From now on, we will be shipping non-Tesla brand cars on select superchargers in Germany, Switzerland and Luxembourg.

There were eight of them as of yesterday: Austria, Belgium, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

The Swiss say their country has also chosen less portable superchargers, some only with V2 (2nd generation) terminals, that is, supporting power up to 120-150 kW. For cars of many brands, this is quite a lot, while a completely new Tesla can accelerate to more than 150 kW, sometimes – up to 250 kW. Interestingly, the new locations can be seen in the mobile application, but they are not yet available on the online player map (compare images 1 and 2, as at 22:19, 06/16/2022):
