More Automakers Join Tesla’s EV Charging Network


Summary: Tesla’s electric-vehicle charging infrastructure gains support from additional automakers, moving closer to becoming the industry standard.

Several automakers have recently signed up to access Tesla’s EV charging network in the United States, bringing them closer to establishing Tesla’s superchargers as the industry standard. Texas has also approved a plan to require EV charging companies to include Tesla’s plug in order to be eligible for federal funds. Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) is considered more widely available and reliable compared to rival charging network CCS, which is backed by companies like Volkswagen and Hyundai. This new wave of support for Tesla’s charging network indicates a growing acknowledgement of its dominance in the EV charging market.
