Nissan announced that they will convert to the SAE Combined Charging System (CCS) standard when they release their 2022 Ariya, a 300-mile range crossover. This has been decided to harmonize the DC Fast Charging Standard connector, which will become the same for the US OEMs, Nissan, Hyundai, Honda and most of the European EV manufacturers. Tesla will continue to use their own charging system, but will be able to use CCS chargers to recharge their EVs. The existing network of about 4000 CHAdeMo chargers will be around for the foreseeable future, but it seems the direction over time will be to consolidate on the CCS for the EVs and EVSEs.
