Tesla unveils a CHAdeMO (50kW) for the Model S

No CHAdeMO? No

Fast-charging is one of the killer apps, so to for the electric car. Not because you it all the time; most people charge at home, overnight, on the majority of days. But once in a moon, when you need it for a trip or when an unforeseen forces you to, it’s great to That’s why the roll out of public infrastructure around the world, when it’s free-to-use. is an foundation for the electrification of transportation is both significantly more than the internal combustion and makes it much easier to use energy ).

Problem is, not all charging stations are on the connector standard. That’s a that the tech industry through, and their solution is the one Tesla adopted here: an adapter that allows one to connect into another


The CHAdeMO standard was by was formed by the Tokyo Electric Company, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Heavy Industries (who Subaru), with Toyota joining. It can accept 62.5kW of direct current, though stations seem to deliver

It might not all next month or even year, but they have ambitious plans, as you can see in the slide which was part of Tesla’s announcement .
