One Plug to Rule Them All
The ramifications of this device are huge. Instead of trying to out-do each other, automakers can instead design a single, universal charger and then focus on their own technology advancements. This will also simplify supply issues, and mean that every EV won’t need a cornucopia of cords to plug in, depending on what they drive and where they drive it. Of course there are still some major companies (i.e. the Japanese) that have been left out of the loop.All in all though, this is a big step for electric vehicle acceptance.
