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?
That’s just because it is Electrify Canada which is owned by Volkswagen. All the other networks tend to be evenly weighted between Chademo and CCS. At least here the vast majority of EV’s sold are Chademo compatible. Namely because the vast majority of EV’s sold here are Tesla’s and Leafs.
We have two EV’s in our driveway. Both are Chademo compatible. From being part of both the Leaf and Tesla communities it is surprising how many households have these two EV’s in their driveway, especially around here.
In this Province coordination of EV fast chargers is headed up for and partially sponsored by the government although various networks and companies are involved in the actual installations including 2 gas companies, Shell and Petro Can. I doubt the province would sign on to any installation that excluded a format used by the majority of EV’s sold.
