Over 3,500 CHAdeMO Chargers Now In Europe, 1,900 In U.S., And 7,000 For Japan
The worldwide number of CHAdeMO chargers increased to nearly 13,000 this month.
Japan alone added more than 1,000 over the past 9 months, and now stands at nearly 7,000 units in total.
Big gains also come from Europe, where the number of chargers compatible with CHAdeMO (often multi-standard) increased from about 2,800 in late 2015 at the beginning of the year to 3,568.
Meanwhile, in the U.S., which has the lowest overall net amount of CHAdeMO active units of the three major regions, saw the strongest gain (~27%) of the trio – moving up to 1,912 installs, from about 1,500 in January.
