Why OEMs Are Moving to Tesla's Charging Standard
Consumers favour Tesla's NACS-based Supercharging network because the company has more DC fast chargers deployed, is ideally situated on popular driving routes, and the NACS plug is more straightforward for consumers to use. With five major automakers already committed to switching from CCS to NACS and SAE now working on standards, the pressure is on for other automakers to switch to Tesla's connector and network. This premium article investigates the NACS connector in detail and outlines the industry developments since NACS adoption has gone mainstream in the US - it's hard to imagine EVs with the CCS port being more than a small fraction of the US auto market in the medium term.
