In a message on its website, the American carmaker confirmed that transparent cars equipped with the current CCS will gain access to Tesla’s Supercharger network in 2025 via an adapter.

Peter Rawlinson, CEO of Lucid, said the adoption of NACS is an important next step in providing our customers with widespread access to safe and convenient charging solutions for their Lucid vehicles. We believe that a unified charging standard, supporting the nationwide deployment of future-ready higher voltage charging stations, will be a critical step in enabling American consumers to use electric vehicles.

Interestingly, Rawlinson once worked as a chief engineer at Tesla and was involved in the design of the automaker’s charging plug.

With many automakers now promising to switch to the NACS fork, it was only a matter of time before the luxury electric car maker hit the production line. In fact, Rawlinson indicated in early July that Lucid would likely use the design at some point.
