Hyundai and Tesla Forge Charging Network Collaboration

2 min read

In a groundbreaking move for the electric vehicle (EV) industry, Hyundai Motor North America has announced its adoption of the North American Charging Standard (NACS) ports for its EVs in the United States and Canada, starting in Q4 2024 and the first half of 2025, respectively.

The significance of this development lies in the newfound convenience and accessibility for Hyundai EV owners, who will now have access to an extensive network of over 12,000 Tesla Superchargers, covering the United States, Canada, and Mexico. This expansion will essentially double the size of the DC fast charging network available to Hyundai EV customers, marking a substantial stride forward in the EV charging landscape.

Tesla’s dedication to expanding its Supercharger network is in line with its mission to accelerate the global transition to sustainable energy, and welcoming Hyundai as an adopter of the North American Charging Standard furthers this goal. This partnership reflects a growing trend of collaboration and cooperation within the EV industry to enhance charging infrastructure.

Hyundai’s efforts to expand EV charging infrastructure extend beyond this collaboration, as the company is partnering with other leading global automakers to develop a high-powered North American charging network, with the first stations set to open in the U.S. in the summer of 2024.

As the EV charging landscape continues to evolve, this strategic move by Hyundai and its partnership with Tesla present an exciting development. What are your thoughts on this collaborative effort and its potential impact on the future of EV charging? Share your insights and opinions below.
