Rivian Latest To Join Tesla's NACS Charging Standard

Announcement opens Tesla's 12,000 Superchargers to Rivian vehicles starting early 2024.

Rivian has announced that they are joining Tesla's NACS charging standard, giving all existing and new Rivian vehicles access to 12,000 Tesla Supercharger locations. Existing Rivian vehicles will be able to access the network using an adapter, beginning in early 2024. Starting in 2025, Rivian will incorporate the NACS connector into new vehicles. Those new vehicles can maintain access to the CCS charging network using an adapter as well. Rivian says that in total, Rivian owners will soon have access to 25,000 DC Fast charging locations including Tesla Superchargers, Rivian's own Adventure Network, and other DC Fast networks.

No word yet on what the adapters will cost, but we'll keep you updated.

This announcement follows Ford and GM both announcing a switch from the CCS standard to Tesla's NACS port.

Our take

It seems we're witnessing a giant shift toward NACS as the dominant North American standard, with 3 significant American automakers switching to Tesla's standard. Tesla has certainly built out an impressively robust and relatively reliable charging network, and more vehicles having access will make them easier to live with. To us, this seems like a huge win for everyone and makes Rivian vehicles even more enticing than they already were.
