Ford EV Owners Can Now Order Free Tesla Charging Adapter

In May of last year, The Blue Oval announced that it had reached a deal with Tesla that will provide the owners of Ford EV models with access to that company’s Supercharger network and later, the company also revealed that owners of the Ford F-150 Lightning and Ford Mustang Mach-E would be receiving an adapter designed to enable those models to utilize Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) chargers as well. The adapter will be provided for free for those Ford EV owners, and available via a reservation process. Ford CEO Jim Farley just revealed this new part in its entirety this week, and now, it is officially available to order, too.

F-150 Lightning and Mach-E owners can head to this new site to order their NACS adapter, and it will be available to do precisely that now through June 30, 2024. It will enable them to utilize the Supercharger network before the owners of any other branded EV, in fact, but after the cutoff date, this part will be sold for a retail price of $230. As for Ford Pro commercial customers, they’ll be contacted this spring with instructions on how to order their own adapters, too.

Those that take delivery of this new NACS adapter will also be able to utilize the FordPass app or via their vehicle’s infotainment screen to pay for Supercharger sessions after creating an account and activating the Plug & Charge feature. From there, all they have to do is simply pull in, plug up, and charge, though future Ford EV models will come with NACS ports from the factory, rather than CCS as is currently the case, meaning that they won’t need an adapter.

“Starting today, Ford EV customers will have access to more than 15,000 Tesla Superchargers across the U.S. and Canada, more than doubling fast charging options on the BlueOval Charge Network,” said Ford CEO Jim Farley. “This move will improve the public charging experience by giving our customers even more choice and is a vital part of our growth as an EV brand. I would like to thank Elon and the Tesla team for their close collaboration and Tesla’s leadership to help change the lives of so many EV customers through improved access to charging.”

    How about a reverse adapter for the new 2025 and later EVs to charge from the original SAE J1772 chargers?
