    The claim that CCS is overtaking CHAdeMO is unsubstantiated, and sloppy journalism. I don't care whether CCS does or does not overtake CCS, but the article cites no data to backup the claim. Considering that CHAdeMO has about a five year headstart beginning when Nissan brought out the Leaf and began subsidizing many of the CHAdeMO chargers, and that most CCS chargers are CCS/CHAdeMO combos--so far there are few CCS-only chargers--and that CCS is being pushed by the car companies that seem the least interested in trying to do anything to help EVs succeed, I don't see the number of CCS chargers getting even close to the number of CHAdeMO chargers any time soon. Again, if it happens, I'm fine with it; I don't have a stake in either outcome. But the claim left a bad taste in my mouth and makes me think the author doesn't really know what he's writing about.
