Tesla Owners Can Finally Use Electrify America Chargers by 2025
Volkswagen’s charging network, Electrify America, has made a significant commitment to the North American Charging Standard (NACS) connector, which was initially developed by Tesla and was formerly known as the Tesla charging connector. Electrify America has pledged to adopt the NACS connector by 2025, aiming to enhance accessibility to this widely popular charging standard.
However, for those utilizing Volkswagen’s CCS-1 plug standard, there’s no need for concern. Electrify America assures that the CCS-1 connectors will continue to be available alongside the NACS connectors at their charging stations, with no plans for phasing them out. Electrify Canada, a sister organization, has also committed to adopting the NACS connector by 2025. This decision aligns with Electrify America’s overarching objective to support industry-wide standards and streamline public charging options.
