Share of standard, accelerated and rapid charging points (l’Avere-France)
France, as one of the major electric car markets, has also one of the largest and most dense charging points network in the world.
There are now some 8,600 spots available for public use with various density distributed throughout the country. Some places like Paris have thousands of charging points thanks to the Autolib car sharing project.
There is also note about share of different type of points (in terms of power) - 81% are standard (read typical Level 2 equivalent), 13% of accelerated which are 22 kW and need 3-phase charging capability, and finally there are some 2% fast charging points.
With well over 1,000 accelerated points, France is Renault ZOE paradise. The nation's second best-selling EV, the Nissan LEAF, has available just over 110 DC CHAdeMO chargers to gulp down a fast charge at.
