This standard is called NACS , and is used by superchargers in North America and Japan.

According to Ford, Ford's second-generation EVs equipped with NACS ports will be treated as 'optional' to support CCS , the existing charging standard, and will be offered with various payment options such as subscriptions. . “We are very excited to support Ford vehicles on Tesla’s Supercharger network and also provide API access,” said Tesla CEO Elon Musk. I don't want it to be anything, I want it to support electrification and sustainable transportation in general.'
