What charging cables are available for electric cars?

To connect the electric car to a public charging station (charging mode 3), a type 2 charging cable is required. Type 2 in this case refers to the type of connector/connection on the side of the charging station. There are two types of connectors on the side of the vehicle. These are the IEC 621961 type 1 connector (also known as Yazaki), abbreviated to type 1, and the IEC 621962 type 2 connector (also known as Mennekes), abbreviated to type 2.
