That might be fine for business locations, but how many residential locations come with greater than 200 amp service?Ooooo!
I am guessing and hoping for the former because I rather think Tesla will continue to shun CCS. Another possibility is a seond port unique to the CT which resembles what is on the Semi. CT users (this might only be on the TriMotor) would then be able to charge at a Semi charging station or, as the Semi's do today, use an adapter box to charge from multiple V2's or V3's. I see some issues with doing that at a busy V2/V3 station though. Apparently when a Semi does that now a Tesla crew appears and sets out cones...
A V3 charger is a V2 charger with more modules in it. Similarly a V4 unit will be a V3 unit with more modules still and perhaps a second hose or, looked at another way, 2 V3's in the same cabinet.
One nice aspect of two of the current type ports is that the vehicle could be charged at double speed at home with dual HPWC.
This is the aspect of the CT that I am most antsy about.
