GM’s New Charging Outpaces Tesla By a Factor of Three: 180 Miles in 10 Minutes

GM Continues to Innovate

It’s good to see that GM continues to innovate. It will be very interesting to see what the next 10 years will bring. “the proposed XFC design is expected to offer grid-to-vehicle efficiency up to 96.5 percent, four times less weight and half the size of conventional DC fast EV chargers (DCFC), as well as a high voltage direct current (HVDC) port to utilize energy storage and renewable energy systems, minimizing demand on the power grid. All these unique features will accelerate the ubiquitous adoption of EV charging and enhance Delta‚Äôs leadership within the e-mobility sector,” reads the release from Delta Americas.

The Charging Standard

This is not a CHAdeMO standard. Looks like we are going to have a yet another standard. However, the standard is not fully known but will likely be an evolution of CCS.Some EV enthusiasts say that since GM has never heavily invested in CHAdeMO, this is a smart move by GM because CHAdeMO is already obsolete. A standard that will meet all future needs is where GM needs to be. It is like a third world country skips landlines and go directly to mobile phones.However, CHAdeMO finally caught up and recently updated their protocols. But no one has announced any plans to actually use them unlike CCS.
