Ford EV Owners Get Email Saying Tesla NACS Adapter Delayed

Nearly one year ago, Ford announced that it had reached a deal with Tesla that would result in its EV owners being able to access the expansive Supercharger network via a special adapter designed to convert the ports on Ford F-150 Lightning and Ford Mustang Mach-E models from the Combined Charging Standard (CCS) to the North American Charging Standard (NACS). Back in early February, Ford CEO Jim Farley revealed that existing owners would be receiving this new complimentary adapter based on VIN via a registration process, and a few weeks later, the NACS adapter was officially revealed. The ordering system for the new part opened up in late February, but now, some owners are receiving emails stating that the adapter has been delayed.

Though some NACS adapters have already shipped to select Mach-E and F-150 Lightning owners, it now seems as if supply chain issues are causing delays in the shipment of additional units. Recently, two Reddit users posted pictures of an email they received informing them that their adapter shipments have been delayed from May to June, in fact, a problem that the automaker blamed solely on supply chain problems.

Meanwhile, 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 30th, 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.

    A2Z adaptor has been shipping for over 6 weeks and works perfectly on Tesla Superchargers V3.

      Maybe, but who’s going to pay that when they’ll get a free one from Ford …even if slightly delayed.

    Hopefully they won’t have to wait as long as those of us for our Blue Cruise 1.4 update. Otherwise they may not be too happy. 1 year and counting
