The Volkswagen Auto Group Will Adopt the NACS

The North American Charging Standard integration will start in 2025


Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, and Scout Motors have collectively announced their decision to integrate the North American Charging Standard (NACS) in their upcoming electric vehicles starting in 2025. The Volkswagen group is the latest automaker to share its plans in adopting Tesla’s charging standard.

 

The implementation of the NACS by these automotive giants aims to unify the charging experience for electric vehicle users across North America, both in the US and Canada. A notable aspect of this initiative is the exploration of adapter solutions by Volkswagen, Porsche, and Audi for their existing vehicles. This approach, slated to commence in 2025, will allow these vehicles to access Tesla’s expansive Supercharger network. Scout Motors, too, is set to grant its customers access to this network upon the release of their vehicles. This collaboration is a significant stride in expanding charging accessibility, potentially unlocking access to over 15,000 Superchargers across North America.

 

Complementing this advancement, Electrify America has announced its intention to incorporate NACS connectors at its charging stations by 2025, while continuing to support the existing Combined Charging System (CCS). This ensures a comprehensive charging network, adding to the existing 3,800 DC fast charging outlets managed by Electrify America and Electrify Canada.

Subaru has reached an agreement with Tesla concerning the NACS standard

Pablo Di Si, President and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, highlighted the significance of this move for EV customers, emphasizing the expanded access to a growing charging network. Similarly, Rebecca Tinucci, Senior Director of Charging at Tesla, noted the shared vision of improving charging experiences, while Timo Resch, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America, reiterated the commitment to customer choice and convenience. Scott Keogh, President and CEO of Scout Motors, underlined the customer-centric approach in integrating NACS connectors into their upcoming vehicles.

 

The joint initiative of Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, and Scout Motors to adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) represents a important development in the electric vehicle sector. Further information regarding the application of this standard in specific models is anticipated as the target year of 2025 draws closer.
