DC Charging voltage

I am new to the forum, I posted a message yesterday, but it did not display in forum, sorry it is duplicated.

The wikipedia shows that EVSE DC output voltage is 50VDC - 1000VDC, if we design and build a DC charger output voltage over 50VDC, will it work to charge EV DC directly?

I read comments most said that EV DC charging voltage should be 400VDC, that is not just contradict to the wikpedia but also from Chris Howell presentation Electric Vehicle Charging.

Thank you very much.

Kind regards,

DC chargers require the output to match the battery voltage and a communication mechanism between the vehicle BMS and DC charger.

It is not possible to charge a vehicle on the AC input with DC.
