But the real hot news is that Japan surged to 5,418 adding in the past year more CHAdeMO chargers than the US and Europe combined and cumulative since 2010.
Total number worldwide stands now at shocking 8,549, but nearly two-thirds of all CHAdeMO are in Japan.
If we look back to fall 2013, there was a report on 306 CHAdeMOs in the US and 897 in Europe.
The difference was 591 stations, which means that the average pace of new installations is the same in both markets, although Europe began sharply in 2011/2012, gaining its 600 advantage.
