Details About Complimentary Ford EV Tesla Adapter Revealed

Back in May 2023, FoMoCo announced that it had reached a deal with Tesla that will provide Ford EV owners with access to that company’s expansive Supercharger network – effectively expanding its available infrastructure significantly in a short time. The Blue Oval also announced that owners of the Ford F-150 Lightning and Ford Mustang Mach-E would be receiving an adapter designed to enable those models – which come equipped with Combined Charging System (CCS) plugs – to utilize Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) chargers, too. Yesterday, CEO Jim Farley revealed that this Ford EV Tesla adapter would be sent free of charge to F-150 Lightning and Mach-E customers soon, and now, he has shed a little more light on that same part.

According to Farley, Ford EV Tesla adapter eligibility for existing Mach-E and F-150 Lightning customers will be determined by VIN, with each of those customers receiving one adapter. Those customers will apparently secure their adapter via a reservation process, though the part will be free – Ford is even covering shipping costs – though other details, including how this process will work, the tech specs of the adapter, and when it will begin shipping haven’t yet been revealed. Currently, Ford EV owners are expected to gain access to the Supercharger network this coming spring.

As Ford Authority previously reported, second-generation Ford EV models due to arrive starting in 2025 will come equipped with NACS ports from the factory, meaning that no adapter will be required to charge them at a Supercharger. Regardless, SAE International is working to standardize NACS, and since Ford’s decision to go that route, essentially every other automaker has followed suit.

We’ll have more on this new adapter soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for 24/7 Ford news coverage.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    That is actually fantastic news Ford. So glad you are coming through for your EV customers. Now if you can get you EV’s back into production because of cratering battery costs you might be OK.

    It would be nice if Ford posted this info on the webpage.
