    If the Chinese market is important to Tesla, then I believe there will be some kind of accommodation. Tesla will not be locked out, unless they want to be.

    It sounds like China is coming up with its own incompatible standard. It will be interesting to see if they allow non-Chinese manufacturers to use it.

    5 DC Fast Charge vehicle interface standards:

    1. CHAdeMO
    2. SAE Combo-1
    3. SAE Combo-2
    4. Proposed China DCFC (GB/T?)
    5. Tesla Supercharger

    I mean, what does it mean to "join" these proposals?

    I think it simply means it will "join" them in existence, not that it will be an integration of those standards.

    Tesla's SC network for long distance travel will largely be completely built out in 2017. This Beijing charging network must be for some future short range cars that China is looking to produce with Chinese manufacturers.

    My takeaway: these two different charging networks serve completely different purposes. Teslas vs Chinese "city cars"

    Actually, unlike the Japanese, the Chinese are not interested in building "city cars" for their EVs. They do have quadricycles, but in terms of actual cars, they have pretty long range ones (see the BYD e6 for example, efficiency sucks, but it still gets 122 miles of EPA range: http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/Find.do?action=sbs&id=33383). Their GB standard actually is one of the higher power DC standards (750V*250A = 187.5kW, normalized to the 500V used by CHAdeMO and CCS it's 125kW).
