What I know is, that to handle 32A the minimal conductor cross-section is 6 square milimeters.
What I don't know how big the surface of a connector has to be, to support the same current safely.
Don't you think, the existing pins could physicality handle the necessary currents?
If so, it would only be a matter of intelligent communications between the charger and the car to ensure, that the electronic switchboard connects the right things to each other.
Do you think I'm crazy?
Maybe even more stupid, but it came to me when I thought about the norweginans missing their neutral conductor:
The Model S could charge from the three phases without any ground or neutral connector, when you connect each of the three chargers between two phases each.
Take a look at the IEC Type 2 connector.... that's the perfect starting point for any future connector standard.
Ok, I should stop now these crazy considerations and hope, that TM will indeed design a new European connector, that will eventually be adopted as "world connector".
Problem is: None of the Tesla people seem to have ever touched a Type 2 connector..
You want a direct cable from the EVSE into your car without any signal boxes lying around.
