    Just a taste of what is to come.​

    GM today announced it is collaborating with Tesla to integrate the Tesla North American Charging Standard (NACS) connector design into its EVs beginning in 2025. Additionally, GM EV owners will have access to charging at 12,000 Tesla Superchargers across North America.

    The Tesla Supercharger Network will be open to GM EV drivers starting in 2024 and will initially require the use of an adapter. Beginning in 2025, the first GM EVs will be built with a NACS inlet for direct access to Tesla Superchargers without an adapter. In the future, GM will make adapters available for drivers of NACS-enabled vehicles to allow charging on CCS-capable fast charge stations.

    GM will also integrate the Tesla Supercharger Network into its vehicle and mobile apps, helping drivers quickly and easily locate, pay for, and initiate charging at available Tesla Superchargers. This will complement the charging experience at the growing Ultium Charge 360 Network of charging stations, as well as additional charging stations GM makes available through existing integrations with other charging networks.

    GMs Ultium Charge 360 initiative includes collaborations with EVgo that will add more than 5,000 DC fast chargers to the nearly 13,000 existing DC fast chargers in North America. These initiatives, combined with this new collaboration with Tesla, will offer GM customers access to one of the largest integrated networks of high-power charging stations in North America.

    In GMs case, this will occur just in time for their all-new Cadillac ESCALADE IQ BEV, scheduled to be revealed later this year. The ESCALADE IQ will join the LYRIQ and the upcoming CELESTIQ as Cadillac continues to build an all-electric portfolio.

    All in, both Ford and GM are probably steaming given the inability to afford to build their own networks while the CCS based Electrify America DCFC network is not serving EV owners in a reliable manner as it should.

    Tesla stock is up 11-days in a row and is not only well off the low 100s, but it has also broken its long term downtrend and blew through its 200-day MA.

    Hi All:

    Toyota Set to Adopt the Tesla North American Charging Standard (NACS)

    During the same week in which Tesla misses Sales, Revenue, and Earnings targets with a huge hit to its valuation, Toyota decides to move to the dark side. ;)

    This evening, Toyota announced it has reached an agreement with Tesla to adopt the (its?) North American Charging Standard (NACS) for its battery electric vehicles (BEVs) beginning in 2025. Toyota and Lexus customers will soon have access to more than 12,000 Tesla Superchargers across North America.


    Toyota will incorporate the NACS ports into certain Toyota and Lexus BEVs starting in 2025, including the all-new, three-row, battery-electric Toyota SUV that will be assembled at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky (TMMK). Additionally, customers owning or leasing applicable Toyota and Lexus vehicles equipped with the Combined Charging System (CCS) will be offered access to an adapter to enable NACS charging starting in 2025.

    Dedicated to delivering a seamless charging experience, whether at home or in public, Toyota aims to provide convenience no matter where customers choose to charge their vehicles. Through the Toyota and Lexus apps, customers have access to an extensive charging network, comprising over 84,000 charging ports in North America, including level 2 and DC fast chargers. With NACS, customers will have access to more charging options, especially DC fast chargers, allowing greater confidence to travel to even more destinations.

    VW, Audi, Porsche and Scout will implement the North American Charging Standard (NACS) in future EVs

    VW, Audi, Porsche, and Scout Motors parent, announced they are planning implement the North American Charging Standard (NACS) for future BEVs in the North American region, beginning in 2025. To enable existing customers with a Combined Charging System (CCS) charging port to access the Tesla Supercharger network, the brands are exploring adapter solutions for their existing BEVs. This has the potential to expand customer charging access to more than 15,000 Superchargers. This is in addition to the more than 3,800 DC fast charging outlets currently in operation by Electrify America and Electrify Canada.

    Electrify America has already announced it will work to offer the NACS connector at charging stations by 2025 in North America, as well as continuing to support CCS.

    VW remains committed to improving the charging experience through open standards and interoperability.

    Details of the planned integration of the Tesla North American Charging Standard into specific models will follow as the launch date of 2025 nears.
