General Motors will change to Tesla’s charging standard in 2024

Tesla and General Motors are collaborating to allow GM electric vehicles to use Tesla’s extensive Supercharger network beginning in 2024. GM is in a unique position to name Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) the best charging infrastructure on the continent because it is the largest automobile manufacturer in the United States.

The Combined Charging System (CCS) has been used by General Motors and its BEVs. The charging standard is still used by top global brands like BMW, Honda, and Volkswagen in their automobiles.

The fact that GM CEO Mary Barra announced the plan last week on Elon Musk’s Twitter account suggests that the transition is proceeding at full speed. Barra stated that GM has adopted Tesla’s connector technology and its vehicles have access to more than 12,000 chargers.

Additionally, GM says it will begin building NACS technology into its vehicles in 2025. In the interim, the company will grant current GM EV owners in the United States access to NACS charger adapters.

In May, Ford went with a comparable decision to leave CCS and change to NACS when one year from now. On Tesla’s website, 12 CCS-compatible Superchargers are available in New Zealand. However, there’s no word on whether more chargers will be coming up for the country at any point in the near future.
