There Can Be Only One. Backs CHAdeMO Over New SAE

A few days ago, the Society of Engineers chose a new single-port fast method as its standard for fast for electric vehicles, the Combined System .  And if this was 2009, would have been no big The problem is of course, that it is not 2009, its 2012, and this new doesn t go into effect by any 2013, with all new vehicle (at least in Europe) beginning in

Meanwhile, going on for the of the last 4 years, there already is a fast charging system much exclusively all around the namely CHAdeMO.

Granted, the newly announced SAE being a harmonized single-port, a lot of sense but many new concepts/ideas don t the established norm if the cost of them isn t greater than the

In this case, the new system a prettier receptacle, and a few square of landscape under your cap vs. starting an industry destabilizing war with an fast charging infrastructure on the ground that makes up of the world s fast charging along with a standard charging outlet that is on (or as an option on) 95% of all electric cars.

New Hotness — Combined

Given that Nissan is the leader in plug-in vehicles planned and in produced to date, we it was best to go directly to them to see how felt, as they probably as much weight as anyone.  I Katherine Zachery, who is the first from Corporate Communications at North America, if Nissan be complying with this new sticking with the old CHAdeMO or maybe perhaps attempting to both needs regionally in NA and Europe, CHAdeMO in Japan), and she had to say:

We support CHAdeMO standard and are its rollout and compatibility across all and chargers. One global standard is and CHAdeMO is currently the only quick-charge standard existing

And why wouldn t they?  Nissan, with Mitsubishi and Toyota are the players behind this established Zachery then took the to point out the obvious, and why another doesn t make sense:

All cars equipped for fast on the roads today are compatible. As you may the Nissan LEAF has as standard a DC Fast Charge port on the SL level,which comprises the vast of LEAF sales. Quick using theCHAdeMO standard been installed by companies AeroVironment, 350Green, NRG and ECOtality in a few states – with an estimated 500 DC chargers going in the ground year (in the US).

Old and Busted? CHAdeMO on Nissan

Here is something else to list of global automakers have signed on to back the new SAE other than GM are not exactly a who of electric vehicle supporters, three of them are the company.   How many production EVs with capable fast as an option have Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, Porsche and sold combined to the general public so far to  10?


For General Motors, other what ground their HQ sits on, one why they chose to follow group at all.  Clearly the new would have no hope at all without the General s presence to it legitimacy.

Obviously, we are not enthused the decision of the SAE to muddy the waters and an unecessary global turf war, system or not.  Eventually, one of two groups will win out, but the real loser is an even confused EV consumer.
