The Level 2 J1772 seems like the standard for short range EV's. Where I live (Fremont, CA home of Tesla Factory) there are a ton of Leafs, Bolts, Fiat e500's, e-Golfs, Kia Soul EV, Mitsubishi i-MiEV's and Rav 4 EV's. (Not to mention so many Volts, Prius Prime, and other plug in hybrids) All of these take the J1772. Only the Leaf, Rav 4 EV, i-MiEV and Kia Soul EV have the option of fast DC Charging using CHAdeMO but it's extra, not standard equipment! As Mister_smart_LA said the Tesla's are proprietary and come with a J1772 adapter.
Interestingly the 2017 Smart can fast charge in Europe on a Level 3 AC connection. Like with so many things all our connectors are US only. They have totally different connectors internationally.
And for DowneasTTer. Volvo has also pledged to go Electric/Hybrid only by 2019. More will follow. Most will not until the last drop of oil is burnt so choice will prevail at most car companies especially if our gas prices remain so low in the US. But EV's have other perks in addition to not using gas so keep an open mind.
