Stellantis to Begin Using Tesla's EV Ports in 2025, Cementing it as Industry Standard

Feb. 15, 2024
Most automakers have slowly joined Ford and GM in implementing NACS, with Stellantis being the final one to climb aboard.

Stellantis will be implementing Tesla’s North American Charging System (NACS) charging plug in all of its electric vehicles beginning in 2025, making it the final major automaker to make the move, reports Kelley Blue Book.

The most commonly used charging port other than NACS is the Combined Charging System (CCS), but the disparity between the number of functional charging stations compatible with CSS compared with Tesla’s coverage of chargers made auto manufacturers consider teaming up with the EV pioneer.

It began with Ford, who reached an agreement with Tesla allowing them to use NACS ports on their own EVs. They were shortly followed by General Motors, and soon thereafter NACS was endorsed by SAE (formerly known as the Society of Automotive Engineers) to be made an industry standard.

Most automakers have slowly joined Ford and GM in implementing NACS, with Stellantis being the final one to climb aboard. Now, nearly every EV manufactured from 2025 onward will be equipped with NACS charging ports.
