Lucid is the latest automaker to announce they will adopt Tesla's NACS connector in the U.S. and Canada starting in 2025. This means all Lucid vehicles will have access to over 12,000 Tesla Supercharger locations.
Currently, Lucid uses the CCS charge port. Vehicles with this connector will be able to access Tesla Superchargers using an adapter starting in 2025.
“Adopting NACS is an important next step to providing our customers with expanded access to reliable and convenient charging solutions for their Lucid vehicles,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO at Lucid. “We believe that a unified charging standard, backed by the nationwide rollout of future-ready higher-voltage charging stations, will be a critical step in empowering American consumers to adopt electric vehicles.”
The automakers that have now adopted Tesla's North American Charging Standard now include:
It's worth noting that non-Tesla vehicles adopting the NACS connector will have access to many - but not all - Tesla Superchargers. These vehicles will be compatible with "V3" and up Supercharger units, of which there are over 12,000. How can you tell which Tesla Superchargers are V3 or higher? You can use an app like PlugShare to filter by the speed of the charger. If the Tesla Supercharger is a 250kW speed or higher, it will eventually be compatible with the cars above.
