LG Embraces Tesla’s NACS: A Signal for Standardization in US EV Charging

The adoption of Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) by LG for their upcoming Level 3 DC chargers is a significant development in the quest for a standardized EV charging infrastructure in the United States. This move by a major player like LG demonstrates the growing momentum towards NACS becoming the dominant charging standard in the country.

But LG’s entrance into the US EV charging market goes beyond just adopting NACS. Their comprehensive strategy focuses on empowering businesses to become independent players in the charging game. LG is launching a line of owner-operated AC and DC charging stations with both Level 2 and Level 3 options.

The Level 2 AC charger features a flexible design with wall-mounting capabilities and a standard SAE J1772 connector. It possesses a load management solution and variable current settings for a potent 11 kW output.

For those seeking a faster charge, LG’s Level 3 DC stand-type charger packs a punch. Sporting a connected Power Bank, it offers a lightning-fast 175 kW of charging power through both CCS1 and, notably, Tesla NACS connectors. This dual-standard approach facilitates charging for a wider range of EV models.

LG views itself as a key player in the “electrification movement” and is committed to providing robust charging infrastructure solutions for US commercial customers. Nicolas Min, Senior Vice President of LG Business Solutions USA, states that their “product roadmap supports various use cases to provide a flexible, adaptable family of EV chargers”. This commitment to flexibility and adaptability is crucial for keeping pace with the evolving needs of EV owners.

Their nationwide B2B sales and support network will enable LG to expand its reach and empower a diverse range of businesses, including hotels, restaurants, venues, and even municipal buildings, to take ownership of their EV charging capabilities.

The widespread adoption of Tesla NACS by major automotive manufacturers like Ford, GM, Hyundai, and Toyota further strengthens its position as a frontrunner in the quest for a unified charging standard. LG’s endorsement reinforces this trend, paving the way for a more cohesive and user-friendly charging experience for EV drivers across the United States.
