Mein Auto: 2007 BMW X3

Little bit more about the new standard, the one it's replacing, the befuddlement it may cause (doesn't seem to warrant the word chaos).

Thing is, the CHAdeMO cars also have L2, it's just fast charging we're talking about here, which very few vehicles (and even fewer charging stations) are equipped for. SAE should've gotten off their arse sooner, but it's not like the standard Nissan went with in the meantime is in any way entrenched...

2007 X3 3.0i, Monaco Blue with black leather. AT, Sport: 19" staggered replaced with longer lasting 18", Premium, NAV, Heated Seats.
