Honda is the most recent manufacturer to adopt Tesla’s EV charging standard

Honda Motor Co. signed an agreement with Tesla to use Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) for the charging port of its EV models, which will be available in North America beginning in 2025. Honda intends to deliver a new EV model in North America with a NACS port in 2025. Honda will continue to use NACS standards for its vehicles from that point forward.EV models that the business plans to ship in North America before 2025 and will include a Combined Charging System (CCS) connection are also being designed to be NACS compatible via the use of a charging converter.

Honda has stated in North America that it has agreed to form a joint venture with seven other manufacturers to construct a high-powered charging network for EVs with the goal of creating a reliable charging infrastructure. In addition to this endeavour, Honda has agreed to use the NACS to allow its customers to access Tesla Supercharger stations, greatly improving charging ease. Honda joins Ford, Toyota, General Motors, Nissan, BMW, Volvo, Rivian, Polestar, Fisker, and Mercedes-Benz in embracing NACS.
