Just noticed that a new public EV charging station is about to go live near me (Electrify Canada, Canadian Tire, Coventry Road, Ottawa).
They have 4 stations set up, with 7 CCS connectors and 1 CHAdeMo connector. (There'll be a lineup of LEAFs waiting to charge, but quite a few empty CCS spots)
Does this mean that EV charging companies have decided on which connector to go with?
I wonder if Nissan is considering changing their charging port on the LEAF? Or maybe some kind of CCS-to-CHAdeMO adapter?
The company mentioned is funded by VW dieselgate scandal so yeah, they are favoring their technology. I challenge you to find a 2nd company doing the same. I think that will be a bit tougher to do.
Smart companies cater to the widest audience they can especially when revenue is so limited. Every CCS plug sitting idle while Chademo cars queue up only erodes the EV community. I think you will find that beyond VW, there is a lot more sensibility in the community. Also a lot less money unfortunately but as the folly of oil becomes clearer, that is soon to change as well.
