Over the past year, the number of CCS Combo-compatible DC chargers in Europe has increased from 1,500 to 2,500 units.

When as expressed as a percentage, the gains aren’t at all that bad, but still could be better – which hopefully will become reality with the mass introduction of long-range, and CCS’s ready, all-electric cars starting in 2017.

The always useful CCS Charge Map, now shows a total of 2,514 units (at time of press), which includes 2,262 that are open to the public 24/7, and 252 (either not 24/7, or at least not confirmed as open 24/7).

The CHAdeMO numbers now exceed 3,500, while most of CHAdeMOs are now double-head CCS units too.

A significant characteristic of CCS Combo locations are that they are also multi-standard chargers, with both CHAdeMO and/or 3-phase AC type 2 along for the ride.

Typical power output is between 20 to 50 kW.

On the country-by-country CCS adoption  list we find the UK and Germany together holding more than 40% of all the inestallations.

1000 more ccs chargers in a year is great news. Looks like momentum is building.

This data is missleading as a number of DC chargers offer both CCS Type2 Combo and CHAdeMO connections. Counting under each group results in double accounting … we need to be clear which locations offer both connections, or just one type of connection.

It’s a count of the CCS plugs in Europe Brian, whether or not CHAdeMO or Type 2 is alongside or not. What’s your point?

Actually it’s count of locations. Some of these locations have more than one CCS chargers.

Good now how about North America…

832 stations with 1246 chargers in the US
Another 50 or so in Canada.

Here’s the US breakdown as of 1/20/2016.

Nice.

Still a long way to go.

I guess that shows stations rather than chargers? Which under-represents Tesla.

Possibly (wasn’t my pie chart).

According to energy.gov (as of today)
http://www.afdc.energy.gov/fuels/electricity_locations.html

SAE CCS
832 electric stations
1,246 charging outlets

Chademo
1,099 electric stations
1,597 charging outlets

Tesla SCs
306 electric stations
2,039 charging outlets

That map doesn’t include all the CCS stations in my area. So it is incomplete. I wish plug share had a nice way to pull stats like that.

The ’20 to 50 kw’ power output is so lame. Even if you could consistently count on 50 kw it would be lame but if you’ve got a lot of 25-30 kw chargers mixed in there, those really hamstring long distance driving.

Brandon

I understand that the majority are 50 kW output, mostly triple head fast chargers

Part of the problem is that a simple count is not very informative.

What’s the charger for? If it’s for emergency top-up then even a single-headed slow-fast DCFC is OK.

But if it’s for travel, single-headed chargers and slow-fast chargers should be ignored.
