Subaru is reportedly adopting Tesla’s EV charging port as the numbers of holdouts wind down. Subaru has just recently announced that it will be implementing the North American Charging Standard, but however not until the year 2025.
Subaru Is Adopting Tesla’s EV Charging Port
Subaru as you should know is reportedly hopping on the Tesla charging port bandwagon. The automaker has just recently announced that it will be adopting the North American Charging Standard (NACS) for “certain” electric vehicles kicking off in the year 2025.
Subaru has stated that it will also supply NACS charging adapters to customers who own or at least lease an EV with the Combined Charging System (CCS) standard in the year 2025. The firm has been relatively slow in regards to adopting EVs. It only offers the Solterra at the moment, and even that is only as part of its own partnership with Toyota as everything else is gas-powered. Subaru as you should know plans to add to its EV lineup, though, and it already has three vehicles in the works that it’s supposed to reveal by the year 2026.
Other Automakers in the Industry to Support the Port
The reported adoption of the NACS charging port has ramped up significantly after Tesla recently opened up the NACS design in the previous year. Subaru in question joins a long list of other carmakers in adding support for the port, and this is including Toyota, Ford, GM, Rivian, Volvo, Polestar, Nissan, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar Land Rover, Fisker, Hyundai, and even BMW. EV charging as you should know still has plenty of room for improvement here in the United States, and it is still very much unclear as to whether adopting NACS will make things any easier or better.
Other Automakers Still To Support the Port
Subaru also is not the last big name to adopt the standard. We are all still waiting on Volkswagen and Stellantis to follow the same route.
