CharIN response to Tesla opening its North America Charging Standard

Green Car Congress

In November, Tesla opened its EV charging connector design—called the North American Charging Standard (NACS)—to charging network operators and vehicle manufacturers. CCS and MCS are the global standards for charging vehicles of all kinds. CharIN applauded Tesla for including DIN 70121 and ISO 15118-02 communication standards for the NACS proposal. The Combined Charging System can connect to all AC charging stations without an adapter via the J1772 standard.
