As far as DC fast charging goes the dominating standard in the U.S., as of today, is CHAdeMO (obviously excluding the TM supercharger network), but I think that is about to change within the next couple of years, if not earlier. With a list of automakers set to adopt CCS (Combined Charging System) that includes General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Daimler, BMW, and the Volkswagen Group, its highly unlikely that the CHAdeMO DC standard will dominate for much longer.
Since TM just announced that they are coming out with a CHAdeMO adapter for U.S. customers this winter in order to complement its supercharger network, my question is: Will TM also offer a CCS adapter in the near future as the CCS network starts to roll out across the U.S.?
Has anyone heard anything about this? or would care to speculate?
