Car companies in the U. S. and Germany have endorsed an electric vehicle charger that can give a full charge in 15 to 20 minutes. Ford, Chrysler, General Motors, Porsche, Volkswagen, Audi, and BMW will all support the fast-charging interface. CNET reports:
Fast-charging addresses one of the primary perceived hurdles to mass electric vehicle adoption: the dearth of public EV charging points compared to gas stations. While early tests show that people primarily charge at home, the quicker system makes the option of charging at a dedicated station or charging point at retail location more attractive to drivers.
