This is false. There is no such thing as a "CCS" connector. Europe uses CCS2, which is just as incompatible with CCS1 as NACS is.

Tesla did not force Ford to adopt NACS. The announcement is from Ford, not Tesla. Tesla is already opening up Superchargers using Magic Dock for existing CCS-1 EVs. Ford sees the benefit of NACS and simplifying the experience for their customers to the largest charging network. Looks like a win-win to me.

US CCS (1) and European CCS (2) are incompatible anyway so that’s moot. Also China uses neither.

To my understanding NACS is now in the same standards track as CCS at the IEC standards body and is intended to replace some of the deliberation over a proposed "v3.0" CCS US standard upgrade that got stalled in various committees. There were some thoughts that the US needed a better connector than the under-adopted CCS1 (which is different from the better adopted EU/Asia CCS2 connector) and considered building a better connector from scratch for the US, but Tesla short-circuited that proposed committee effort by opening NACS directly to the standards body. It hasn't officially been standardized yet, but my understanding is that it will be sooner rather than later.

I don’t see the problem in having a different connector in US and EU for cars. If you’re traveling internationally, you’re not bringing your car.
