  • Honda’s North American EV lineup, including Prologue and Acura ZDX, to transition to NACS standard by 2025.
  • Noriya Kaihara, President and CEO of American Honda Motor Co., commented,” is quite significant. We also need to promote NACS. It is obvious.’

In a recent report, Honda officially announced its decision to adopt Tesla’s NACS charging connector for its vehicles in North America. This pivotal development comes as a response to General Motors (GM) embracing the NACS standard, further underlining the shifting landscape of EV charging infrastructure.

As Honda relies on GM’s EV platform for its North American market offerings, aligning with the NACS standard was a logical step. The forthcoming electric models from Honda, the Prologue and Acura ZDX, both leverage GM’s Ultium platform, solidifying the necessity of embracing the standardized charging solution.

Shinji Aoyama, Executive Vice President of Honda Motor Co., stated, “We clearly depend on GM. Once they [switch to NACS], this will follow for ZDX, as well.”

While the transition to the NACS charging standard is slated for 2025, Honda has yet to finalize an agreement with Tesla to access the Supercharger network or the necessary adapters. However, industry experts suggest that the adoption of Tesla’s Supercharger network maintenance model is a key driver for this partnership. Jay Joseph, American Honda’s Vice President of Sustainability and Business Development, praised Tesla’s Supercharger maintenance approach, citing its proactive monitoring, swift repair processes, and robust network upkeep.

Beyond potentially gaining access to the Supercharger network, Honda is also part of a consortium consisting of seven major automakers that unveiled plans to collaborate on establishing a new EV charging network across North America. This consortium aims to accelerate the proliferation of EVs by enhancing the accessibility and convenience of charging infrastructure.

As the automotive industry witnesses a paradigm shift towards electrification, Honda’s strategic alignment with Tesla’s NACS charging standard and its collaboration with GM underscores the urgency and importance of standardized charging solutions to expedite the global EV revolution.
