Sales data of plug-in electric cars that are equipped for DC fast charging (of any standard) lead us to some interesting conclusions.
The current leader - CHAdeMO - has lost some steam over the first nine-months of 2016, as Tesla's proprietary Supercharging standard has a shot at becoming the most popular charging option among new BEVs sold this year.
Tesla Model S
Currently the difference beteen the two protocols stand at just over 14,000 with three months to go, and the gap has narrowed considerably thanks to the worldwide/all-time sales leader - Nissan LEAF going through some end-of-generation sales fatique, and the Tesla Model S/X hitting delivery overdrive ...but it is, what it is.
The CCS Combo standard, which is supported by the widest group of manufacturers, is third:
- CHAdeMO - 68,394
- Tesla Supercharging - 54,033
- CCS - 29,715
- Chinese GBT - excluded from the comparison
