Jaguar may have just one all-electric vehicle so far – the I-Pace – but it’s looking to the future for its own future of electric vehicles. The British brand has joined a long list of automakers that will incorporate Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) charge port technology in its EVs; at least, those in North America.
The company signed a deal with Tesla that will see its future EV lineup – which is due to start from 2025 – incorporate the NACS port, rather than the CCS design currently fitted to the I-Pace. For current and future I-Pace owners, Jaguar will source an NACS adapter so they can access Tesla’s Supercharger network.

In Europe, Jaguar will be sticking with CCS for the foreseeable future. So far, the likes of General Motors, Ford, Volvo, Nissan and a host of others have opted to go with the NACS charging architecture in North America, most starting in 2025.
