Do all charging stations use the same standards?

The standards for the straightforward charging of electric vehicles have been set down for the whole of Europe for charging plugs, and world-wide for the communication between an electric vehicle and a charging point.

The European charging system Combined Charging System allows for alternating current (AC) charging with a Type 2 plug and direct current charging with a Combo2 plug.

Both plugs can easily be plugged into the same plug contact of the E-Vehicle. The E-Vehicle recognises the charging equipment used by the charging point and recharges the battery. Vehicles complying with these standards include for example, BMW, VW and Ford.

The fast charging points (DC) also support the Japanese CHAdeMO standard which is supported by various car models like Nissan, Mitsubishi, Citroen, and Peugeot.

All charging plugs have been especially developed for the continuous charging of electric vehicles and offer safety and comfort.
