Korea introduces CCS a standard for electric vehicles

The Korean Society of Automotive Engineers announced that South Korea decided to use the Combo 1 plug, which is based on the Combined Charging System (CCS), as the standard for electric vehicles.

With that statement, another country decided to use CCS as the standard for fast charging of electric vehicles.


Hyundai is the major Korean car producer that will use CCS in its EVs, which is already standard in Europe and North America. The majority of electric cars on Korean streets already have CCS and with the statement of Hyundai, the number of cars with CCS in Korea will increase to an even higher level.


The CharIN e.V. highly welcomes this decision. More and more Korean companies have already joined the CharIN e.V. to support the initiative to establish the Combined Charging System as the standard for all electric vehicles worldwide.
