Ford electric vehicle owners will soon gain access to Tesla’s vast EV charging network, according to the CEOs of both companies.

Beginning next year, Ford EV owners in the United States can use the Ford’s mobile app to use Tesla’s 12,000 Supercharger stations — the company’s name for its fast charging stations.

The partnership was announced by Ford (F) CEO Jim Farley and Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk on a Twitter Spaces livestream on Thursday. Musk is also the CEO and owner of Twitter.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Ford as a company, and it makes great vehicles. This is something we’re super happy to support,” Musk said during the livestream.

Farley also announced that Ford’s next-generation EVs would be made with Tesla-style charging ports rather than the so-called CCS chargers used by most other EV markers, including General Motors, Audi, and Rivian. Tesla’s charging stations outnumber CCS stations in the United States.
