Starting from 2024, owners of Mercedes Benz electric vehicles will be able to use Tesla’s supercharger network, marking a forward step towards broader access and convenience for EV drivers. This move aligns with other major automakers, including Rivian, General Motors, and Ford, who have previously struck similar deals with Tesla.
Mercedes revealed its plans to integrate Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) into its electric vehicle lineup by 2025. In addition to the 12,000 Tesla supercharger stations becoming accessible to North American Mercedes drivers next year, the German automaker is also embarking on the creation of its own network.
According to reports, Mercedes Benz aims to set up 2,000 supercharging hubs globally by the end of 2030, with North America expected to have 400 of them.
