Which Automakers are Shifting to the Tesla-Based NACS Charge Port?
In recent news, two major automakers have made an announcement regarding a shift to the Tesla-based NACS charge port. BMW, Mini, and Rolls-Royce EVs will soon have access to Tesla Supercharger stations using an adapter starting in early 2025. These brands will also adopt the NACS port as their native charging technology for the US and Canada. Alongside them, Toyota and Lexus have also confirmed that they will start using the Tesla-based NACS charge port on their EVs starting in 2025. This will allow access to the Tesla Supercharger network through an adapter for CCS EVs.
Additionally, the 2024 Nissan Leaf has become eligible for the US EV tax credit, although at a reduced amount of $3,750 instead of the full $7,500. The Leaf and its battery are built in the US, making it eligible for the tax credit. Another noteworthy development is the delay in scaled-up production of the Chevrolet Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV by GM. The production has been pushed back by a year, with the Orion Assembly plant not receiving an extension to build more Chevy Bolt EVs.
Furthermore, the 2024 Lexus TX 550h+ plug-in hybrid has been acclaimed as the best version of the new three-row SUV lineup. It offers up to 33 electric miles and nearly 30 mpg as a hybrid, along with spacious passenger and cargo areas.
In other news, the Kia EV6 Long Range has received a price cut for 2024, making it more affordable. The introduction of a new Light Long Range version drops the base price of the EV6 with a larger pack to $45,950. Kia has also confirmed that both the base Light versions will be available in all 50 states.
These recent developments in the EV industry showcase the evolving landscape as automakers embrace new technologies and explore partnerships to expand their electric vehicle offerings.
