla’s Supercharger network into its own vehicle and mobile apps.
“In order to drive EV adoption, we need to have a robust charging infrastructure. And so I'm really excited to announce our collaboration with you and with Tesla,” GM CEO Mary Barra said Thursday afternoon in a Twitter Spaces conversation with Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
“We have a real opportunity here to really drive this to be the unified standard for North America, which I think will even enable more mass adoption,” Barra said.
