EV charging connector types

Not all electric cars and plugs are created equal. In particular, the EV charging connector or plug type standard varies across geographies and models. While there is contention around universal plug technology, there is critical mass from global automakers supporting the Combined Charging System (CCS) in North America and Europe. In contrast, Japan and its automakers use CHAdeMO, and China, the world’s largest electric vehicle market uses GB/T.
