The global electric vehicle charging infrastructure market was valued at USD 1.16 billion in 2016 and is expected to be growing at a faster rate during the forecast period. Increasing demand for electric vehicles has led to the growth of the product market.”
Japan Electric Vehicle Standard (JEVS) have stated CHAdeMO as reliable connectors owing to their ability to supply 62.5-kilo watts of DC. Tokyo Electric Power Company, Mitsubishi Group, Inc., Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd, Nissan Motor Company Ltd. and Toyota Motor Corporation together form a CHAdeMO association. Tesla Superchargers manufactured by Tesla Motors, Inc. is structured distinctively and offer some charging options including the superchargers. The Chinese GB/T supports level 2and 3, 250-voltand 400-volt DC and three-phase AC. GB/T pin design is similar to IEC connector; however, the functions are completely different. Type Insights Two varieties of chargers are currently available in the market which includes AC and DC chargers. Alternating Current Chargers are the one which is basically used in homes to charge an EV which uses AC. These chargers are further classified as Type-1 charges (up to 3.7 kilowatts), Type-2 (greater than3.7 kilowatts and less than or equal to 22 kilowatts), and Alternating Current rapid chargers (capacity up to 43 kilowatts). They can charge an electric vehicle in six to eight hours, three to four hours, and 40 to 50 minutes, respectively. Fast chargers accounted for a significant market share in 2016 owing to their high potential charging capacity which can charge an electric vehicle battery, to 80% in less than 30 minutes. These types of chargers include rapid AC chargers (up to 43kW), Tesla superchargers and DC chargers. They are super quick and help the driver to reduce nervousness and recharging time of the batteries.
