Both will use J-1772. Focus won't have the fast charge port that Leaf has (I guess).

ps : I don't take any launch information serious until a month and price is announced - along with information about reservation / ordering. Until then, there isn't much commitment from the manufacturer.

No quick charge on the Focus? Will any other electric cars have the quick charge? OR why did I go with the the quick charge option if the level 3 ESVEs are so expensive - who's going to install them?? Now I'm thinking I was crazy to believe there would be any L3s in Texas and I made a mistake about the quick charge option. :cry:

Deep breath, hold, exhale, repeat 10x ... wait and see, at least you COULD have an OPTION that some others CANNOT even TRY.

And once the electronics side are in your car, it's likely to be just the connector that will have to change should CHAdeMO not win out as the default standard.

My guess is that Leaf will set the standard, as Leaf will be the first to accommodate quick charge with a substantial number of cars. Sure, the US will always try to be different, but official "standards" are often disregarded if they come forward after a de facto standard has been established. See TCP/IP for example.
