In a significant boost to the Canadian EV market, Ford has revealed a landmark agreement with Tesla to double the fast-charging options for its customers, according to a BusinessNewsCanada report.

. Commencing from Spring 2024, this deal will provide Ford EV owners access to Tesla’s vast Supercharger network across the U.S. and Canada.

The partnership is set to incorporate over 12,000 Tesla Superchargers into Ford’s existing BlueOval Charge Network of 10,000+ fast-chargers, forming the largest integrated fast-charge network in North America. “Widespread access to fast-charging is absolutely vital to our growth as an EV brand,” said Ford CEO, Jim Farley.

Coming as Ford accelerates production of Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning models, the agreement also paves the way for future EV launches. Ford vehicles equipped with the Combined Charging System (CCS) port will have access to Tesla’s V3 Superchargers via a Tesla-produced adapter. From 2025, Ford plans to adopt the NACS charge port for direct access to Tesla Superchargers, enhancing customer convenience.

Highlighting the network’s reliability and the NACS plug’s user-friendliness, Marin Gjaja, Ford Model e’s Chief Customer Officer, said the deal would provide “a superior experience for customers.”
