Tesla has decided to increase the cable size of its Superchargers. She made the announcement on Inverstor's Day on Wednesday. As Phonandroid explains, this choice was necessary since the American firm opened its network of Superchargers to other electric cars in 2022.
Owners of some of these models wishing to benefit from charging are indeed faced with a problem: the cable is too short.
Many vehicles hindered
When Tesla owners want to charge their vehicle, they park in reverse, so they can easily connect the cable to the charger socket. On Elon Musk's brand models, this plug is located at the left rear of the vehicle. But this is not the case for all competing models, such as the Rivan R1T which has its connection socket at the front.
It's even more complicated for others. Those who own a Ford F150 Lightning must stick to the terminal to hope to be able to connect the power cable, says Phonandroid. For others, the only solution would even be to park crookedly, thus occupying two spaces. For now, Tesla has not indicated the length of the new cables.
