I am an Engineer, at a company that provides transportation related products and solutions.
Recently I was asked to design an EV car charging station. I quickly realized that car charging lacks standardization between car makers (different plugs, voltages, amperages, communication with the car etc).
I am aware of some of the new standards related to the matter, but at least for the time being the car manufacturers do not seem to follow them.
After discussing the matter with the project manager, I was told to design a charging station that will be able to charge as many cars as possible, taking into account the current market status.
Is anyone aware of any valid market share chart of the current electric cars in Europe?
Is there any compatibility list between different cars, regarding plugs or electrical characteristics? Or at least any list of manufactures that have already produced cars according to any standard?
