A clever marketing opportunity would be to charge $1000 for a genuine adapter so you could charge your CCS car at the Supercharger. The adapter will have a Tesla account associated with it so it will still be fast and automatic, thereby “buying” access. Considering the number of EVs on the road and upcoming that won’t have the Tesla plug, this is a goldmine.
Considering the Tesla CHAdeMO adapter is $550+ and the CCS adapter (piece of plastic with no brains) is $250-ish (I'm getting one from Korea) --- $1000 isn't out of reason.
Teslas will soon invade CCS chargers. Trust me.. it will be a mess. On my trip to Miami.. I stopped at 6 service plazas and never saw a single EV at a CCS stall whereas 80-90% of the superchargers were occupied (at 12-14 stall locations). Teslas will be soon hogging the CCS stalls too.
I plan to visit a few EA locations with my CCS adapter... I've been to a half dozen plus with my previous EVs so I'm familiar with them and want to compare . Also, EA is now cheaper than Superchargers in Florida due to the recent price increases.
Also the issue of charging port location hasn't been resolved. Most EVs don't have them on the driver side right and the current SC cable will not reach. Hopefully the new SC cable with CCS connector will be longer but I doubt it will be able to push 200 kW without liquid cooling like EA chargers.
