Deal with EG Group marks first time that Tesla has sold its EV charger technology to a European third party

UK petrol station operator EG Group will add Tesla Supercharger technology to its forecourts. 

It’s the first time that Tesla has sold its EV charger technology to a European third party – and it paves the way for similar deals to be done, the American electric car giant said.

The new EV Point-branded chargers – which can reach speeds of up to 150kW – will be open-access and not restricted to use by Tesla cars, as is mainly the case with the firm's current 1100-strong Supercharger network in the UK.

This deal is part of a move to grow EG Group’s charging network from 600 across 189 sites to more than 20,000 across 3600 sites.
