New Electric Car Charging Standard Isolates Japanese Makers

Japanese automakers were left out in the cold Monday after SAE International, which sets technical and engineering standards for the automotive and aerospace industries worldwide, decided to support the single plug Combo Coupler standard for plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles. Japanese manufacturers, including Nissan Motor (OTC: NSANY [FREE Stock Trend Analysis]) had supported the two-plug, CHAdeMO standard, which is already installed in Nissan LEAF electric cars.

The Combo Coupler standard is supported by General Motors (NYSE: GM) and Volkswagen (OTC: VLKAY).

The two-plug CHAdeMO standard supported by Japanese car makers used one plug for rapid charging and another for overnight charging.
