One of the problems surrounding electric vehicles is the charging infrastructure, which still doesn’t offer an accessible pathway for users. However, the industry is making efforts to solve this issue and one of them is the international standardization of EV charging.
To be more precise, a total of seven automotive producers from Europe and the US (no, Japan wasn’t a part of this) have recently announced that they are working together to develop an universal EV charging system.

Audi, BMW, Daimler, Rod, General Motors, Porsche and Volkswagen will offer an inlet-charging connector that will allow their cars to use the same fast charging stations.

However, like we said, the Japanese automotive industry, which is an important part of the EV market, hasn’t announced its intention to take part in this project. We have to mention that a similar initiative (the J1722 standard) had been introduced by SAE International.
