- BMW North America embraces NACS, opening Tesla Superchargers for BMW, MINI, and Rolls-Royce drivers in the U.S. and Canada.
- The list of major manufacturers embracing NACS is slowly growing, making it the obvious choice for all OEMs.
BMW of North America announce their adoption of NACS to broaden charging options for customers in the U.S. and Canada
The BMW Group is set to adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) for its electric vehicles (EVs) in the U.S. and Canada, commencing in 2025. That means drivers of BMW, MINI, and Rolls-Royce Electric Vehicles will gain access to designated Tesla Supercharger Stations. The partnership aims to deliver a seamless experience for customers. They’ll be able to effortlessly locate and use Superchargers through their vehicle’s display and complete transactions using brand-specific apps.
This decision is independent from BMW’s recent commitment with six other automakers to establish a joint venture company. That joint venture will construct over 30,000 new chargers accessible to all EVs, regardless of the automaker. With these initiatives, BMW is taking proactive steps toward revolutionizing the EV landscape. Through the adoption of NACS, they’re ensuring convenient and widespread charging infrastructure for EV drivers across North America.
Sebastian Mackensen, President & CEO, BMW of North America, said:
“With six fully electric BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce models now available in the U.S. market, and more to come, it is our top priority to ensure that our drivers have easy access to reliable, fast charging. This agreement is the latest in our longstanding and continued effort to expand charging options for our customers as we continue on the road to electrification.”
