7 Automakers Agree On Standardized EV Charging System

Tesla Roadster

It seems that there won’t be much trouble anymore in the future regarding different electric car charging standards as seven car manufacturers have agreed to support a standardized, single-port fast-charging system. These companies are: Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, GM, Porsche and VW.

Aside from the fact that the charging connectors will be the same for all of the EVs launched by these seven car manufacturers, all of the companies will use the HomePlug GreenPHY as the shared communication protocol in order to help integrate the EVs with smart grids in the future.

The Blue Oval company has mentioned that this decision will help the development of the infrastructure and it will make charging more convenient, while at the same time improve economic growth.

Most likely, the other big names in the car industry like Toyota and Renault-Nissan will join this partnership. This is good news for all EV fans out there and hopefully sooner or later all manufacturers will adopt the same charger.
