Tesla already opened up its payment system to other manufacturers last year. Unexpectedly, he is the first to pick her up Ford.
Cooperation of car companies Tesla and Ford is surprising and it will be absolutely necessary for Tesla. It proves that Ford has big plans in electromobility and is approaching very wisely, unlike, for example, rival GM.
It’s a win and win for all three parties – companies and customers. This will open the Tesla Supercharger charging network to owners of future Ford electric vehiclesTesla will get new customers and Ford will not have to invest a lot in building its chargers in the BlueOval network.
On the contrary, it is about A major loss for the European CCS standard, which slowly began to catch on in the United States, but now it is clear that it will finally push completely. The American standard will be the Tesla connector, which, after all, was named accordingly North American Charging Standard (NACS).
Already next year Ford will make the Tesla Supercharger network available through a new adapter. Electric vehicle drivers will therefore have access to more than 12,000 Tesla Superchargers in addition to the 10,000 chargers already within the BlueOval network.
From 2025 anyway Ford will begin installing the NACS connector directly on the next generation of its electric vehicles! It is clear that other North American manufacturers will have to quickly join as well.
