South Korean gov't adopts CCS as official fast charging standard

One more nail in CHAdeMO's coffin IMO.
CCS adopters:
- VW
- GM
- Mercedes
- Honda
- Hyundai/Kia (just a matter of time till Kia phases out CHAdeMO completely)
- Ford

- Nissan/Renault
- Mitsubishi (pretty much Nissan)
- Toyota?

Then there's Tesla with their proprietary standard.
So basically Japan's CHAdeMO vs the rest of the world.

Combo chargers will eventually fade out, too. As charger kW ramps up, even if Chademo's standards can keep up, the expense of having two heads and two cables for every single charge station will continue to go up.
Yes, supporting two charging standards and two sets of hardware is silly and a cost driver. Not to mention the "average" driver getting confused at why they can't charge at every station where there aren't dual heads. The sooner we eliminate that kind of stuff in the US and EU, the better for electric vehicle adoption.
