Nissan is the first Japanese automaker to switch to the Tesla connector

2025 will be a groundbreaking year for a significant portion of electric vehicles in America, and Nissan is now joining this movement. As many may suspect, starting from this year, a large number of car manufacturers will transition to a unified charging standard for North America, pioneered by Tesla.

The list of “supporters” of the Tesla connector is growing once again, with Nissan becoming the first Japanese automaker to embrace this trend. 

As the manufacturer currently offers only one fully electric model, the adaptation to the new connector is relatively straightforward for them. Beginning next year, Nissan will provide an adapter for its customers with the electric model Ariya, and a year later, the vehicle will be fully integrated with the Tesla connector. This move will grant drivers access to the widely spread and high-quality Tesla Supercharger network.

Jérémie Papin, the Vice President of the company and Chairman of the American market, emphasizes that this step not only simplifies customers’ access to charging stations but also marks an important milestone in making electromobility more accessible to the general public. Nissan is now added to the already impressive and prestigious list of names endorsing Tesla’s charging standard. Among them are Ford, General Motors, Rivian, and the latest addition, Mercedes-Benz.

Nissan is preparing a new American technology center

Tesla would likely appreciate more vehicle manufacturers supporting its connector. Other charging station providers are naturally joining the same wave, too. Leading companies like Blink and Electrify America have announced their support for this connector, further facilitating access to electric energy. This news comes as a significant boost for Tesla, solidifying its position and impact on the electric transportation segment.

Currently, Nissan is preparing its American factory in Canton, Mississippi, to become its American headquarters. In addition to manufacturing vehicles, the facility will host a new technological and development center in the coming years. By the end of 2025, two more electric models are expected to roll off the local production lines. First, an electric sedan, followed shortly by larger crossovers.
