Hyundai Motor North America announced it is adopting North American Charging Standard (NACS) ports for its electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States and Canada. In the United States, all-new or refreshed Hyundai EVs will come exclusively with a NACS port beginning in Q4 2024. Canada will follow in the first half of 2025.
Hyundai EVs with NACS ports will gain access to more than 12,000 Tesla Superchargers across the United States, Canada and Mexico, the company says. The company notes that this will double the size of the DC fast charging network available to Hyundai EV customers.
Tesla said expanding its network will enhance customer access to out-of-home charging and fully support the ultra-fast charging speeds on Hyundai’s advanced Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) vehicles, including IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6 and the upcoming IONIQ 7.
Hyundai said owners of existing and future Hyundai EVs with the current CCS will have access to the Tesla Supercharging Network starting in Q1 2025. Hyundai will offer an adapter to these customers. Hyundai will also make adapters available to charge NACS-equipped vehicles at CCS chargers.
