The deal gives electric vehicle customers access to 12,000+ Tesla Superchargers in North America.
Jaguar is making electrifying strides in its all-electric journey, especially with its recent announcement of a landmark agreement with Tesla. The storied British automaker has forged a deal that will allow its electric vehicle customers in North America to access Tesla’s vast Supercharger network. Comprising over 12,000 Superchargers, this network is a critical piece in the EV landscape, offering fast and reliable charging options for Tesla drivers. Now, Jaguar plans to extend these benefits to its own customers, starting with its next generation of luxury electric vehicles set to launch in 2025.
The collaboration between Jaguar and Tesla isn’t just a milestone for the two companies but also for the electric vehicle industry as a whole. Jaguar’s next-gen luxury electric cars, earmarked for a 2025 launch, will come with a North American Charging Standard (NACS) connector, removing the need for any extra adapters in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. This seamless integration makes it more convenient than ever for Jaguar drivers to drive long distances with efficiency and confidence.
Jaguar isn’t stopping at vehicles alone. The company also plans to adopt the NACS connector in home charging stations. It will additionally source and supply Tesla-manufactured adapters for its I-PACE drivers, further solidifying the company’s commitment to customer convenience and a smooth transition to an all-electric future.
This groundbreaking agreement is a crucial part of Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) Reimagine strategy, which aims to turn Jaguar into an all-electric modern luxury brand. The brand is investing heavily in creating a global EV ecosystem that supports the needs of its discerning clients. With an extensive, reliable Supercharger network at their disposal, Jaguar customers can now enjoy the same peace of mind that Tesla drivers have long appreciated. What’s more, Jaguar’s in-house battery and power electronics technology have been optimized to work with both Tesla’s V3 and V4 Superchargers, ensuring maximum charging power regardless of the Supercharger type.
Mark Camilleri, Director Electrification Services at JLR, summed up the significance of the partnership: “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.” Clearly, Jaguar and Tesla share a common vision of accelerating the shift to sustainable transportation, and this agreement marks an exciting chapter in that journey. By partnering with Tesla to offer a robust charging solution, Jaguar is not only enhancing its brand appeal but also facilitating a faster, more convenient adoption of electric vehicles across North America.
