The fastest DC stations, capable of delivering up to 400 kilowatts, can recharge cars within 10 minutes, but they are not common.
DC Fast Chargers (also known as Level 3 or CHAdeMO EV charging stations) DC Fast Chargers, also known as Level 3 or CHAdeMO charging stations, can offer 60 to 100 miles of range for your electric car in just 20 minutes of charging. However, they are typically only used in commercial and industrial applications
Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) J1772 US Standard.
Combined Charging System (CCS) favored by Europe,
CHAdeMO - Nissan Leaf CCS - BMW i3 Supercharger - Tesla Model S China GB/T - ?Unfortunately, while fast charging electric cars were available in 2011 (Nissan Leaf, Mitsubishi i-MiEV), CHAdeMO charging infrastructure didn’t grow very fast. Some automakers lobbied against CHAdeMO deployment because it wasn’t an SAE-blessed standard. Instead the CHAdeMO was standard co-developed by TEPCO and the Japanese automakers. Instead of adopting CHAdeMO, the SAE developed their own fast charging standard (Combo Charging System), Tesla Motors developed a proprietary fast charging system (Supercharger), and the Chinese developed a different fast charging standard.
CHAdeMO protocol is, and has always been the most widely deployed DC fast charging protocol in the world, but it is now officially recognised as an international DC charging standard by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), a leading global organisation that publishes international standards for electric and electronic products and related technologies.

Electric carmakers in Europe are going to war over which plug to use - Business Insider
In all of the aforementioned technical committees, CHAdeMO is among the 3 different systems that were approved to be international DC charging standards: CHAdeMO proposed by Japan (System A), GB/T by China (B), COMBO1 by the US and COMBO2 by Germany (C).
CAN is a data protocol used between components inside cars, while PLC is part of the smart grid protocols.

Tesla has stopped shipping the NEMA adapters with some models and it is a $35 option.
Some codes say you need a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) which is about $100 more.
