That dependability, which the federal government is beginning to monitor, is not guaranteed, and it will be a litmus test of what Tesla has developed and if it can make the transition.

Until now, Tesla Supercharging has been essentially a closed system. There are no other automakers' EVs that can charge.

It's a gamble because the Tesla network isn't yet officially capable of using Tesla's NACS connector, natively or otherwise.

The risk is very certainly motivated by considerably greater reliability ratings, which continue to outperform EVs and networks that use the CCS connector.

The Supercharger network was rated the highest in consumer satisfaction by the automobile research firm J.D. Power.

according to Power's most recent E-Vision Intelligence Report, which was released on Friday and focused on data for the first quarter of 2023.

A much smaller proportion of Tesla drivers are unable to charge during a Supercharger stop.

This directly correlates to substantially greater levels of satisfaction with public charging networks as part of the EV ownership experience.
