EV's sold new in Europe use a "Mennekes" style plug:
However, I understand that there are adapters that let you connect a Mennekes plug to a J1772 socket.

There's also a 16 amp version for the same price, and for $50 you can get one with a plug but 12 amp only. They have a J1772 handle so no Mennekes adapter is required.
