    It sounds like an OEM system that automakers would build into their vehicles, probably with CCS in mind.

    up to 800V and up to 350 kW at all types of charging station – single-phase AC, three-phase AC or high-speed DC

    Continental has developed an innovative system which is basically a modified electric powertrain in which the electric motor and inverter (which switches between DC and AC power) have been specially adapted to handle the additional task of charging. The only extra component involved in this system is a DC/DC converter, whose job is to ensure an optimally regulated power flow to the battery at all times.

    The end result sounds similar to what Tesla already supplies, although with a potentially higher top kW. It doesn't seem to solve the adapter problem: vehicles would have a single port, and I'd guess it's CCS. But it could help drive greater standardization.

    This story also covers AllCharge, along with a Continental partnership with Nio / NextEV: Continental Unveils New EV Charging Technology, Will Partner With Nio (w/Video) - Gas 2

    Continental will supply tires, wireless charging systems, autonomous driving systems, digital instrumentation packages, electronic braking systems, and air suspension systems to the Chinese manufacturer.
