NxuOne™ Charging System Successfully Charges a Tesla Cybertruck

MESA, Ariz., Feb. 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nxu, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXU) (“Nxu”, “the Company”), a domestic technology company developing and manufacturing innovative EV charging and energy storage solutions, successfully charged a Tesla Cybertruck (“Cybertruck”) on Feb. 26, 2024; possibly the first-ever successful Cybertruck NACS (North American Charging Standard) charging session performed on a non-Tesla DC fast charging station.

One of the first Cybertruck owners in Arizona joined the Nxu team to test the compatibility of the NxuOne™ Charging System, the only universal, dual-technology solution available for public charging, with a Cybertruck. The collaborative effort resulted in the seamless and successful completion of multiple charging sessions. Nxu, known for its innovative, fast, and reliable charging solutions, has consistently pushed the boundaries of EV charging limits. The successful Cybertruck charge not only highlights the adaptability of the NxuOne™ system, but also paves the way for future advancements in the EV charging ecosystem.

"We are thrilled to announce this significant milestone in the world of electric vehicles. Showcasing the ease with which Nxu’s charging technology charged the Cybertruck exemplifies our commitment to improve EV technology and provide EV owners with efficient, reliable, and cutting-edge charging solutions," said Nxu Founder, Chairman and CEO Mark Hanchett.

As Cybertrucks begin to roll out into new markets, Tesla Superchargers have been the only public charging option for Cybertruck owners to date. The successful NxuOne™ Cybertruck charging sessions signifies possibly the first time a third-party NACS charger could accommodate a Cybertruck. As the automotive industry develops more electric mobility options, the Nxu remains dedicated to creating solutions that accommodate all EVs, regardless of make, model, or size. The successful implementation of the NxuOne™ charging system with the Cybertruck emphasizes the importance of interoperability and availability of plentiful user-friendly charging solutions.
