Hyundai electric cars will use Tesla Supercharger charging stations

Tesla is the largest investor in electric vehicle infrastructure and the owner of 50,000 Supercharger charging stations that can also be used by other electric cars. After General Motors, Honda, Jaguar, Nissan and Volvo, now owners of Hyundai electric cars that have adopted the NACS charging standards can use these charging stations.

The Hyundai Group also announces that Hyundai, Kia and Genesis electric models will be equipped with NACS connectors that are compatible with Tesla charging stations, and that from 2024 they will be able to charge at them throughout North America.

By the end of next year, the Korean group claims that all models sold in North America will be equipped with NACS connectors. Also, from 2025, all other owners who already have an electric model of one of the Korean brands equipped with a CCS connection, will be able to order a special adapter, so that they can use Tesla chargers.

Tesla is the largest manufacturer of electric cars in the world and recently announced that it produced its 5 millionth car. The growth of production started three years ago when in just 18 months Tesla exceeded the production of two million vehicles, three million in just 11 months, and four million seven months later. All this was achieved thanks to the large capacities of Tesla’s factories, but also to the great demand. At the beginning of July, the company announced that it had built the first Cybertruck in Giga Texas and that it had received more than 1.9 million orders.
