Tesla Supercharger

After the company makes the switch from CCS to NACS with cars in 2025, clients that have a vehicle with a CCS will still have the ability to utilize Tesla's Superchargers with an adapter supplied by Volvo. The company did not say if this adapter will be totally free or if it is something consumers need to purchase, what the expense will be.

Jim Rowan, CEO of Volvo Cars, said in a statement that adopting Tesla's charging standard is a crucial part of the business's goal to end up being totally electric by 2030.

" As part of our journey to becoming totally electric by 2030, we want to make life with an electrical vehicle as easy as possible. One major inhibitor to more individuals making the shift to electric driving-- a key action in making transportation more sustainable-- is access to easy and practical charging facilities. Today, with this contract, we're taking a significant action to eliminate this threshold for Volvo chauffeurs in the United States, Canada and Mexico."

Volvo is the latest automaker to reveal the adoption of NACS. In the last month, both Rivian and GM likewise announced deals with Tesla to adopt the NACS charging adapter and gain access to the Supercharger network. Any automaker not embracing the standard is likely going to have a tough time explaining it to their consumers in a couple of years.
