Jaguar announced today that it is the latest brand to reach an agreement with Tesla, providing customers access to Tesla’s Supercharger network and incorporating the North American Charging Standard into future electric vehicles. It will also source adapters from Tesla for its existing EVs.
“[Jaguar Land Rover] is dedicated to helping our clients make the switch to electric vehicles and to our commitment to net-zero carbon emissions by 2039,” Mark Camilleri, JLR director of electrification services, said in a statement. “Today’s announcement is an important step as we deliver an outstanding charging experience for our all-electric Jaguar clients. Whilst most charging takes place at home, when away from home, our clients want access to fast, reliable and convenient chargers.
“Tesla has created a charging network across the globe that delivers this, and we are delighted to be working with them to provide access for Jaguar clients. This agreement will enable Jaguar drivers with NACS-equipped vehicles in the U.S., Canada and Mexico to use Superchargers without an adapter.”
Jaguar says that EVs sold in North America beginning in 2025 will be built with a NACS plug; what those EVs will look like is unclear, however, as it has reportedly said it will discontinue the I-Pace (and its entire gas-powered lineup) ahead of a brand relaunch that year. The brand’s home chargers will also have a NACS plug.
For existing I-Pace owners, Jaguar says it will “source and supply adapters from Tesla for I-Pace drivers once available,” but there’s no word yet on when that might be.
