Ford EV drivers to gain access to Tesla Supercharger network

An adapter will allow Ford F-150 Lightning, Mustang Mach-E and E-Transit vehicles to access Tesla’s V3 Superchargers.

Ford Motor Company has reached an agreement with Tesla Motors to provide Ford electric vehicle customers access to more than 12,000 Tesla Superchargers across the U.S. and Canada, doubling the number of fast chargers available to Ford EV customers starting in spring 2024. A Tesla-developed adapter will provide Ford F-150 Lightning, Mustang Mach-E and E-Transit vehicles fitted with the Combined Charging System (CCS) port access to Tesla’s V3 Superchargers. Ford will equip future EVs with the NACS charge port, removing the need for an adapter for direct access to Tesla Superchargers, starting in 2025.

“This is great news for our customers who will have unprecedented access to the largest network of fast chargers in the U.S. and Canada with 12,000+ Tesla Superchargers plus 10,000+ fast chargers already in the BlueOval Charge Network,” said Jim Farley, Ford president and CEO. “Widespread access to fast-charging is absolutely vital to our growth as an EV brand, and this breakthrough agreement comes as we are ramping up production of our popular Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning, and preparing to launch a series of next-generation EVs starting in 2025.”

The BlueOval Charge Network is already North America’s largest public charging network, Ford says, with over 84,000 chargers including access to over 10,000 public DC fast chargers. Adding more than 12,000 Tesla Superchargers creates the single largest integrated fast-charge network across the U.S. and Canada, Ford says.

Additionally, Ford says its dealers are adding roughly 1,800 public-facing fast chargers and locations to the BlueOval Charge Network by early 2024.
