The CCS initiative CharIN and its members in the High Power Commercial Vehicle Charging Task Force (HPCVC) are now also working on high power charging for electric commercial vehicles with a charging capacity of one to three megawatts and, with the help of Tesla.

According to a progress report by the Task Force, there were five submissions from CharIN members, of which only one came from a single vehicle manufacturer – Tesla. The Californian electric car company joined the CCS initiative CharIN 2016 and at the end of 2017, when presenting its electric truck, had also announced so-called Megachargers, which are to charge the battery of the Tesla Semi within 30 minutes to a range of 400 miles (640 kilometres).

The other proposals submitted come from ABB, paXos, Stäubli and the Volkswagen subsidiary Electrify America.
