In a groundbreaking move for Europe, Tesla is solidifying its status as a major player in the global EV charging infrastructure scene.

Today, EG Group, a British fuel station operator, made waves by revealing its plans to integrate Tesla’s ultra-fast electric vehicle chargers into its evpoint business.

The company boasts a rapidly expanding charging network, currently comprising over 600 chargers across 189 sites. However, this is just the beginning. The ambitious goal is to roll out more than 20,000 chargers, strategically placed at about 3,600 locations throughout the United Kingdom and continental Europe.

This collaboration presents a significant business opportunity for Tesla. The company, once solely a charger manufacturer and operator of its exclusive charging network, is now making big strides. Tesla’s charging network has opened its doors to non-Tesla EVs on a global scale. Simultaneously, the company is making its charging solution available to third-party networks, establishing partnerships with entities.

EG Group just nailed a groundbreaking deal with Tesla in Europe – the first of its kind. Zuber Issa, EG Group’s Founder and co-CEO, is pumped about it, stating that getting top-notch Tesla gear is a game-changer for their evpoint initiative. It’s a historic move for Tesla too, as it’s their maiden deal with a third-party charge point operator in Europe. Issa believes it’s a revolution for how people juice up their rides and connect with EG.

Now, the buzz is that Tesla’s latest V4 Superchargers are so hot that they might pull in other major charging networks. This could rattle the cage for the smaller EV charger manufacturers who usually don’t churn out chargers in massive quantities.

Rebecca Tinucci, Tesla’s Senior Director of Charging Infrastructure, spilled the beans that Tesla is open for business with other companies. She stressed how zippy and user-friendly EV charging points are vital for a greener tomorrow. That’s why Tesla is throwing its fast-charging hardware into the ring, up for grabs not just for EG Group but for other big players in the field. It’s all about speeding up the shift to a sustainable future.

EG Group reports that Tesla’s hardware for EV chargers will work on an open network. This means any driver can use evpoint chargers, no matter their vehicle brand. In Europe, all new DC fast chargers, including Tesla Superchargers, are CCS2-compatible, eliminating connector compatibility concerns. Moreover, the chargers will adopt the Plug and Charge protocol, streamlining and automating payment processes.

The rollout of the initial Tesla EV chargers in EG Group’s evpoint network is anticipated by year-end, highlighting Tesla’s swift delivery and installation capabilities.
