Nissan DC fast charger with CHAdeMO plug
A week ago, we asked what was happening with the CHAdeMO DC fast charger rollout.
We questioned the rollout status because official data on the CHAdeMO Association website had not been updated for a long time.
Now, we see some major updates (hmm...wonder if the CHAdeMO team saw our post on InsideEVs?) with hundreds more confirmed stations:
"The number of CHAdeMO DC Quick chargers installed up to today is 3511.
-- (Japan 1,967, Europe 990, USA 554, Others 12) last update 2014.01.28"
With those figures, we see that since September 2013, CHAdeMO chargers installs in the US increased by 248 (306 installed in the US as of September 10, 2013).
The figures show that Japan's CHAdeMO network is growing at a steady rate and soon should reach 2,000 points.. This is more than some countries have public AC points!
Europe seems to still not be updated and, hence the same 990 number we saw a week ago. However, we believe that over 1,000 CHAdeMO chargers are in the ground in Europe.
Okay, for those doing the math, you'll see CHAdeMO Association made a mistake:
1,967 + 990 + 554 + 12 = 3,523. Not 3,511 as reported by CHAdeMO. Clearly, the 12 "Others" weren't added in. Perhaps CHAdeMO should update its site one more time (hint...hint).
