Ford has announced it will be powering up its friendship with Tesla by offering a complimentary Tesla Supercharger adapter to its electric vehicle customers. The announcement, which sparks a new era of connectivity between the automotive giants, was made by Ford President and CEO Jim Farley, as the company gears up to grant its EV drivers access to Tesla’s lightning-fast charging network across the U.S. and Canada starting Spring 2024.
This groundbreaking initiative will enable owners of the electrifying Ford F-150 Lightning and the Mustang Mach-E to plug into Tesla’s V3 and above Superchargers, giving them the power to charge up and hit the road faster than ever. In a move that’s bound to accelerate excitement, Ford has announced it will start transitioning to the North American Charging Standard (NACS) charge port by 2025, ultimately eliminating the need for an adapter and ensuring a smoother, direct connection to Tesla’s vast network of Superchargers.
So, get ready to fasten your seatbelts and prepare for a smoother ride into the future of electric mobility, where Ford and Tesla are charging ahead, together.
