"US Faces ‘Adapter Hell’ On Way To A Tesla Charging Future"

"The federal government and the electric vehicle industry are moving to knit Tesla’s charging technology into public networks, positioning the company’s technology as an influential national standard.

On Tuesday, the Biden administration opened the door for the Tesla standard to be eligible for $7.5 billion in federal money. That followed a Monday announcement from SAE, a nonprofit body that sets technology guidelines, that it adopted its first standards to allow non-Tesla firms to build Tesla-compatible equipment.

Volkswagen — one of the only automakers holding out against the Tesla standard — also said Tuesday it would begin to add the technology to its vehicles starting in 2025, including the brands Audi and Porsche."
