Nissan to Adopt Tesla Charging Standard for Ariya, Future EVs

Nissan is the first Japanese automaker to announce future product support for NACS, according to the company.  

Nissan has reached an agreement with Tesla to adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) beginning in 2025.

Nissan is the first Japanese automaker to announce future product support for NACS, according to the company.  

From 2024, Nissan will make available a NACS charging adapter for Ariya models that currently are equipped with the Combined Charging System 1 (CCS1) for DC fast charging. This will enable customers to connect their vehicle’s charging port to NACS plugs at compatible chargers.

Starting in 2025, Nissan will begin offering EVs for the U.S. and Canadian markets with a NACS port. This will make charging on the Tesla Supercharger network seamless and convenient for drivers, significantly increasing the number of public fast-charging locations at which Nissan EVs can be charged, the automaker noted.

“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.”

As part of Ambition 2030, Nissan is targeting more than 40% of its U.S. vehicle sales to be fully electric by 2030, with even more to be electrified. This includes two all-new, all-electric vehicles to be assembled at the Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi, beginning in late 2025.

The automaker said it will announce more details on the rollout of Nissan’s NACS compatibility at a later date.
