U.S., German Automakers Push EV Charging Nissan Bypasses

Ford Motor Co. (F) (F), General Motors Co. (GM) (GM), Volkswagen AG (VOW) and five other carmakers are promoting a standard for rapidly charging electric cars that’s at odds with a method used by Nissan Motor Co., the top seller of battery vehicles.

Chrysler Group LLC is the latest to join Ford, GM and Germany’s VW and its Audi luxury brand, Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW), Daimler AG and Porsche AG in adopting direct current fast- charging with a single standard plug, said Mike Tinskey, Ford’s associate director of vehicle electrification. The system can re-power vehicles in as little as 15 minutes, he said.

Ford and the other carmakers chose the “DC combo” port because using a single-plug type whether charging at home or at a public facility is less costly and easier for customers, Tinskey said.

“We’re hopeful everyone migrates to a single standard,” he said.
