What cable do I use?
There are different kinds of EV charging cable. Each car model comes with its own cable with a plug at one end that connects to the socket in charging stations and a connector at the other that connects to the car’s own inlet (or socket).
Below is an overview of the international standards for the type of charging network connections.
Charging EVs at home is typically done using alternating current (A/C) in Mode 1, Mode 2, Mode 3, compatible with national regulatory restrictions. All the cables provided with the car can be used. EVs charging in public places can use either alternating current (in Italy Mode 2 and Mode 3) or direct current (Mode 4).
