GM Embraces Tesla’s EV Charging System, Pledges Integration in New EVs Starting in 2025

General Motors (GM) has announced that they will be integrating Tesla’s charging standard in their new electric vehicles starting in 2025. This move will allow drivers of GM’s upcoming EVs to have access to Tesla’s extensive Supercharger network, which currently has over 25,000 charging stations worldwide.

This news comes after GM made the decision to use Tesla’s charging system, joining Ford in leveraging Tesla’s technology. The move was celebrated by Wall Street, with Reuters reporting that the decision was met with cheers from investors. CNBC also reported that GM’s decision to use Tesla’s charging network helped increase their stock price.

In addition to integrating Tesla’s charging standard, GM also announced that they will be adopting Tesla’s NACS (North American Charging System) connector. This means that GM’s new EVs will be able to charge on Tesla’s Supercharger network using the same connector as Tesla vehicles.

Tesla and GM also announced an agreement to expand access to Tesla’s Supercharger network, giving more drivers the ability to charge their EVs on the popular network.

The move by GM to embrace Tesla’s EV charging system shows the growing collaboration within the industry to promote sustainable transportation. In an interview with Electrek.co, GM spokesperson Dan Flores stated that “our focus remains on expanding charging options for current and future EV owners and this collaboration with Tesla will continue to help us achieve that goal.”

Overall, the integration of Tesla’s charging system and connector into GM’s EVs is expected to provide a significant boost to GM’s electric vehicle offerings and promote the adoption of electric vehicles by consumers.
