BMW North America Partners with Tesla Supercharger Network and Adopts NACS

BMW of North America integrates with the Tesla Supercharger network to offer enhanced charging options for its electric vehicle drivers in the U.S. and Canada from 2025.

  • BMW, MINI, and Rolls-Royce Electric Vehicle drivers in the U.S. and Canada will access designated Tesla Superchargers from 2025.

  • This collaboration is distinct from BMW’s recent commitment to develop a new charging network in North America alongside six other automakers.


BMW of North America and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars NA have recently announced a new collaboration with the Tesla Supercharger network. Beginning in early 2025, drivers of BMW, MINI, and Rolls-Royce electric vehicles equipped with the Combined Charging System (CCS) in the U.S. and Canada will have the ability to charge their vehicles at specified Tesla Supercharger stations. This move is part of BMW’s dedicated strategy to ensure their EV drivers have increased access to rapid and dependable charging solutions.

Sebastian Mackensen, the President & CEO of BMW of North America, emphasized the brand’s commitment to electrification and ensuring that their growing range of electric vehicles has ample charging support. He mentioned, “With a growing portfolio of electric BMW, MINI, and Rolls-Royce models in the U.S., our main focus is to guarantee our drivers have convenient access to fast, reliable charging.” Furthermore, BMW, MINI, and Rolls-Royce drivers will be able to locate available Superchargers through their vehicle’s display and manage payments via their specific brand’s application.

Lastly, by 2025, the BMW Group will adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) for its electric vehicles in both countries. It’s also worth noting that this partnership operates independently of BMW North America’s recent pledge to join forces with six other car manufacturers in launching a comprehensive electric vehicle charging network in North America. This new venture aims to set up a minimum of 30,000 chargers across urban areas and major highways, accessible to all EV drivers complying with the CCS or NACS charging protocols.
