Nissan & BMW show interest in charging partnership with Tesla
According to a report in the Financial Times, the three carmakers are in talks following Tesla Motors’ decision to open up its patents to rivals to accelerate EV development.
‘We believe that Tesla, other companies making electric cars, and the world would all benefit from a common, rapidly-evolving technology platform,’ said Tesla CEO and co-founder Elon Musk last week.
Now, sources have told the Financial Times that Nissan, BMW and Tesla are keen to collaborate on creating possible global vehicle-charging standards.
‘It is obviously clear that everyone would benefit if there was a far more simple way for everyone to charge their cars,’ said an executive, asking not to be named as the plans are not yet official, the paper reported.
