LEAF and CHAdeMO charger

LEAF and CHAdeMO charger

According to the CHAdeMO Association, as of September 10, 2013 there were 3,073 DC quick chargers deployed around the globe.

The bulk of them - 1,858 are in Japan, but Europe is going bold now with 897.

In US, there are 306, which is almost 10% of the total, but not nearly enough if we consider that US is the largest market for Nissan LEAF - the most popular CHAdeMO compatible EV.

Rest of the world really doesn't factor into the total count with just 12 points - this figure hasn't changed for months.

Anyways, it will be hard to accomplish CHAdeMO's goal of having 4,000 units by the end of the year. Maybe 3,500?
