Tesla announced that non-Tesla vehicles can now charge at a few Icelandic Superchargers on its Tesla Charging Twitter feed. Iceland is now the fourteenth nation to have access to Tesla’s Pilot Program to Supercharge non-Tesla Vehicles.
After confirming that Tesla would allow other electric vehicle manufacturers to use its charging stations, its Pilot Supercharger program was unveiled in July 2021.
Electrek reported Tesla’s plan to gradually broaden its pilot program to extensively test the user experience between non-Tesla owners and current Tesla owners who will witness higher traffic at Tesla charging stations.
In retrospect, the company revealed in January that more stations in France and Norway would be included in the program. The program was extended to include all Supercharger locations in the Netherlands a month later. Even more, the pilot program was again expanded a few weeks later to cover some Supercharger stations in the UK, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, and Austria.
Meanwhile, more of Spain and the United Kingdom were added in the program in May, followed by Denmark, Finland, Germany, Luxembourg, and Switzerland. Impressively, Tesla expanded the pilot program in Europe a month later.

It is worth noting that over the past few months, Tesla has been relatively silent on the matter. Now, it is remarkably expanding the pilot program.
With the recent opening of Tesla Superchargers in Iceland, Tesla owners can now drive more freely across the island owing to the extensive Supercharger network.
Meanwhile, North America’s access to non-Tesla EVs Supercharger network is anticipated to materialize by the year’s end. With the help of the Pilot Program, Tesla is figuring out how to provide other automakers access to the Supercharger Network in the United States.
