The USB-C high power charge can be used to fast charge Android phones and Macbook and other laptops. Definitely a nice addition as it allows fast phone charging and others can use it for laptop charging on long trips/when needed. I prefer it over just an adapter for USB-C cables.

Also USB-C can support USB-PD and Quick Charge specs. This allows Qualcomm specific phones to quickly charge and PD for Pixel phones and other devices that utilize Power Delivery standard. Totally different standard.

Thanks for splitting to make it more clear. USB-C needs not necessarily the high power but it makes sense to provided USB Sockets for fast charge and inductive charge. So there might be an additional split:

- USB high power (and voltage) sockets (change of electronics in the center console required)

- USB C cable (which is an easy addon as only a special length cable has to be moulded)
