Today in Moab Utah. 2 Rivians , 1 F150, 1 Unkown , 1 Tesla. 3 of the 4 it was their first time at a Supercharger and took them a little while to figure it out. They were thrilled that it worked.

Said it before, bares repeating:

When it comes to supercharger crowding, if you aren’t worried about the millions of Teslas coming on line over the next few years, no reason to worry about the *maybe* tens of thousands on non-Teslas coming online in next few years.

Wait … how are these vehicles using superchargers right now, like, already?

something doesn’t add up?

One of them said it was the first magic dock setup in utah.
And I watched the process. It does add up.

Unfortunately it's at a 60/40 split for 2023 and as other companies continue to ramp up there will only be more non Tesla at Supercharger with magic dock and the V4. I really hope Tesla works with them to increase the speeds as much as possible to not be pulling 50 kw and wreck it for everyone else.

So many of the non Tesla folks that I've talked to at work are sick of EA and how squirrely it can be so they can't wait to get their adapters before the NACS change. I'm sure it varies for everyone but the demand to use the SC network is there
