The EV startup will offer the NACS on its vehicles from 2025.
Fisker joins a few well-known brands.
Tesla introduced this NACS standard a while ago.
Fisker Inc. has just announced that it will be adopting the North American Charging Standard (NACS) for its upcoming EVs. By 2025, Fisker vehicle owners will be able to stop at Tesla charging stations, the American brand’s network which is currently much more extensive than other options available to EV owners.
Fisker vehicles – in addition to the Ocean crossover, the manufacturer is also preparing several new electric models – will therefore be equipped with the NACS port popularized by Tesla vehicles for several years. Consumers who take delivery of their new Fisker vehicle before this date will be able to use an adapter to take advantage of the network of fast charging stations across North America.
And that’s not all, as Fisker will also be offering an adaptor for CCS (Combined Charging System) technology for those wishing to continue with this port for charging their electric vehicle.
Fisker joins a substantial list of automakers who have recently signed an agreement with Tesla to standardize charging options on the continent. Among them, Ford, GM, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Polestar, Rivian and Volvo have already signed up to this movement, which promotes the technology brought to light by Tesla.
For the time being, traditional automakers dare not invest large sums in the charging station network, as the returns on investment are not very high.
