    Tesla also is a member of the committee, so even if they don't use the Tesla proposal there's a good chance the Tesla semi will use whatever standard comes out.

    Only if the standard is suitable for Tesla.

    Remember, Tesla tried to get a suitable charging standard through the CCS committee, failed, and used their own standard because they had to put ports on the car before the committee was willing to finalize the standard... and even when it was finalized it didn't work for Tesla and had to be amended before it could work for Tesla.

    I hope it is suitable, since the situation with CCS was a fiasco.

    Yes, the question is how long are those "further discussions" going to go on? 6 months, 6 years? Since Tesla seems to be the only manufacturer that's actually serious about getting heavy electric vehicles on the road, I'm not sure I see much incentive for European, mainly German, companies to do much of anything anytime soon.
