    I just found: ACEA - European Automobile Manufacturers' Association

    Nothing really new, they want to use the Type 2 (aka "Mennekes") connector to be used in Europe for public charging and later on also for home charging.

    The Type 2 Combo (with DC connector) should also be supported for fast charging.

    From what I understand they make no recommendation for the connector on the car, but they manufacturer should deliver a cable with which the end-user can connect it to a Type 2 connector.

    They have a presentation online with all the information, it's worth reading it!

    Companies supporting this:
    - BMW Group
    - DAF Trucks
    - Daimler
    - FIAT S.p.A.
    - Ford of Europe
    - General Motors Europe (what!?)
    - Jaguar Land Rover
    - MAN Truck & Bus
    - Porsche
    - PSA Peugeot Citroën
    - Renault Group
    - Scania
    - Toyota Motor Europe
    - Volkswagen Group
    - Volvo Cars and Volvo Group

    I'm a bit surprised about GM. I thought GM was frustrating the standardization process in the USA?

    But I'm really happy with this proposal
