Today, Jaguar, part of the JLR house of brands, announced they have signed an agreement with Tesla to provide drivers of its next-generation electric vehicles with access to Tesla’s extensive Supercharger network in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The new partnership will provide access to 12,000+ Superchargers for Jaguar’s current and future customers using the North American Charging Standard (NACS) connector without the need for an adapter.
All new Jaguars sold in the region from 2025 will also source adapters from Tesla and support the supply of these to I-PACE drivers, once available. As part of JLR’s Reimagine strategy, Jaguar is being radically reimagined as an all-electric modern luxury brand and this agreement is part of the strategy to create a global EV ecosystem to support Jaguar clients.
The Supercharger network in North America is reliable and easy to use, from the charger post to the connector. The Jaguar in-house battery and power electronics technology has been designed to optimize charging rates on both V3 and V4 Superchargers. Jaguar drivers can enjoy peace of mind in knowing their vehicle will perform at maximum charging power for whichever Supercharger type they choose.
Mark Camilleri, Director Electrification Services, JLR, said: “JLR is dedicated to helping our clients make the switch to electric vehicles and to our commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2039. Today’s announcement is an important step as we deliver an outstanding charging experience for our all-electric Jaguar clients. Whilst most charging takes place at home, when away from home, our clients want access to fast, reliable and convenient chargers.
“Tesla has created a charging network across the globe that delivers this, and we are delighted to be working with them to provide access for Jaguar clients. This agreement will enable Jaguar drivers with NACS-equipped vehicles in the USA, Canada and Mexico to use Superchargers without an adapter.”
