Tesla is sharing its EV connector design in an effort to encourage network operators and automakers to make it the North America standard.
Those kW numbers seem outdated.I’m ashamed to say that did not know of the CCS2 plugs being used in Europe until now. It’s interesting as it has the capability to charge up to 22 kilowatts at home. Wow! I guess that my house will need an electrical upgrade to handle that one.
- Type 1 is a single-phase plug and is standard for EVs from America and Asia. It allows you to charge your car at a speed of up to 7.4 kW, depending on the charging power of your car and grid capability.
- Type 2 plugs are triple-phase plugs because they have three additional wires to let current run through. So naturally, they can charge your car faster. At home, the highest charging power rate is 22 kW, while public charging stations can have a charging power up to 43 kW, again depending on the charging power of your car and grid capability.
