Charging cable in the car

Looking forward, will drivers of plug-in hybrids or electric cars be more likely to charge at home or at charging stations? We are assuming a combination of both.

Charging at home and at charging stations

In practice, this means that drivers charge their electric vehicles at home for daily commutes. The infrastructure charging cables used for this are delivered directly to the automobile manufacturers.

For longer trips, however, mode-3 charging cables are required for use at public charging stations.

Mode 3 refers to a charging mode which uses a charging cable with two plugs so that the cable can be used in the socket of a public AC charging station.
