Ford's Delaware dealership recently sparked controversy over newly installed charging piles,At issue is its resemblance to tesla's supercharging pile。
According to the actual photos, Ford's charging pile is also rectangular and hollowed out in the middle, which is similar to the height of Tesla's super charging pile except for the color scheme.
We have learned,The ac secondary charging pile ford is deploying has a total output of just 19.2 kilowatts, the Tesla Super charging pile uses DC mode and supports up to 250 kilowatts of charging power.
Some netizens pointed out that ford's low power charging pile does not need ventilation like Tesla's, so it is not necessary to use the hollowed out design, which is more like a forced design for aesthetics.But the overall effect is “ Monkey see monkey see monkey;。
And the Ford charger gun is not designed inside the opening like the Tesla, but directly outside, which makes it look messy, which also supports some netizens' opinions.
Then, Tesla product design Director Javier Verdura also weighed inA fake, needlessly large, poorly executed imitation.
Ford did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but there is no denying that it sees Tesla as a contender.
