In 2019, The Japanese Plug-In Electric Car Market Declined Again
https://insideevs.com/news/394406/2019- ... car-sales/
Remember, this is in a country with at least 7600 CHAdeMO chargers per https://www.chademo.com/ vs. 3900 in North America. IIRC, Japan is about 89% the land area of California.The Japanese plug-in electric car market is in a disappointing stage. After a 7% decrease in 2018, in 2019 sales decreased by another 17% year-over-year to 43,867.
The market share was just 0.8% (compared to 1.0% in 2018, and 1.1% in 2017), which is very low compared to many other countries.
With all the CHAdeMO fast-charging and the island-type of country, we would expect that Japan, an oil importer, would be a leading plug-in car market.
