Tesla Allows Other Automakers to Use Its EV Connector Design

Elon Musk Owned Electric Vehicle Company Tesla has started to allow other Automakers to use its EV Connector Design.

In contrast to Combined Charging System (CCS) connectors, the one Tesla is offering is half the size, lightweight, twice as powerful, and has no moving parts.

'Tesla's Supercharging Network has 60 per cent more NACS posts than all the CCS Equipped Networks combined'.

NACS is the common charging standard in the US.

As many network operators currently have plans to integrate NACS at their chargers, Tesla owners can expect charging at other networks without adapters.

“We look forward to future electric vehicles incorporating the NACS design and charging at Tesla North American Supercharging and Destination Charging networks,” Tesla said.

'We are actively working with relevant standards bodies to codify Tesla's charging connector as a public standard.'
