Automakers agree on ‘single-port’ charging system for electric cars

A group of eight U.S. and foreign automakers announced an agreement Thursday on a standardized charging system for electric cars, which they say will “harmonize” the technology and speed up charging times.

Ford, General Motors, Chrysler-Daimler, Audi, BMW, Porsche and Volkswagen announced they would display the new charging systems during the upcoming Electric Vehicle Symposium in Los Angeles.

The companies said the chargers would combine “one-phase AC-charging, fast three-phase AC-charging, DC-charging at home and ultra-fast DC-charging at public stations into one vehicle inlet.”

Doing so will “allow customers to charge at most existing charging stations regardless of power source and may speed more affordable adoption of a standardized infrastructure,” the automakers said.
