Polestar Joins Tesla NACS Port Club for Supercharger Access
After Volvo's recent decision to embrace the North American Charging Standard (NACS) port, Polestar has now followed suit with an identical announcement. This move aligns Polestar with other major players in the industry, such as Volvo, Ford, and GM, who have already made similar agreements.
Polestar has confirmed that its electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States and Canada will be able to utilize the Tesla Supercharger network starting from mid-2024, thanks to adapters supplied by Polestar. Additionally, starting in 2025, all new Polestar vehicles will come equipped with the NACS port as a standard feature.
For customers purchasing a Polestar vehicle with the NACS port, the company will include a Combined Charging System (CCS) adapter. This means that owners will have the flexibility to charge their EVs on both the Tesla Supercharger network and the existing network of CCS DC fast chargers.
Given that Volkswagen (VW) and Hyundai are also engaged in discussions with Tesla on this matter, it is anticipated that more NACS-related announcements will surface in the coming days and weeks. For instance, Rivian has recently revealed its plans to adopt NACS as well.
