EVs Joining the Club

Tesla’s Supercharger’s Extended Family: Check Out the EVs Joining the Club

We are currently situated in a memorable and rapidly-changing point of automotive history! Some drivers are intent on sticking with gas models, while others have been won over by electric. If you have already made the switch, you have definitely figured out which kind of charge port you have. Most electric models are bound by the Combined Charging System (CCS). Tesla uses the North American Charging Standard (NACS). For Tesla’s network, we’ll check out the EVs joining the club. 

Check Out the EVS Joining the Club:

Tesla’s network of superchargers has long been considered the superior choice. Ford was the first automaker to officially team up with Tesla in May of 2023. Now engineering group SAE International has officially announced that it will standardize the NACS connector. Many auto experts were certain that this would eventually be the case! Following is a list of some of the auto industry’s major players that will embrace this once-exclusive option.


BMW has announced its plan to adopt Tesla’s NACS charge port beginning in early 2025. The Rolls-Royce and Mini namesakes won’t be left out either! Existing BMW EVs with the CCS-type port will be able to use an adapter to be compatible with the supercharger network. This much-loved brand is also working on a way to integrate an in-car app to handle charging. This is a legendary brand that always delivers on premium comfort and luxury.


Fisker officially announced their agreement to adopt Tesla’s NACS charge port beginning in 2025. This very savvy brand is still not widely-known, but they will be soon making waves with their Ocean EV. Soon after, the ocean will be joined by the mighty Ronin, the mid-priced Pear, and the Alaska truck. Their contours, proportions, and attractive lines characterize these vehicles.


This is a brand that is not in need of much of an introduction! As early as spring 2024, Ford owners can access the Tesla Supercharger network. The F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E currently use the CCS charging variety. An adapter coming soon will allow them to connect to Tesla’s fast chargers. New arrivals post-2024 will feature a standard NACS charger.


This company just announced Oct 5, 2023, that it will adopt NACS as its primary charging port. Beginning in early 2025, Genesis owners of vehicles with the CCS port will be able to use an adapter. Audiences were amazed with the X Convertible as well as the X Speedium Coupe. Their GV70 and GV80 models are KBB favorites thanks to their classy looks and excellent performance. 


GM was the second automaker to secure a deal with Tesla to feature their revolutionary charge port. As early as Q1 in 2024, GM owners will be able to use an adapter that allows their CCS ports to operate with NACS. GM will also offer its own brand of adapters that allow NACS-equipped models to “play well” with NACS chargers. 


Honda is well known for efficient and popular vehicles such as the Civic, Accord, and CR-V. They just announced that their new electric models will feature the NACS plug by 2025. They will also follow the lead of many other companies by introducing an adapter to be compatible with Tesla’s network. Taking on the holidays with a family in tow? Honda’s great models such as the Odyssey have got you covered with abundant space and comfort.


Hyundai announced in October 2023 that refreshed or brand-new models will be fitted with the NACS charge port. This will begin in the fourth quarter of 2024, while Hyundai will also offer an adapter to existing EV drivers who are without NACS ports. Hyundai has won many customers over with the Elantra, Sonata, and game-changing Ioniq 6. 


Jaguar announced in September 2023 that its high-end and very awesome upcoming EVs will be compatible with the NACS starting in 2025. The F-Type and XF Luxury Sedan are both some of the most attractive wheels in their segments. The E-Pace turns heads consistently as an example of mastering jaw-dropping design.


Kia announced on Oct 5th, 2023 that NACS ports will now be built into North American EVs for the 4th quarter of 2024. If you’re hitting the road in one of the latest Kia models, the Kia Connect app is great for finding charging locations. One important note here is that the 2015-2019 Kia Soul still functions on CHAdeMO charging. 


Mercedes-Benz was the first of the German automakers to officially announce plans for making the switch to Tesla’s NACS charge port. Mercedes is definitely iconic enough to have its own charging network! This plan is also gaining ground, with over 2,500 fast chargers coming soon nationwide. The first of these brand-specific chargers will arrive in North America at the end of this year. No need to worry: they will also be available to non-Mercedes EVs.


Nissan is the first from the hailed Japanese carmaker’s club to announce plans for Tesla’s NACS charge port compatibility. It begins in the U.S. and Canada in 2025. The Nissan Ariya is equipped with a CCS-style port, with the proper adapter for Tesla’s network arriving in 2024. The industry has awarded and acclaimed their 2023 models with numerous honors and accolades. The 2023 Nissan Rogue was named the winner of the Cars.com “2023 Compact SUV Challenge.” 


Polestar and Volvo were the first foreign brands to join forces with Tesla on the charger issue. Both of these segment-leading Swedish brands will make the NACS port standard on all of their EVs beginning in 2025. The adapter to make the NACS port standard on all of their EVS beginning in 2025. Their excellent EX90 model took home the “Green Good Design Award” honor for 2023!


Rivian decided to cooperate with Tesla’s charging format just after Ford and GM. Their R1T pickup and R1S SUV will obtain NACS ports sometime in 2025. They will also be on schedule to provide an adapter for these models next year. Kbb had claimed this year that Rivian is absolutely “A brand that is no slouch in the payload and towing departments.”

Electric Dreams Come True: EVs Joining the Club in Tesla’s Charging World

Stellantis executives have recently confirmed that they are considering adopting Tesla’s charging ports. This would pave the way for Maserati, Ram, Jeep, and Dodge to provide charging options for Tesla. Reuters also reported late this summer that Volkswagen is also said to be considering a deal with Tesla. This would likely also include their sister brands such as Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Porsche.

What do you think of all of these EVs joining the club that will now be able to charge with Tesla’s hardware? This is likely going to be a win-win situation for the widespread acceptance of electrification, but there could be some minor bumps in the road.
