Mazda to adopt NACS for North American BEVs from 2025

Mazda Motor Corporation reached an agreement with Tesla to adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) for charging ports on the company’s Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) launched in North America from 2025 onward.

Mazda will drive adoption of NACS to provide customers with a broader range of charging options. This addition will provide Mazda BEV customers with greater charging convenience through access to more than 15,000 Tesla Superchargers across North America.

Currently, Mazda’s sole plug-in offering in the US is the CX-90 PHEV; Mazda discontinued the MX-30 BEV for the US market following the 2023 model year. The company is planning to introduce a series of BEVS over the next few years.



Nit pick: Mazda signed an agreement to access Tesla's charging network. They don't have to agree with Tesla to adopt the NACS connector/port, because that's an SAE standard.

Are there any brands left that haven't announced NACS-compliance in North America? VW and Hyundai/Kia signed-on last month, when the final spec was published by the SAE. I guess they wanted to be sure that it actually supports 800V.
