Number of CHAdeMO DC Fast Chargers (estimated) - late December 2015

CHAdeMO Association released an update for CHAdeMO fast chargers in U.S. - just in time for 2016 NAIAS.

The number stands now at 1,530 compared to 1,386 in late December and just 810 in early January 2015.

In other words, the number of CHAdeMO chargers in the U.S. increased by 89% over 12 months.

That's good news for those CHAdeMO-equipped car owners (Nissan LEAF, Mitsubishi i-MiEV and Kia Soul EV or others like the Toyota RAV4 EV with JdeMo retrofit). Not-so-good news for future Outlander PHEVs owner, as the U.S version of the SUV will not be equipped with CHAdeMO.  /forehead slap

Is 1,530 spots enough (typically 50 kW)? No, but hopefully next year there will be substantially more.

With nearly 6,000 in Japan and over 2,750 in Europe, the total number of CHAdeMO chargers worldwide easily exceeds 10,000.

"The number of CHAdeMO DC Quick chargers installed up to today is 10353.

-- (Japan 5960 Europe 2755 USA 1530 Others 108) last update 2016.01.11"
