Honda has reached an agreement with Tesla to adopt Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) for the charging port of its EV models that will go on sale in North America starting from 2025, the manufacturer announced.
In 2025, Honda is planning to launch a new EV model in North America equipped with a NACS port. From that point forward, Honda will continue adopting NACS standards for its models.
EV models the company will launch in North America before 2025, which will be equipped with a Combined Charging System (CCS) port, are also being developed to be compatible with the NACS through the use of a charging adaptor, the company said.
Honda also recently announced that it has agreed to establish a joint venture among seven automakers to build a high-powered charging network for EVs with the aim of building a reliable charging infrastructure.
