There has been an increasing amount of discussion about various alternative charging solutions including quite a few confusions about present vs future capabilities of various technologies. It seems to me we need a dedicated thread on teh subject; Long Tail Pipe does have a superficial be useful comparison of standards: EV DC Fast Charging standards – CHAdeMO, CCS, SAE Combo, Tesla Supercharger, etc CharIN (Charging Interface Initiative) began with German automakers but now includes almost everyone, including Tesla. The CCS/SAE Combo is the common descriptor of user interface: http://www.charinev.org Files of the CCS Design Guide and Specifications are attached. CHAdeMO has lots of information about present and future developments on their site. I have not attached any files because this is probably better known to Tesla people: CHAdeMO Association "CHAdeMO is an abbreviation of "CHArge de MOve", equivalent to "move using charge" or "move by charge". The name is also a pun drawn from O cha demo ikaga desuka in Japanese, translating to English as "How about some tea?", referring to the time it would take to charge a car..." from CHAdeMO - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia SAE J1772 is usually a work in progress, but the traditional J1772 plug has been incorporated as part of the North American version of the CCS (often called SAE Combo). I link to the iwki, because that is the most concise source I know: SAE J1772 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I hope knowledgable people among us, or at least opinionated ones, will discuss all this and the Chinese standard too. I did not mention Superchargers but they clearly are included.
