Owners of Ford electric cars will be able to charge at Tesla stations from 2024
May 26 (Reuters) – Ford Motor Co said on Thursday it had reached an agreement with Tesla Inc to give electric vehicle owners access to more than 12,000 Tesla top-ups in North America starting in early 2024.
The combination of competitors makes Ford the first major automaker to adopt Tesla’s proprietary charging standard, giving the company access to the largest network of high-speed electric stations in the US.
The adapter developed by Tesla will allow Ford electric vehicles equipped with a combined charging port to access Tesla V3 superchargers. From 2025, Ford will equip its EVs with Tesla chargers on-line, eliminating the need for an adapter.
