The Combined Charging System (CCS), the so-called preferred charging port among European and American automakers, has long been the elephant in the room. The vast majority of those in the EV industry admit to CCS’s poor, clunky design and performance, yet we’ve begrudgingly accepted it as the “standard” since its introduction over a decade ago.

Tesla’s charging port predates CCS, and the company renamed it the North American Charging Standard (NACS) in 2022 to send a very clear message: its design is superior to CCS, and the industry should move to adopt it as the preferred standard. And they’re right. NACS has no moving parts, is half the size and more powerful than CCS, and ultimately provides a far better charging experience for drivers. What’s not to like?

In recent weeks, major automakers have finally begun to see the light. Ford announced its next generation of EVs will include the NACS port, allowing owners of Ford vehicles to seamlessly charge at Tesla Superchargers – no adapter needed. Just two weeks later, GM followed suit, with plans to begin installing NACS in its EVs starting in 2025.

At EverCharge, we’re committed to removing barriers to EV adoption by building the essential infrastructure that enables convenient and accessible charging experiences for our drivers. We’re in full support of these recent moves by Ford and GM – and we’re proud to be a provider of charging solutions that support all vehicles, both NACS and CCS. Upon request, we’re ready to provide NACS connectors for our DC fast charging products – allowing our partners to install future-proof charging hardware that meet the needs of current and future EV drivers.
