Stellantis brands have at last embraced Tesla’s NACS charger.

Stellantis has ownership of popular automotive brands such as Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo and has revealed plans to integrate ports for battery-electric vehicle (BEV) offerings. The company’s Senior Vice President of Global Energy and Charging, Ricardo Stamatti, expressed enthusiasm for adopting the SAE J3400 connector, marking a significant stride towards more accessible and seamless charging solutions for customers.

Stellantis’ strategic plan, “Dare Forward 2030”, prioritizes customer-centric open interoperability and mobility freedom. Moreover, Stellantis and its partners are poised to establish a joint venture responsible for constructing 30,000 fast-charging stations.

These initiatives aim to rival and potentially surpass the Tesla Supercharger network. Anticipated to commence before the year ends, the IONNA EV charging stations represent the initial phase of this ambitious endeavor.

The company’s announcement was made during a Spaces call on X with Farley and Tesla’s Elon Musk, followed by involvement from other automakers in the latter part of 2023. What are your reflections on these developments?
