BNR – Mercedes-Benz said that beginning in 2024, its electric car users would be capable of utilising Tesla’s superchargers. The firm stated that it will completely implement Tesla’s charging technology by 2025.

Mercedes-Benz joins a growing number of car manufacturers who have entered into comparable agreements with Tesla. The Mercedes-Benz agreement puts Tesla one step closer to becoming the electric vehicle (EV) standard.

Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) will be completely integrated into the German prestigious car manufacturer’s electric car fleet. Effective next year, North American drivers will have access to over 12,000 Tesla supercharger stations.

Tesla calls its rapid charging facilities “Superchargers.”

Mercedes will also construct its own charging system, which will be available to a wide selection of EV owners. It intends to build over 2,000 charging stations throughout North America, Europe, and China by the conclusion of the decade. There will be 400 of them in North America.

Highways Without Chargers

Many states in the US are pushing for the use of electric vehicles. However, some experts have brought to light that huge stretches of roadways lack charging infrastructure. As a result, electric vehicles are not a practical alternative for many Americans, and the matter is becoming more pressing. Several states, notably California and New York, have introduced legislation to limit the sale of new gasoline-powered automobiles by 2035.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk urged other EV manufacturers in November to produce vehicles that could utilise Tesla charging stations.

Ford said in May that its vehicles will be able to use Tesla’s widespread EV charging network. Rivian, GM, and now Mercedes have all joined.

“With the development of Mercedes-Benz’s new North American High-Power Charging Network,” said Andrew Cornelia, CEO of Mercedes-Benz HPC North America. “we are ready to redefine the electric vehicle charging experience.”

Mercedes-Benz: First German Automaker to Integrate NACS

Mercedes-Benz claims to be the first German automaker to include NACS ports in its new electric automobiles. It will also provide a plug converter for vehicles equipped with the Combined Charging System (CCS) built before 2025.

CCS chargers are utilised by the majority of other EV manufacturers, including General Motors, Audi, and Rivian. However, Tesla charging stations exceed CCS stations in numbers in the United States.
