Volvo V60 Plug-In Charging At Tesla Supercharger?
Though this Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid appears to be charging at a Tesla Supercharger, the fact of the matter is that the vehicle is not receiving any juice.
In Europe, the Supercharger connector will physically fit into the Volvo’s outlet, but no current will flow for various reasons (pin incompatibility and Tesla’s authentication process are the primary reasons why this Volvo can’t receive juice from the Supercharger).
Apparently, some unknowing plug-in electric car owners in Europe will indeed plug into a Supercharger and assume that their car is getting a charge. We’re not sure if that’s the case here or if the owner of the Volvo is just providing a fun photo-op.
