Lucid Embraces NACS for Enhanced EV Charging Options

Lucid has announced plans to adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) in 2025, enabling Lucid EVs to access Tesla’s Supercharger network and streamline the charging process for customers.


  • Lucid vehicles with the current CCS system will use an adapter to access over 15,000 Tesla Superchargers in 2025.

  • The company will integrate NACS into its new vehicles from 2025 to offer expanded charging solutions.

  • Lucid joins other major automakers in the move to adopt NACS, promoting the standardization of EV charging.


Lucid, a key player in the luxury electric vehicle market, has declared its intention to adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) by the year 2025. This move is designed to grant Lucid vehicle owners the ability to charge their vehicles at Tesla Supercharger stations across North America. With over 15,000 Tesla Superchargers available, this initiative promises to significantly enhance the convenience of charging for Lucid customers.

The integration of NACS will commence with Lucid’s vehicles produced in 2025, marking a pivotal shift from the currently used Combined Charging System (CCS). This is a forward-looking decision, aimed at unifying the charging experience across various electric vehicles. It reflects Lucid’s ongoing commitment to improving the charging infrastructure for its customers, which is a cornerstone of the company’s philosophy to facilitate a smoother transition to sustainable energy.

Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO of Lucid, emphasizes that the adoption of a uniform charging standard is crucial for instilling confidence in consumers considering electric vehicles. He underscores the potential of NACS to contribute to a national network of high-voltage charging stations, which is anticipated to play a vital role in the wider acceptance of electric vehicles.

By aligning with NACS, Lucid aligns itself with other major automotive manufacturers like BMW, General Motors, and Toyota, who have already embraced the standard. This collective move is indicative of the industry’s drive towards standardization, which is expected to lower barriers to EV adoption.

Lucid’s decision to integrate NACS is part of its broader mission to promote sustainable energy through cutting-edge technology and luxury electric vehicles that prioritize the human experience. The company continues to deliver on its promise with its flagship vehicle, the Lucid Air, and its ongoing vehicle deliveries across multiple regions.
