Sandy Munro examines Tesla charging connector: ‘lighter, more cost-effective’

Munro and Associates analyzed the Tesla charging connector and charging port, saying it is more compact, lighter and more cost-effective than the CCS alternative.

Munro and Associations slowly making a name for themselves on YouTube, analyze vehicle components and as well as complete vehicles to find the flaws and advantages of designs used by automotive engineers. The company discussed the Tesla charging connector and corresponding charging port in the last episode. They found the Tesla design to be “more space efficient, lighter and less expensive” than the CCS charger alternative.

It’s no surprise that Munro and Associates’ Tesla connector, also known as the North American charging standard (not yet officially recognized as a North American standard), is an excellent design. The CCS1 design found in most other manufacturers’ vehicles is a large, clunky, and much lighter experience than the Tesla design. However, until recently, they were unable to use Tesla’s proprietary design.

Tesla will now license other manufacturers to use the Tesla charging standard in their vehicles and charging equipment. According to Munro and Associates, Tesla may try to work with other charging networks in the future to expand the availability of their charging standard. However, no other automaker has yet adopted Tesla’s design in their vehicles, except Aptera.

Munro and Associates rightly point out the complexity of the standard-setting debacle in the United States. With many manufacturers using CCS in their production vehicles, a drastic change to the Tesla charging port could leave drivers with a CCS connector upside down. Meanwhile, if the automaker decided to switch to the Tesla standard, it would be forced to redesign the charger found in every vehicle it currently produces, adding more costs.

Automakers wouldn’t be the only ones forced to make a tough choice. Automotive suppliers of charging points and charging plugs would have to completely rethink the production of the new standard, and charging station operators would have to make a Tesla connector available in each of them. often national charging networks.

Needless to say, the charging port and connector issue isn’t going away anytime soon. And unfortunately, despite the advantages of the Tesla connector, the associated costs (and recognition of Tesla’s engineering) may be too much to make the standard universal.
