The dominoes of NACS adoption are falling quickly, but when it all settles there needs to be more competitors to DCFC than just Tesla. That’s what other charging manufacturers are also adopting the connector.
Today, Electrify America announced that it will be supporting NACS by 2025. Current stations will be retrofitted and new stations will come with the charger integrated. The company still plans on supporting CCS as well, considering so many electric vehicles out there have that type of connector.
“Since our founding, we have focused on building an inclusive and open hyper-fast charging network to facilitate the adoption of electric vehicles,” said Robert Barrosa, president and CEO of Electrify America. “We look forward to continuing to support industry wide standards that increase vehicle interoperability and streamline public charging.”
None of this is a surprise, considering how quickly automakers like Ford and GM are switching to NACS. It is in nobody’s interest to only have one company provide DCFC nationally, so companies like Electrify America will need to adapt to continue to offer service and competition.
Electrify Canada will also be making the switch.
