Electrify America has announced plans to add the North American Charging Standard (NACS) connector to its fast-charging networks across the U.S. and Canada (through the Electrify Canada network) as part of its commitment to broadening charging solutions for EV drivers now and in the future.

The charge point operator (CPO) confirmed that it will continue to provide the CCS-1 connector offered at its stations today as it simultaneously transitions to also support automakers adding NACS charging ports to their own vehicles. It is ultimately planning to offer a NACS connector option at its existing and future charging stations by 2025 to add convenience to the overall charging experience.

In adding the NACS connector to its network, Electrify America is working to fulfil its commitment to drive EV adoption as well as its focus on providing all EVs with an ultra-fast charging option. Today, the network provides the CPO’s customers with more than 850 charging stations and around 4,000 individual chargers across the United States and Canada. In both countries, these chargers offer maximum charging capacities of 150 kW and 350 kW.

As the company’s inclusion of the NACS connector continues to evolve, Electrify America will share further updates on its progress, along with its current and future station update plans, over the coming months.
