    I just saw a post about BMW i3 and CCS DC charging.
    Here: BMW i3 Charges at First Ever Charging Station with Combo-Charging DC Fast Charging
    This is in the US but it uses the Type2-based CCS in Europe and supposedly support DC-charging here too.
    These kind of stations will soon be everywhere if BMW, Mercedes, VW succeeds.
    We really need to start lobbying Tesla to start supporting CCS DC charging. It's not as good as Supercharging but at 50 KW it's a lot better than you can get with AC charging.
    If not already working, it "should" be a software thing to get it working.

    This was a couple of months ago. Anyone heard anything about a CCS adapter?
