14th March will be the launch/ unveil of the Tesla Model Y - the mid-size SUV based on the Model3 platform that is likely to significantly exceed TM3 sales in this globally popular car segment and no doubt be highly profitable ...

Oh and the new Version 3 Superchargers being installed for the first time this week - rumoured to be as much as 250kW charging capability but letís see what they actually say.   Never a dull day in Tesla land...

IMHO The gov really needs to ban these ďone manufacturer charging stationsĒ before it gets out of hand.  It just doesnít scale, as grid capacity is limited in the best sites, and there is enough of a problem with rapid charging infrastructure already.  Itís a much more serious problem than phone chargers all being different!

Super chargers are being fitted with ccs connectors so in theory could charge other cars if manufacturers wanted to join/pay. The vast majority of long range evís are tesla and this is set to increase much mure rapidly over the next few years as the competition are not building  cars in anywhere near the same volume.

from the start Tesla has always said that its Supercharger network is technically open to use to any other BEV manufacturer if and when they approach Tesla to ask so that the software can be tested and made to work reliably.   
Elon has stated more than once that to this day no major manufacturer has so far made that approach (apart from Rivian who donít have an actual vehicle on the road and are barely at working prototype stage)
Itís not governments stopping that happening itís the legacy ICE manufacturers.
