Electric Car Charging Standard Nears Vote
Automakers are expected to vote this week on a standard for cables and plugs that will be used to charge plug-in hybrid and electric cars.
The Society of Automotive Engineers has been working on the standard, called J1772, for the past two and half years, and it is expected to take a vote this week, said Britta Gross, director of global energy systems, infrastructure and commercialization at General Motors, over a web chat Tuesday.
"All major automakers are expected to agree to adhere to these charging standards. All infrastructure that goes in from now on should be J1772 compliant so all plug-in vehicles can use it," Gross wrote.
