Starting next year, Ford EV buyers will get to use Tesla's 12,000-plus Supercharger in the US and Canada.

Ford has just announced that its future electric cars will get Tesla's NACS charging connector, which means that Ford EVs will be able to use all Tesla Superchargers in the US and Canada without the need for an adapter.

The announcement took place during a live Twitter Spaces event featuring Ford CEO Jim Farley and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Per Farley, it seems as though the future Ford electric vehicles will be equipped with two charging ports. Farley stated that Ford EV owners will still be able to use their Ford chargers, so we take this comment to imply that the vehicles will have two charging ports.

The Tesla NACS standard has been in use in the US and Canada since the launch of the Tesla Model S. The connector works for home charging, as well as for DC fast charging at Tesla Superchargers or at other fast-charging sites with the use of an adapter.

According to Ford, the rollout will go like this:

"Starting early next year Mustang Mach-E, F-150 Lightning and E-Transit customers will be able to access the Superchargers via an adapter."

"In 2025, Ford will offer next-generation electric vehicles with the North American Charging Standard (NACS) connector built-in, eliminating the need for an adapter to access Tesla Superchargers."

This move makes it easier for Ford owners to Supercharge and the reliability of the Tesla Supercharger network is a plus too. Additionally, Ford added this in regard to Tesla's Supercharger network and NACS connector:

“The Tesla Supercharger network has excellent reliability and the NACS plug is smaller and lighter.  Overall, this provides a superior experience for customers.”
