What is the North American Charging Standard (NACS)?

The NACS is a charging system that is being adopted across North America. NACS chargers are available for both public charging and home use.

NACS is also referred to as SAE J3400.

Why do I need an adapter?

Due to the difference between the NACS plug design and the charge port on your vehicle, adapters are required for your Ford electric vehicle to use NACS chargers, including over 15,300 upgraded Tesla Superchargers.

  • The Fast Charging Adapter available from Ford is compatible with DC Fast Chargers, such as Tesla Superchargers. 
  • A different adapter is required to charge at Level 1 and Level 2 AC NACS chargers. Adapters to use at Level 1 or Level 2 NACS chargers are available from third-party sellers.

WARNING: To avoid the risk of serious injury and property damage, only use NACS DC adapters sold or provided by Ford or Tesla for use at Tesla Superchargers. Tesla prohibits the use of any other adapter with Tesla charging stations.

WARNING: Do not attempt to use NACS AC adapters with NACS DC Fast Chargers. Failure to follow these instructions may result in vehicle damage not covered by the vehicle warranty.

Important: 

  • Ford does not guarantee compatibility with aftermarket charging adapters.

Can I use my Fast Charging Adapter at Tesla Destination Chargers or at Home with a NACS Charger?

I have a Ford Plug-In Hybrid or Ford Focus Electric. Can my vehicle use the Fast Charging Adapter to charge at Tesla Superchargers?
