The July 3 issue of AGREEN1 revealed that 4 EV makers will be adopting Tesla’s charging technology, aka “North American Charging Standard” (NACS) ports. Kia and Hyundai just announced that they would also be adopting NACS ports in 2024 and 2025.
It has been a well-fought battle to decide which EV charging ports would be best to universally adopt for the convenience of drivers and Tesla was the well-deserved victor. Tesla’s supercharger technology proved to be the fastest, best developed, most reliable, and most conveniently located. Currently, Aptera, Honda, Fisker, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Jaguar, GM, Rivian, Polestar, Volvo, and now Kia and Hyundai are partnering with Tesla to use and expand Tesla’s NACS EV supercharging technology ports.
