It's a shame the Model S will not have Chademo support, this many level 3 chargers would be game changing for longer distance travel with an EV.
I blame the the people in charge for US standard for dragging their feet. Why they all didn't work together to make a world standard is beyond me.
Each player is seeking their own advantage.
A company with no EV product in the near term seeks to delay any standard.
A company with an EREV product that doesn't need anything more than low power L1/L2 delays everything else or poisons the L1/L2 standard in favor of EREVs.
A company with an EV product available now tries to get the others to accept what they have already done.
Govs cannot set standards, the best tech (or marketing) will.
SAE is a pvt industry body - not a government controlled board.
