Stellantis, the parent company of popular car brands including Alfa Romeo, Citroen, Dodge, DS and Fiat, has announced a new era for its electric vehicles. Stellantis announced that it will adopt the Tesla North American Charging Standard (NACS) across its brands.
Stellantis announced it will use Tesla NACS charging
According to the statement from Stellantis; From 2025, certain models of brands will have NACS charging ports. In this way, electric vehicles will benefit from Tesla’s Supercharger network. The company also said that existing electric vehicle owners will give converters for Supercharger.
With Stellantis’ decision, Tesla has seen its proprietary charging standard adopted by all major automakers. Previously, brands such as Ford, GM, Volkswagen and Mercedes had said they would embed NACS in their vehicles.
Tesla first started allowing other automakers to use its charging technology and Supercharger network last year. The move addressed a major concern for drivers considering buying an electric vehicle. Dozens of electric models have started using the fast charging infrastructure.
Stellantis is the last major brand to announce NACS compatibility. This decision also opens the door to universal use of the charging port developed by Tesla.
The company said that electric car drivers currently use more than 134,000 chargers through mobile apps. Stellantis’ sub-brands will be able to benefit from Tesla Supercharger stations starting next year.
