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.
