Previously, Superchargers have only been available to Tesla owners, but the American car maker has indicated in the past that it would be open to making the network accessible to other manufacturers, pending a cost-sharing agreement was in place.
Now, Musk has suggested one such "low-key" agreement is already underway – although details are limited.
The billionaire Tesla founder was responding to a question from American YouTuber Marques Brownlee who asked via Twitter: "Serious question: Why don't more electric car makers take up Tesla on their offer to use the Supercharging network? Incompatible tech? Hidden fees? Pride? There's gotta be a good reason."
Musk replied: "They are, although it’s kind low-key. Tesla Superchargers are being made accessible to other electric cars."

Musk has offered no further detail as to which other manufacturers have begun using the chargers or exactly how "low-key" the arrangement is.
Tesla has more than 2000 Supercharger stations worldwide, with more than 20,000 Supercharger plugs spread across those sites, and each charger is capable of taking a car from 0 to 80 per cent battery capacity in around 40 minutes.
Most Superchargers offer a 120kW rate of charge, but a recent V3 update saw that charging power increase to 250kW at certain locations overseas.
The Superchargers use the CCS plug type, which is compatible with a handful of electric cars already sold in Australia, including the Jaguar I-Pace (others, like the Nissan Leaf, utilise a ChaDeMo plug).
At least count, Tesla has 36 Supercharger sites around Australia alone, with at least seven more on the way.
Tesla's current Supercharger pricing in Australia is $0.52 per kilowatt hour (kWh), while other providers like Chargefox typically charge around $0.40 per kWh.
