Nissan adopts the Tesla North American Charging Standard (NACS) for its electric vehicles. Drivers of Nissan electric vehicles in North America will have access to Tesla's extensive Supercharger network. The company became the first Japanese automaker to take this step.

Nissan has reached an agreement with Tesla to adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) starting in 2025, the company said. As part of the agreement, Nissan customers will get even more options for charging their electric vehicles. Nissan became the first Japanese automaker to announce support for NACS.

Starting in 2024, Nissan will provide a NACS charging adapter for Ariya models to enable them to be charged at Tesla Superchargers. Currently, they are equipped with the Combined Charging System 1 (CCS1) for DC fast charging.

Beginning in 2025, Nissan will begin offering electric vehicles for the US and Canadian markets with an NACS port. This will make charging at the Tesla Supercharger network seamless and convenient for drivers. Plus, access to over 12,000 Superchargers in North America will make worrying about charging irrelevant.

“Adopting the NACS standard underlines Nissan’s commitment to making electric mobility even more accessible as we follow our Ambition 2030 long-term vision of greater electrification,” said Jérémie Papin, chairperson, Nissan Americas. “We are happy to provide access to thousands more fast chargers for Nissan EV drivers, adding confidence and convenience when planning long-distance journeys.”
