Toyota Embraces North American Charging Standard to Broaden Charging Options for Customers

Toyota and Lexus EV drivers will get NACS hardware from 2025.

Toyota has joined the growing number of automakers in declaring that it too will adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS). The transition to the NACS framework will commence in 2025 and will be offered to Toyota and Lexus battery electric vehicle (BEV) owners.

BMW North America Partners with Tesla Supercharger Network and Adopts NACS

Tesla’s Supercharger Network, all current 12,000 of them, is what everyone is after. Offering Toyota and Lexus customers access to these chargers substantially decrease range anxiety and increase charging and travel options.


Compatibility With Upcoming Models

Toyota has laid out plans to integrate NACS-compliant ports into select Toyota and Lexus BEVs starting 2025. Among these vehicles will be the forthcoming three-row, battery-electric Toyota SUV, which is slated to be manufactured at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky (TMMK).


Expanded Charging Options Through Dedicated Apps

The transition to NACS is a part of Toyota’s overarching strategy to simplify and enhance the charging experience, either at home or on-the-go. Presently, through the Toyota and Lexus mobile applications, customers can locate and access over 84,000 charging points in North America. This includes both level 2 and DC fast chargers. With the adoption of the NACS standard, the number of accessible DC fast chargers will significantly increase.


Adapter for Existing Charging Systems

Customers who already own or lease Toyota and Lexus vehicles equipped with the Combined Charging System (CCS) won’t be left out. They will be given the option of an adapter to facilitate NACS-based charging, aligning with the new standard, and extending its benefits to a wider customer base starting 2025.
