Jaguar has signed an agreement with Tesla to provide access to over 12,000 Superchargers for its current and future customers using the North American Charging Standard (NACS) connector.
The agreement is part of the strategy to offer a global ecosystem of electric vehicles that supports Jaguar’s transformation into a fully electric modern luxury brand.
The truth is that the next-generation zero-emission luxury Jaguars, set to launch in 2025, will have full integration of the North American Charging Standard (NACS) without the need for an adapter in the USA, Canada, and Mexico.
The company will also obtain Tesla adapters and support the supply of these to I-PACE drivers once they become available.
As part of JLR’s Reimagine strategy, Jaguar is radically reinventing itself as a fully electric modern luxury brand.
“JLR is committed to helping our customers make the switch to electric vehicles and to our goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2039. This announcement is a significant step as we provide an exceptional charging experience for our Jaguar electric vehicle customers,” said Marcos Camilleri, Director of Electrification Services.
“While most charging is done at home, when our customers are away from home, they want access to fast, reliable, and convenient chargers,” he added.
The Supercharger network in North America is reliable and easy to use, from the charger post to the connector.
Jaguar’s power electronics and internal battery technology have been designed to optimize charging speeds on Superchargers V3 and V4.
“Tesla has built a charging network worldwide, and we are delighted to work with them to provide access to our customers. This agreement will allow Jaguar drivers with NACS-equipped vehicles in the USA, Canada, and Mexico to use Superchargers without an adapter,” Camilleri stated.
Jaguar will transform into a fully electric luxury brand by 2025, with exceptionally expressive vehicles defined by pioneering technologies and visionary design. A copy of nothing.
Jaguar’s current range includes the fully electric high-performance SUV I-PACE, the high-performance SUV F-PACE, the high-performance compact SUV E-PACE, the XE and XF sedans, the XF Sportbrake, and the F-TYPE sports car.
Jaguar is designed and manufactured in the UK and is sold in 117 countries. It is part of the JLR brand house, along with Range Rover, Defender, and Discovery.
