Tesla Charging Network: All the Upcoming Compatible EVs

These EVs will soon gain access to Tesla's Supercharger network, and other charging networks will also adopt the NACS plug.

People who drive diesel- or gas-powered vehicles can pull up to almost any fuel pump and fill their tanks without having to think twice. It’s not that simple for EV drivers. That’s because electric vehicles currently have one of several different charge ports, from the oddball CHAdeMO to the more common Combined Charging System (CCS) and Tesla’s proprietary North American Charging Standard (NACS).

Tesla’s NACS charge port and the company’s extensive network of Superchargers are largely considered the gold standard, and it appears other automakers are ready to make Tesla’s system the industry standard. In May 2023, Ford was the first to agree to team up with Tesla and adopt the NACS plug; then the dominos started falling, with several other automakers recently announcing agreements with Tesla. The engineering group SAE International also announced that it will standardize the NACS connector.

With other automakers—and charging networks—expected to adopt Tesla’s plug, we’ve compiled a list of them as well as those we’ve heard are in talks to join. We’ll update this list as new agreements are confirmed or if we hear of more potential deals.


Automakers That Have Agreed to Adopt Tesla’s Charging Plug



Fisker has announced an agreement to adopt Tesla’s NACS charge port starting in 2025. While the startup EV automaker is largely unknown to most people, the company’s reboot kicks off with the Fisker Ocean EV SUV. More electric models are set to follow in the form of the 1000-hp Rōnin, the sub-$30K Pear, and the utilitarian Alaska truck by the end of 2025


Starting in the spring of 2024, Ford EV owners will have access to the Tesla Supercharger network. Currently, the Ford F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E feature a CCS-type charge port, but an adapter will allow them to connect to Tesla’s fast-chargers. Sometime in 2025, Ford says its new EVs will feature a standard NACS plug.


Genesis Motor North America announced on October 5, 2023, that it will adopt NACS as the exclusive charging port for its EVs, starting in the United States in late 2024 and in Canada in 2025. Starting in the first quarter of 2025, Genesis said, owners of Genesis EVs with the CCS port will be able to use an adapter to charge their vehicles on the Tesla Supercharger network. Genesis will also offer adapters for owners of NACS-equipped vehicles so they can charge on CCS equipment.


General Motors was the second automaker to ink a deal with Tesla to adopt its charge port. GM EV owners will gain access to Tesla’s Superchargers starting in 2024 with an adapter that lets their CCS ports work with NACS. GM will begin making NACS standard on all of its EVs starting in 2025. The company also said it will offer adapters so NACS-equipped models can connect to CCS chargers.

Charging Networks Adopting NACS

Along with the automakers who have announced agreements with Tesla, some public charging networks have also inked deals to offer the NACS connector at its stations.


ChargePoint has announced it will add the NACS-type plug to its charging stations. However, the company hasn’t revealed any specific details about when that will happen, other than simply saying it will be “soon.” ChargePoint also said it will continue to offer other types of chargers.

Electrify America

Electrify America, which is owned by the Volkswagen Group, has announced that it too will adopt Tesla’s NACS connector. The charging network said it plans to offer the new plug at its stations in 2025. It will also continue to offer other types of plugs.
