    That’s with an adapter. They are counting on the fact that nobody is going to want to use a clunky adapter. The Superchargers are being “opened” so that Tesla can get government subsidies, if it keeps them closed then they’ll be competing with subsidized chargers without receiving the same subsidy. The CHADeMO adapter for Tesla’s is $450, expect the Tesla adapter for CCS to be about the same, that will limit the number of CCS cars that use Superchargers. A native Tesla connector is different, that will make Superchargers truly accessible. However as I mentioned in another post on this thread it won’t be permitted if the car only charges at 50KW. 50KW cars would cripple the Supercharger network.
