CHAdeMO Chargers Stats From Activity Report

CHAdeMO and Combo2

CHAdeMO and Combo2

CHAdeMO Association Europe is presenting us the situation of CHAdeMO chargers from the front of the line in the standards war.

In Europe, everything is especially complicated. As of February 2015, all-electric cars have very different types of charging capabilities and charging inlets:

  • 14% BEVs without fast charging (only slow AC Type 1 or AC Type 2),
  • 86% with fast charging:
    – 50% CHAdeMO (DC)
    – 19% AC fast charging (3-phase)
    – 18% Combo2 (DC)
    – 12% Tesla proprietary (DC)

Renault, which uses fast charging AC in ZOE, recently introduced a new version of ZOE that can accept just half the power of previous ZOE (22 kW instead of full 43 kW). For now, both models are offered, but the AC 43 kW is not spreading to other models.

Tesla can use CHAdeMO chargers  as long as the owner buys a CHAdeMO to Tesla adapter. And finally, Combo2 compatible cars are growing in sales a little more rapidly than CHAdeMO-equipped cars, which means that market share for CHAdeMO will continue to shrink to maybe 40 and then 30% in the long term?

Here is a swell comparison of CHAdeMO stand-alone chargers (1,287) and multi-standard chargers with CHAdeMO and Combo2 (551). Stand-alone Combo2 chargers soon will cross 500.

And who has the most dense CHAdeMO infrastructure? Norway, Estonia, Denmark, Ireland.

Wow!!! Lots of interesting data, but some caution is needed of drawing conclusions without reviewing for a specific region as charging types actually available vary by country and geography within a country. While it is harder to obtain, the most informative metric is number of all-electric vehicles (BEVs) per number of usable high speed (mostly DC) charging stalls. Note: The EV industry has a jargon naming gap as terms commonly used can be easily confused by an average vehicle driver. 1. “All-electric vehicle” (meaning BEV, or battery electric vehicle) sounds very similar to all electric vehicles, as in a group of vehicles. These are two different things. 2. “Fast charging” … by itself can mean 220 volt 15 amp charging. Adding DC, or 3-phase it implies 400+ volts of power. All are called fast, but the charging speed varies greatly between type of power and connector. eg: A 400V BEV on 220V 15A would only charge at ~6 A (Ah per hour going into the battery). A DC fast charger can supply 20-150 A depending on type (20 kW to 120 kW), or 6 mph to 300 mph of charging (10 kph to ~500 kph). A very wide range of… Read more »

And, as usual, Tesla leads the pack by having a car that can charge at the most number of high speed charging stations.

As usual, their US map is missing the 22 Chademo stations in the Twin Cities even though it says “Updated May 2015”.

They might have updated their data without updating the map.

We need more cars. The only big selling cars with fast-charging are the Chademo LEAF and the Tesla Model S.

Everything else is pretty niche. (OK, the i3 is getting there.)

All of the Big 3 USA car makers should have SAE-CCS equipped cars out there. But all we have is the Spark EV . . . and it is only available in 3 states! Ford & Chrysler can’t be bothered to put SAE-CCS on their compliance cars, the Ford Focus Electric and Fiat 500e, respectively. PATHETIC.

i3 sits at #5 world-wide sales position for 2015 YTD by model, and #6 world-wide for 2014. In both cases it sold about half as well as (granted, the much more expensive) Model S. For 2015 the i3 comes standard with CCS; along with the VW e-Golf, CCS-equipped vehicles as standard should see a nice bump this year.

The German companies have at least delivered with the eGolf and i3. The USA companies are shameful though.

I am not sure why the article mentions that Chademo cars would sell less than Combo cars?

It doesn’t say that. It says: “And finally, Combo2 compatible cars are growing in sales a little more rapidly than CHAdeMO-equipped cars, which means that market share for CHAdeMO will continue to shrink to maybe 40 and then 30% in the long term?”

Chademo cars can sell more than Combo cars in that scenario. Or not.

Good overview. Thanks.
