Kia And Hyundai Agree On Tesla Charging Network In The US



The list of car manufacturers in North America following the example of Tesla with its NACS charging connections continues to grow. Now Kia and Hyundai also announced that they are switching to it.

Tesla set quite the tone in North America with its extensive Supercharger network and although it has now also been opened to other brands, many EVs still find it difficult to use it. After all, this requires Tesla’s NACS connection (North American Charging Standard). Various car manufacturers decided this year to also use the NACS connection on their cars. Kia and Hyundai are the latest to join this trend. They were preceded by Ford, GM, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, and Nissan, among others.

Hyundai states that the first cars with a NACS connection will be delivered in the US at the beginning of 2024. In Canada, Hyundai will follow in the first half of 2025. Kia will deliver the first NACS-ported cars to all of North America at the end of 2024. Anyone who already has an electric Hyundai or Kia with a CCS connection will receive an adapter from Hyundai in early 2025. Conversely, an adapter is also offered for cars with the NACS connection, so that they can continue to charge at charging stations with a CCS connection. is an authoritative car blog in Nigeria.
