Wallbox Embraces NACS, Reinforcing Commitment to Simplifying EV Charging
Wallbox reinforces its commitment to the EV transition by delivering customer-centric and future-proof charging solutions by ensuring the broad compatibility of its chargers.
June 12, 2023, MOUNTAIN VIEW - Wallbox (NYSE:WBX); a global leader in electric vehicle (“EV”) charging and energy management solutions, has announced its decision to incorporate the option for NACS (“North American Charging Standard”) connectors into its DC Fast Charger (“DCFC”), Supernova. Wallbox is dedicated to accelerating the adoption of electric mobility through seamless and convenient charging experiences, and ensuring compatibility with the NACS is another step in that direction.
The NACS is a proven and increasingly accepted charging protocol in the North American EV market. It enables compatibility between charging stations and a variety of electric vehicles, allowing users to connect and recharge their EVs hassle-free.
Supernova, Wallbox’s DCFC capable of charging up to 180kW, is set to enter the North American market later this year. Already sold in 33 countries worldwide, Supernova has been designed to meet the industry’s need for reliable and efficient public charging that benefits both electric vehicle drivers and chargepoint operators. The integration of the NACS into its product lineup is a crucial step in Wallbox's commitment to expanding the versatility and accessibility of its charging solutions.
Enric Asuncion, CEO and co-founder of Wallbox, commented: “At Wallbox, we understand the importance of interoperability, which drives us to design chargers that are universally compatible. Incorporating the NACS aligns with our vision of creating a frictionless charging experience for all EV drivers. As a vertically integrated company, we can rapidly integrate these advancements, supporting industry shifts that make EV charging simpler and accelerating the transition to sustainable transportation."
The integration of the Tesla NACS standard into Wallbox charging solutions is part of the company's ongoing efforts to create the best EV charging technology to meet drivers’ needs in North America. Wallbox remains at the forefront of innovation, continuously adapting to the evolving needs of the market and driving the adoption of electric mobility worldwide.
All Supernova chargers produced in Wallbox’s Arlington facility are expected to meet Buy America requirements.
