Volkswagen Group adopts Tesla’s charging standard for North American EVs


Volkswagen, along with its subsidiaries Audi, Porsche, and Scout Motors, has announced plans to adopt Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) for its electric vehicles (EVs) in North America, starting in 2025. The move aims to facilitate broader compatibility and enhance the charging infrastructure for VW’s EV offerings.

Furthermore, VW brands are exploring the possibility of providing adapters to owners of existing models, allowing them to access Tesla’s extensive Supercharger network, which comprises over 15,000 stations in North America. This strategy reflects a collaborative approach to leverage existing charging infrastructure and enhance the convenience for EV owners.

The adoption of NACS by Volkswagen follows a trend in the automotive industry, with various manufacturers committing to support this charging standard in their upcoming electric vehicles. Notable automakers, including GM, Volvo, Polestar, Mercedes, Honda, BMW, and Lucid, have already pledged to incorporate NACS charging in their EVs within the next few years. ChargePoint and Electrify America are also aligning with this standard, with plans to implement NACS compatibility in their respective charging networks.
