ChargePoint, a provider of networked solutions for charging electric vehicles (EVs), is rolling out North American Charging Standard (NACS) connector support for its AC and DC charging solutions. Cable conversion kits for existing DC fast chargers will be delivered in November.

“With more than 35 million historical ChargePoint sessions initiated by Tesla vehicles, we saw the need to offer native connector solutions for this large portion of the EV market,” said Pasquale Romano, CEO of ChargePoint. “Our support for both installed and new products opens up ChargePoint’s DC chargers to millions of drivers who have not yet had a fast-charging alternative to the Tesla ecosystem and makes their AC charging experience more convenient.”

ChargePoint’s lineup of NACS solutions bolsters the company’s commitment to delivering a seamless charging experience for drivers of all EV makes and models by being the first in the charging industry to ship a native DC connector that is compatible with Tesla vehicles. The lineup offers AC solutions as well, negating the need for a cumbersome adapter to charge.

NACS, Tesla’s proprietary charging system, is quickly becoming the standard for automakers. According to, automakers that have agreed to adopt Tesla’s charging plug include Ford, BMW, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Kia, Nissan, Toyota and more, with others reportedly in talks with Tesla.

SAE International also announced this year that it will standardize the NACS connector across North America, allowing any supplier or manufacturer to use, manufacture or deploy the NACS connector on EVs.

EV charging has faced many issues over the past couple of years and still faces some. However, the process is maturing. The October 2023 issue of NACS Magazine offers more information in “Inside the Current State of EV Charger Maintenance.”
