Ford EV Tesla Charging Adapter Still Facing Delays

As Ford Authority reported back in late April, some Ford F-150 Lightning and Ford Mustang Mach-E owners have been facing delays in receiving their complimentary Tesla charging adapter, which enables Ford EV owners with the Combined Charging Standard (CCS) plug to utilize the Tesla Supercharger network and its North American Charging Standard (NACS) chargers. At that time, FoMoCo blamed supply chain issues for this delay, and now, it seems as if Ford EV owners are still facing delays for the very same reason.

“The supply is constrained,” Ford spokesman Marty Gunsberg told the Detroit Free Press. “Sales are up and customers continue to reserve their complimentary adapter. We keep getting reservations. We’re not overwhelmed. This is what we anticipated. While we’re shipping weekly, reservations continue to come in. We appreciate our customers’ patience as we work on getting their fast-charging adapter to them.”

Gunsberg stopped short of naming which specific company might be causing this delay, only saying “we aren’t providing details on which supplier is constrained.” While select Mach-E and F-150 Lightning owners have in fact received these adapters over the past few months, others have gotten emails informing them that their shipments have been delayed by, in some cases, several weeks.

In the meantime, 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, 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.

    Why isn’t Ford supplying these adapters to their PHEV customers – especially for luxury PHEVs like the Lincoln Corsair GT (PHEV)?

      The Tesla Superchargers are Level 3 DC. The Lincoln can not use them, as they are only Level 2 capable.
