This video is worth watching. Tesla is known for not allowing anyone to work on it. If they don’t like what you did to Their car you purchased they can cut you off. When you “buy” an EV are you allowed to work on it, maybe customize it? Remember when you can go to an auto part store and fix your own car. If you do not have control of your car do you really “own” it. Having a charger network being able to disallow cars they do not like from their network is like not being allowed to get gas for for your car because its to old. Imagine you have your ID4 for 10 years, technology changes and the charging network no longer will support your “outdated” car. I suppose it is like an IPhone Then. This is a scary.
