Wouldn't it be great if GM partnered with Tesla to expand the use of Supercharger technology? Imagine charging in a few minutes using Superchargers with the next generation Chevrolet Volt that has a larger battery.

GM could use the Tesla Motors adapter too, and make a converter available for those with J1772 EVSEs at home like one of the ClipperCreek models.

Thanks for all of the responses everyone. If the battery has two or three options, perhaps one being capable of 100+ miles of EV range, then for long trips using the Tesla Superchargers would be nice in my opinion. This applies to the upcoming Chevrolet Sonic EV too. Even if you couldn't go 100% using Superchargers in the Volt, this could reduce the fuel you use significantly. GM could also offer Supercharger access as an upgrade.

From what I read, Tesla is looking for partners to share/expand the Supercharger network and they have opened their patents up, as Zythryn mentioned:

"...Sure, any of the others could start from scratch to build a slower network, but why when one already exists?"
