More a comment on how weak the SAE manufactures BEV efforts have been, IMO, than on CHAdeMO's (Mostly Nissan's) success.
Wonder if Chademo can hold the sales lead for yet another year in 2017, if LEAF gen 2 does not come out fairly soon?
Number of EV's sold by type of Fast Charging protocol
As can see, Chademo still has the lead, but for the first time numbers have gone down, mostly due to Mitsubishi sales dive, while CCS this year is had a bitter-sweet year, as on the one hand the BMW i3 numbers grew and the Hyundai Ioniq Electric helped to boost sales, but on the other hand, the VW e-Golf numbers went down, counterbalancing the other two good news. Also not helping, most brands behind it are focused on plug-in hybrids, that don't include fast-charging.
2017 and 2018 will be all important years in the race between Chademo and CCS, as the Nissan Leaf will defend Chademo's lead over the CCS-compatible Chevrolet Bolt and the new wave of European and South-Korean BEV's...
