Automaker US Charging Network Partnerships

Leading US charging networks such as Electrify America, EVgo, and ChargePoint have for several years established partnership arrangements with automakers for more convenient access to their charging networks. These partnership arrangements may provide: 

  • Free access to DC fast chargers for a limited time period or amount of kWh charger
  • Integration into automakers’ mobile apps, in-car navigation, and own branded charging network, such as Ford’s BlueOval Charge Network

In early 2023, Tesla began opening up its Supercharger network at a limited number of sites providing non-Tesla drivers access via the Tesla mobile app the Magic Dock CCS connector. Tesla also sought automakers to adopt the Tesla North American Charging Standard (NACS) connector. As of July 2, 2023 several automakers, including Ford, GM, Rivian, Volvo, and Polestar have announced they would be using the NACS port in new electric vehicles in 2025. (Check out our NACS Adoption Tracker for the entire list of companies adopting NACS.)

Below is a table of the known charging network and automaker partnerships as of July 2, 2023. (Note: This table does not include partnerships between charging networks or charging hardware companies and auto dealers or other arrangements.)
