A consortium of auto manufacturers is developing a universal charging system for EVs which is expected to be available from the start of 2013
While the thought of building a worldwide infrastructure of charging stations for electric vehicles may seem daunting, you know what would make it even more challenging? If each station had to separately cater to each make of EV on the road – think of how many different styles of mobile phone chargers are currently out there, for instance, and then picture that applying to cars. Fortunately, however, a consortium of automakers has developed the Combined Charging System – it will allow any one vehicle to charge its batteries using a variety of different charging methods.
