Electric vehicle fast charging - number of outlets by network 2018

There are currently three main types of fast charging in the United States: CHAdeMO, SAE Combined Charging System (CCS), and Tesla. The CHAdeMO charging method has the most electric vehicle fast-charging stations in the United States. However, one of its competitors in the market, Tesla, has the most fast-charging outlets. The fast-charging method required depends on the type of charging socket on the electric vehicle.

Typically located in urbanized areas, there may be one or more charging outlets at each public electric station. California is ranked as the leading state in the United States for the most charging outlets and stations.

What is CHAdeMO?

The CHAdeMO fast charger was developed by the CHAdeMO association, which can name Toyota, Nissan, and Mitsubishi among its executive members. The trade name is a contraction of the term CHArge de MOve and is also a pun on the Japanese phrase ‘O cha demo ikaga desuka,’ which means ‘let’s have a cup of tea while charging.’
