A wasteful territorial war has engulfed EV fast charging.

 Three separate formats are involved: Japan vs. Europe vs. North America vs. Tesla.

But now we have a winner at last. Who triumphed?

Ford, General Motors, and Rivian have all promised to make their cars compatible with the Tesla charging standard.

EV drivers had to carry adapters or were constrained in where they could get fast charging due to the various charging formats.

While non-Tesla charging stations required a variety of plugs to accommodate various formats.

In general, non-Tesla chargers are terrible. They frequently have poor power, are bulky, and are unreliable.

 Tesla instead created a user-friendly, widespread network of chargers while legacy automakers hesitated and refused to invest in one.
