Stellantis Brands Will Adopt NACS Connector In 2025

Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, Jeep, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, and Maserati vehicles will adopt Tesla's connector, but there is no mention of Supercharger access.

Stellantis has announced that they will adopt the "SAE J3400" connector, otherwise known as NACS, otherwise known as the Tesla connector, starting in 2025. That means Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, Jeep, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Maserati vehicles sold in North America will come with the Tesla-developed connector.

Stellantis was the last meaningful holdout on switching to NACS, with all other major automakers making the switch in 2025. With Stellantis' commitment, it's safe to say that North America will now have a unified standard charging plug for all EVs starting in 2025 - huzzah! The NACS connector has won, and CCS - the connector that dominated non-Tesla vehicles just one year ago - will likely begin to fade.

But before you get excited about the prospect of charging a Jeep at one of Tesla's 12,000+ V3 and up Supercharger stations, the Stellantis announcement makes no mention of Tesla network access. Instead, they plug (pun intended) a charging network that they're co-developing with six other automakers, called IONNA. This is a much different tone from every other automaker's announcement of NACS adoption, who were more than happy to let their customers know that they'd have access to Tesla's Supercharger stations beginning in 2025.

So it seems Stellantis, curiously, may still be a holdout on Tesla access, however the adoption of the NACS connector does leave us wondering if there's more to come.
