I never saw this coming: https://insideevs.com/news/388936/evgo- ... -charging/.

Meh. It’ll keep them from spending too much time on the Chademos with their slow adapters.

Just sayin.

I'm guessing they'll be slower than Superchargers and possibly be even under the 72 kW urban Superchargers, but at least it gives Tesla drivers more choices along busy travel corridors.

Examples:

And, it should give EVgo the opportunity to not be killed by demand charges for underutilized stations.

A few months ago, I saw that eVgo was advertising that they had some Tesla chademo adapters chained onto a few of their DC FC stations for Teslas to use. So I would look at this as the next logical step....A customer is a customer....

I can hardly wait to get "Elon'd" at my only local QC. And yes, I WILL think of a better acronym. I just got up.

I think it’s a great move on their part.

Well... people get Musk'ed. And, sometimes Teslas that get shamed for blocking EV spaces at https://www.facebook.com/groups/evholes/ receive the #THOLE "hash tag".

I suppose that this was inevitable. Tesla is building 400,000 cars a year in the US. With new production in China and the construction of Gigafactory 4 in Germany, most of that US production is going to stay in the US. The majority of EV's in the US are likely to be Tesla's. If you sell electricity to cars and light trucks, you'd like to capture as much business as possible so of course you install compatible equipment. I had hoped that Tesla would add a CCS port to their cars but it looks like the tail wags the dog here. We need more charging stations and if catering to Tesla is the price to get it, so be it.

I received an FB ad that points to https://www.evgo.com/tesla-charging-sf. It has a few more details. I guess the box on the left contains a CHAdeMO adapter but w/much longer cord.
