Tesla Model S Officially Listed by CHAdeMO Association As CHAdeMO-compatible
For years, the CHAdeMO Association has maintained a list of fast-charging units compatible with CHAdeMO and vehicles which can use the standard.
To date, all the EVs recognized as compatible on that list had CHAdeMO charging inlet, but now the list includes the Tesla Model S, which can use CHAdeMO via a separate adapter.
We already know that on some markets, where the CHAdeMO network is
too big to fail to big to build up a competing system (like in Japan) manufacturers will be using CHAdeMO. Tesla prepared this adapter for such regions.
For the CHAdeMO Association, it’s another way to show that the standard is alive and growing in all aspects – number of points, number of modes etc.
Who knows, maybe next the BMW i3 will get added to the CHAdeMO-compatible EV list?
