Tesla's NACS may become North America's standard charging system with support from the Texas government
【PhoneAuto News】According to reports, Texas plans to require charging companies to include Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) along with CCS at their charging stations. With national support, Tesla’s NACS is expected to become the standard charging port in North America.
The Texas Department of Transportation explained to Reuters that Tesla’s NACS has received support from Ford, General Motors, and the recent electric vehicle startup, Rivian, and has “changed the requirements for the first phase of the state’s use of federal funds to achieve highway electrification.” Therefore, Texas will require DC fast chargers to support both a CSS and a Tesla NACS connector.
The U.S. Department of Transportation and Energy (Joint Office) has deployed the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) program, which aims to help states and territories quickly establish a national electric vehicle charging network.

The NEVI program determines how the $5 billion in funding provided by President Biden for electric vehicle infrastructure deployment plans will be used. Last year, the Joint Office and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) reviewed the deployment plans for electric vehicle infrastructure in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
The key to developing a national electric vehicle infrastructure network is reliability and a user-friendly experience. The FHWA recognizes the changes in the U.S. electric vehicle infrastructure.
An FHWA spokesperson said, “Our technical experts are actively engaged in discussions with automakers, charger manufacturers, and standard-setting organizations to ensure that federal investments continue to support all drivers in obtaining a reliable, convenient, and user-friendly charging experience.”
President Biden has allocated $7.5 billion for the construction of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in the United States. Initially, Tesla was unlikely to benefit from the $7.5 billion federal fund as its Supercharger network was not compatible with non-Tesla electric vehicles and did not use CCS connectors. However, the electric vehicle charging industry is rapidly evolving, which is advantageous for Tesla’s NACS. In addition, Tesla has already begun opening up its Supercharger network to non-Tesla electric vehicles.
