- Ford, General Motors, and BMW were the first automakers to announce switching to NACS.
- New 2025 models will have NACS charging ports installed in the vehicles.
- Models made before 2024 will need a NACS adaptor to access the Tesla Supercharger stations.
- Automakers will update their charging apps for seamless integration into the Tesla Supercharger network.
The list of EV manufacturers switching from CCS (Combined Charging System) to NACS (North American Charging Standard) continues to grow. These automakers made agreements with Tesla to give their EVs access to the network of Superchargers around the United States and Canada.
Tesla has already added CCS adaptors to some charging stations along the coasts and in Texas, opening up charging opportunities for non-Tesla EV drivers.
Opening up the NACS charging stations gives non-Tesla drivers an additional 12,000 fast-charging charging stations around North America. By opening Supercharger stations to all EVs, Tesla becomes eligible to take advantage of financial incentives from the US federal government.
The non-Tesla electric vehicle manufacturers that will begin installing North American Charging Standard charging ports in 2024 and 2025 include:
- General Motors
- Hyundai & Kia
- Volkswagen Group (VW, Porsche, Audi, Scout Motors)
