Jaguar is stepping into the future of electric vehicles (EVs) by joining forces with Tesla. The big news? Jaguar’s upcoming electric models, set to hit the roads in 2025, will smoothly connect with Tesla’s widespread Supercharging network in North America.

No more adapters needed – Jaguar spills the beans that these new EVs will feature Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) connector. Translation: hassle-free Supercharging, no adapter required.

But what about the current Jaguar I-Pace drivers? Fear not, as Jaguar plans to hook them up too. They’ll get their hands on NACS adapters from Tesla, making the I-Pace Supercharge-compatible. Expect these adapters to hit the market around 2024, aligning with the shift from CCS1 to NACS in North America.

Jaguar is going all-in on NACS – not just for vehicles but also for home charging units and adapters catering to older models. It’s a comprehensive move reflecting Jaguar Land Rover’s larger Reimagine strategy, steering the Jaguar brand toward an all-electric luxury future.

And this collaboration isn’t just a local affair. It’s part of a grander plan – Jaguar, alongside Tesla, is building a global EV ecosystem as part of their respective strategies.

What’s next? While the focus now is on Jaguar, it’s a safe bet that Land Rover won’t be left out of the NACS charging connector party. When it comes to a shared automotive group, consistency is key.

Joining the ranks of over 10 forward-thinking brands, Jaguar, alongside Ford, General Motors, Rivian, Volvo Cars, Polestar, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Fisker, Honda (with Acura), and of course, Tesla and Aptera, is embracing the NACS charging standard from 2025 onward in North America.

Mark Camilleri, Director of Electrification Services, emphasized the importance of a reliable charging infrastructure. He stated, “While most charging happens at home, our clients want access to fast, reliable, and convenient chargers when away. Tesla’s global charging network delivers just that, and we’re thrilled to partner with them to provide Jaguar clients with this access.”

In a world of evolving EV landscapes, Jaguar is plugging into the future with Tesla, ensuring their drivers a seamless and efficient charging experience.
