Volvo has announced they will adopt Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) charge port, gaining access to 12,000 Supercharger stations across North America.

Volvo models will come equipped with NACS ports starting for 2025, though current customers will be able to hook up to the Supercharger grid through use of an adapter, starting in the first half of 2024. In the same vein, future owners who prefer to use stations with the Combined Charging System (CCS) port will still be able to do so after 2025, as Volvo will be providing a suitable adapter.

As expected, drivers will be able to find charging locations through the Volvo Cars app, providing availability information and payment options. The announcement follows the reveal of two new Volvo EVs earlier this year, the compact EX30 and larger EX90 SUVs, and will likely be an important component of their goal to achieve an all-electric model lineup by 2030.

“As part of our journey to becoming fully electric by 2030, we want to make life with an electric car as easy as possible,” said Jim Rowan, CEO at Volvo Cars. “One major inhibitor to more people making the shift to electric driving – a key step in making transportation more sustainable – is access to easy and convenient charging infrastructure. Today, with this agreement, we’re taking a major step to remove this threshold for Volvo drivers in the United States, Canada and Mexico.”

Volvo is the latest of several car companies, including Ford, GM and Rivian, making the switch to Tesla’s charging network, and it seems unlikely to be the last.
