More Than 3,500 CCS Combo Fast Chargers Now Available In Europe
Since the beginning of 2017 (into October), the number of CCS Combo DC fast chargers has increased in Europe by around 750 units, to more than 3,500 in operation today.
The pace of growth, as compared to October 2016, is over 40% when CCS had just reached a milestone of 2,500 charge points.
The growth and locations of the Combo chargers can be noted by the CCS Charge Map.
A significant characteristic of CCS Combo locations are that they are also multi-standard chargers, with both CHAdeMO and/or 3-phase AC type 2 along for the ride.
Typical power output is between 20 to 50 kW.
Total number of CHAdeMO in Europe hit 5,000.
According to the map, less than 60% of the CCS chargers (over 2,000) were confirmed as available 24/7, which we suppose is not-so-good when you need charge in the middle of the night, or in some cases on the the weekend.
Germany has also finally managed to overtake the UK as country with the highest number of CCS stations:
- Germany – 754
- UK – 654
- France – 391
- Norway – 364
- Sweden – 280
