Nissan has reached an agreement with Tesla to adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) beginning in 2025, becoming the first Japanese automaker to do so.
This will be the third fast charging standard for Nissan, which used the CHAdeMO standard before switching to CCS in 2020.
From 2024, Nissan will make available a NACS charging adapter for Ariya models, which are currently equipped with CCS1. Starting in 2025, Nissan will begin offering EVs with a NACS port in the US and Canadian markets.
“Adopting the NACS standard underlines Nissan’s commitment to making electric mobility even more accessible as we follow our Ambition 2030 long-term vision of greater electrification,” said Jérémie Papin, Chairperson, Nissan Americas. “We are happy to provide access to thousands more fast chargers for Nissan EV drivers, adding confidence and convenience when planning long-distance journeys.”
