Tesla Australia to add CCS chargers to support Model 3

Tesla Australia has announced it will upgrade its Supercharger network with Combined Charging System (CCS) plugs, in order to support the upcoming Model 3 sedan. Unlike the Model S and Model X, the Model 3 will come with a CCS port, which combines AC and DC connectors – the S and X are currently produced with only a Type 2 port that doesn't allow them to utilise most public DC fast-chargers without an adapter.

'Hyperfast' EV charging to become a reality thanks to Israeli start-up - report

A start-up company from Israel is developing a new battery for electric vehicles that can be recharged in under five minutes - and it could be available as early as 2020, according to a new report. In an article by US website The Drive, StoreDot's upcoming battery packs should help to speed up the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). "The reason that adoption is slow is because charging is slow," said Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot.
