EV Rapid Charging FAIL | Tesla Super Charger & MG ZS EV Don't Mix Attempt #1| Electric Car Australia

Well we gave it a shot and had a Fail on attempt #1 rapid charging the 2020 model MG ZS EV on my local Tesla Super Charger’s. This video goes through the blow by blow account of using the Tesla App to locate and identify the operating EV charger’s, adding credit card details to my Tesla account and unlocking/activating the chargers. Problem is the communications between the MG EV and Tesla Charger gives the impression it’s not a loving relationship… least on this meeting.

I’m going to give it another shot at a different Tesla Super Charger location in the future so stay tuned and smash that ‘Bell’ icon so your alerted when the video goes live.

I’m sure you will enjoy the video and I’m looking forward to reading your comments to see if you have had similar experience charging a non Tesla vehicle on the Tesla Super Charger network.
