Press Release

For the first time in its history, CharIN brings together a dozen medium- and heavy-duty vehicles for an interoperability testing event at DTNA Electric Island in Portland, Oregon giving a strong signal for the expansion of electrification into other duty-cycles.

The Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN), a leading industry association driving global decarbonization through the worldwide electrification of transportation celebrated another successful North American Conference and Interoperability Testing Event. The testing and introduction of the Megawatt Charging System (MCS) standard to North America, along with the participation of multiple Class 6-8 vehicles, marked the first time that the medium- and heavy-duty vehicle industry was the focus of a CharIN testing event.
