Japan’s Toyota Motor, the world’s largest automaker, announced it will integrate Tesla’s electric vehicle (EV) charging technology from 2025. This move aligns Toyota with Ford, General Motors, and Nissan, who have already adopted Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS), potentially making Tesla’s Superchargers the industry norm over the rival Combined Charging System (CCS). Toyota will implement NACS ports into selected Toyota and Lexus battery-electric models, including a new SUV produced in Kentucky. For existing Toyota and Lexus owners with CCS, adapters enabling NACS charging will be available from 2025. Tesla’s NACS constitutes roughly 60% of fast chargers in the U.S., according to the Department of Energy. While CCS garners support from manufacturers like Volkswagen, discussions with Tesla about adopting NACS have taken place.
