Mazda Embraces Tesla’s Charging Port For Upcoming EVs

Mazda no longer offers an electric vehicle in the United States, following the death of the MX-30, but that hasn’t stopped the company from announcing plans to embrace the North American Charging Standard (NACS).

While the automaker wasn’t ready to talk specifics, they confirmed electric vehicles launched in North America from 2025 will have the Tesla designed charging port. Mazda said the move will give customers a “broader range of charging options” as well as “greater charging convenience through access to more than 15,000 Tesla Superchargers across North America.”

Mazda hasn’t said much about their upcoming EVs, but previous reports have suggested they’ll be made in Japan and exported to the United States. This will impact their eligibility for incentives, but it shouldn’t be a deal breaker as long as the leasing loophole isn’t closed.

 Mazda Embraces Tesla’s Charging Port For Upcoming EVs

Reports out of Japan have suggested Mazda’s upcoming electric vehicles will be based on existing platforms that underpin ICE-powered models. It’s also believed the company is focusing on electric crossovers as they have the broadest appeal.

Getting back to the NACS, Mazda was one of the few remaining holdouts, although they didn’t attract much attention due to the lack of an electric vehicle. With them joining the likes of BMW, Ford, General Motors, and the Volkswagen Group, Stellantis must be feeling pretty lonely. However, given the dramatic shift over the past year, it’s hard not to imagine them embracing the standard relatively soon.
