Volvo Cars To Offer Access to Tesla’s Supercharger Network Across North America

Ground-breaking Partnership Enhances Charging Accessibility for Volvo Electric Vehicle Owners

  • Volvo Cars has teamed up with Tesla, granting its electric vehicle owners access to 12,000 Superchargers across North America.

  • From 2025, Volvo will equip its vehicles with North American Charging Standard ports, enhancing the convenience of electric driving.

Volvo Cars, in a ground-breaking move to improve the electric vehicle ecosystem, has penned an agreement with Tesla to integrate its electric cars with Tesla’s expansive Supercharger network across North America. The partnership is a first for a European automaker, marking a significant advance in Volvo’s ambition to transition fully to electric by 2030.

The deal ensures that both existing and future electric Volvo car owners gain access to 12,000 Tesla Superchargers throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. This arrangement significantly boosts the charging accessibility for Volvo drivers, augmenting the already tens of thousands of fast-charge points available.

Starting 2025, Volvo cars will incorporate the North American Charging Standard (NACS) port, further easing charging logistics for drivers in the region. “We’re taking a major step to remove this threshold for Volvo drivers,” said Jim Rowan, CEO at Volvo Cars, addressing the need for a more convenient charging infrastructure to incentivize electric driving adoption.

Current Volvo electric vehicles, from the XC40 and C40 Recharge to the new EX30 and EX90 models, will be compatible with the Supercharger network via an adapter by the first half of 2024. Volvo will also provide an adapter for future Volvo models with the NACS port, wishing to use the Combined Charging System (CCS) of chargers.

The Volvo Cars app simplifies the charging process further, enabling drivers to locate the multitude of charging stations, ascertain charger availability in real-time, and pay for their charging session seamlessly, enhancing the overall user experience of Volvo’s electric vehicle range.
