Tesla to open charging network to other EVs

Tesla is set to let other brands' electric cars use its charging stations.

That's according to a Tweet by boss Elon Musk.

He says the move will come later this year, and over time be extended around the world.

Tesla has about 25,000 of its so-called 'superchargers' globally, giving it a competitive edge.

Other carmakers have scrambled to form alliances or invest in startups to develop charging infrastructure.

Companies including Volkswagen's Electrify America are building networks across the U.S.

President Joe Biden last month unveiled a massive investment package that includes $7.5 billion for EV infrastructure.

Meanwhile, Germany has been pressing Tesla to open its system to other firms.

Governments around the world think that better charging options will encourage consumers to make the switch to electric driving.
