2016 Nissan LEAF & CHAdeMO plug

The number of CHAdeMO chargers in Europe grew by nearly 30% over the summer months to some 2,364.

That's 500+ new places to find CHAdeMOs, compared to 5 months ago.

We believe that a significant (but unknown) number of chargers are multi-standard given the new standard requirements regionally. Power levels typically can be anywhere between 20 and 50 kW.

While the UK still leads in total number of chargers (418), France is accelerating quickly, achieving second best in Europe at 332. Germany, Netherlands and Norway also are increasing the number of CHAdeMOs quickly. Significant percentage of growth can be observed in smaller markets - for example Austria nearly doubled its number to 63.

The total number of units globally, according to CHAdeMO, stands at 9,075, but that's only because this update was for Europe and other numbers from markets like the U.S. and Japan are several months old.

"The number of CHAdeMO DC Quick chargers installed up to today is 9075.
