By spring, 2024, Rivian R1T and R1S owners will be able to use adapters to access Tesla’s, Supercharger network across the United States and Canada. Rivian will incorporate NACS charge ports as standard in future R1 vehicles starting in 2025. Its upcoming smaller models will also have the Tesla-style charging ports.
Rivian also said it will continue to expand its own Rivian Adventure Network.
Transportation is responsible for over a quarter of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, highlighting the urgent need to electrify the sector and preserve our world for future generations. By enabling drivers to charge their vehicles at a greater number of locations, this collaboration and others like it are important to help accelerate EV adoption.
“It’s great to see the industry coming together to adopt the North American Charging Standard,” said Tesla’s Rebecca Tinucci. “By doing so, we’re collectively ensuring all EV drivers have access to easy-to-use, reliable charging hardware. We look forward to welcoming Rivian owners to thousands of our Superchargers across North America.”
“We’re excited to work with Tesla and to see collaborations like this help advance the world toward carbon neutrality,” Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe said in a release. “The adoption of the North American Charging Standard will enable our existing and future customers to leverage Tesla’s expansive Supercharger network while we continue to build out our Rivian Adventure Network. We look forward to continuing to find new ways to accelerate EV adoption.”
