Hyundai Adopts North American Charging Standard | THE SHOPHyundai Motor North America is adopting the North American Charging Standard (NACS) ports for its electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States and Canada, the automaker announced.

In the United States, all-new or refreshed Hyundai EVs will come exclusively with a NACS port, beginning in 2024. Canada will follow in the first half of 2025.

Hyundai EVs with NACS ports will gain access to more than 12,000 Tesla Superchargers across the United States, Canada, and Mexico, the company said, and will double the size of the DC fast charging network available to Hyundai EV customers.

“Our collaboration with Tesla marks another milestone in our commitment to delivering exceptional EV experiences to our customers,” said José Muñoz, president and global COO, Hyundai Motor Company and president and CEO, Hyundai Motor North America. “This new alliance will provide Hyundai EV owners confidence in their ability to conveniently charge their vehicles and complements our joint venture company to create a new, high-powered charging network with at least 30,000 stations across North America.”
