Nissan is the latest electric vehicle manufacturer to adopt Tesla's North American Charging Standard hardware. Just like other manufacturers that have made the switch, Nissan will ship NACS-to-CCS adaptors in 2024, and all electric vehicles from 2025 onwards will have NACS ports built in. Nissan has big plans for its electric future, with 19 new electric models planned between now and 2030.

It appears that the Tesla NACS hype train has snared yet another automobile manufacturer. This time, we are seeing Nissan make the jump from CCS to NACS hardware, much like competitors Ford, GM, and Rivian before it. This makes Nissan the first Japanese car maker to adopt Tesla's NACS hardware.

From 2024, all Nissan Ariya EVs will ship with a CCS-1 to Tesla NACS adaptor so that customers in the US and Canada can make use of Tesla's Supercharger network. Starting in 2025, however, Nissan's electric vehicles will all be equipped with NACS ports from the factory.

"Adopting the NACS standard underlines Nissan’s commitment to making electric mobility even more accessible," - Jérémie Papin, Chairperson, Nissan Americas.

Currently, Nissan reportedly plans to release a total of 19 all-electric vehicles before 2030, including an electric Micra and a third-generation Nissan Leaf. Moving to NACS is an important move for both Nissan and the NACS charging standard, since Nissan somewhat pioneered the affordable electric vehicle when it released the Leaf all those years ago. Its future plans also involve over 40% of its US sales coming from electric vehicles.
