BMW Joins In Starting in 2025, the Brand will Adopt NACS Standard Charging Interface in US

【PhoneAuto News】In the rapidly growing electric vehicle market, a unified charging interface has become an important issue within the industry. Recently, according to PhoneAuto, BMW announced that starting in 2025, their electric vehicles sold in the United States and Canada will adopt the Tesla North American Charging Standard (NACS) interface. This decision marks BMW joining the ranks of supporting a unified charging interface.

According to reports, since May of this year, 12 major electric vehicle brands have expressed their intention to switch to Tesla’s charging interface. These brands include Ford, General Motors, Rivian, Volvo, Polestar, Mercedes, Nissan, Honda, Jaguar, as well as the Korean brands Hyundai, Genesis, and Kia. This trend indicates that more and more automakers recognize the importance of a unified charging interface, which not only improves user convenience, but also promotes the development of the electric vehicle market.

According to statistics from the U.S. Department of Energy, there are an estimated 31,255 public fast-charging stations in the United States, with the majority owned by a few brands such as ChargePoint, Blink, Electrify America, and EVgo. Some of these brands have committed to building fast-charging stations with Tesla ports. With more automakers adopting Tesla’s charging interface, consumers will be able to use the same charging equipment in a wider range, thereby improving charging convenience.

However, some automakers may be concerned that adopting Tesla’s charging interface may have an impact on their own brand. In addition, for automakers who have already established their own charging networks, changing the charging interface may require a significant amount of resources.
