Ford Motor Company announced that it will allow its electric vehicle customers to access Tesla Superchargers, the largest network of fast-chargers in the U.S. and Canada, starting Spring 2024. This will double the number of fast-chargers available to Ford EV customers, who can already use the BlueOval Charge Network with over 84,000 chargers. Ford EV customers will need a Tesla-developed adapter and software integration to access the Superchargers until 2025, when Ford will offer next-generation EVs with the NACS connector built-in.
The agreement with Tesla Motors is part of Ford’s strategy to grow as an EV brand and to provide charging confidence and convenience for its customers. Tesla Superchargers are located on major routes near amenities and offer fast-charging speeds that can recharge an electric car battery in under an hour. Ford dealers are also adding public-facing fast-chargers and locations to the BlueOval Charge Network by early 2024.
