Taking advantage of the bug that the Californian brand seems to be experiencing, a Renault ZOE owner filmed the charging of his vehicle on a Tesla supercharger.
If we initially believed in a fake, the multiplication of testimonies on the web has confirmed the veracity of the information. Obviously the victim of a computer bug on the V3 of its superchargers, Tesla accidentally opened its ultra-fast chargers to all competing brands.
On Youtube, the owner of a new Renault ZOE shared his experience of testing the device on his Renault ZOE. As you can see in the video above, handling is simple and does not require a badge. By simply plugging in the vehicle using the Combo connector, the charge automatically activated in seconds.
The Renault city car is not the only one to benefit from this temporary access, however. All vehicles with the Combo connector seem to be able to access the manufacturer’s V3 superchargers. Another video produced by a German rental company was able to validate the correct operation with other models including the Volkswagen ID.3, the Kia e-Niro, the BMW i3 or the electric Hyundai Kona.
