Hyundai to access 12000 Tesla chargers through NACS adoption

Collaborating with Tesla marks another milestone in our commitment to delivering exceptional EV experiences to our customers says José Muñoz CEO Hyundai NA

Established in 1967, Hyundai Motor Company is present in over 200 countries with more than 120,000 employees dedicated to tackling real-world mobility challenges around the globe. 

The automotive company is accelerating its transformation into a Smart Mobility Solution Provider through investments in advanced technologies such as robotics and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), based on its foundational message: ‘Progress for Humanity,’. 

In pursuit of a sustainable future, Hyundai is developing zero emission vehicles equipped with industry-leading hydrogen fuel cell and EV technologies including its incredibly unique Hyundai Ioniq 6, one of EV Magazine’s Top 10 longest range electric vehicles. 

Widespread NACS adoption

Hyundai Motor North America is adopting North American Charging Standard (NACS) ports for its EVs in the United States and Canada. 

In the United States, all-new or refreshed Hyundai EVs will come exclusively with a NACS port, beginning in Q4 2024, with Canada following 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, effectively doubling the size of the DC fast charging network available to Hyundai EV customers.

Tesla’s attractive charging infrastructure

Tesla’s commitment to expanding its network will enhance customer access to out-of-home charging and fully support the ultra-fast charging speeds on Hyundai’s advanced Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) vehicles, including IONIQ 5, IONIQ 6 and the upcoming EV models.

“Opening our Supercharging network to additional electric vehicles directly supports our mission to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy,” said Rebecca Tinucci, Senior Director of Charging Infrastructure at Tesla. “We’re proud to welcome Hyundai as the latest adopter of the North American Charging Standard.”

Owners of existing and future Hyundai EVs with the current CCS will have access to the Tesla Supercharging Network starting in Q1 2025. Hyundai will offer an adapter to these customers. Hyundai will also make adapters available to charge NACS-equipped vehicles at CCS chargers.

Expanding access to Tesla’s vast Supercharger network furthers Hyundai’s strategy of ensuring EV drivers have the broadest possible charging infrastructure available. As previously announced, Hyundai is also partnering with six of the world’s leading global automakers to develop a new, high-powered North American charging network with at least 30,000 chargers. The first U.S. stations in this new network are targeted to open in the summer of 2024, and in Canada at a later stage

“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.”
